Trainer. Writer. Speaker. Actor
Thanks for stopping by. My services, in person and in print, are really all about YOU–helping you look and feel your best. But I imagine you also want to a thing or two about the guy you’re considering working with.
I’m interested in—obsessed with—finding ways to move that can make you feel better, look better, and function better in every aspect of your life. All of my credentials stem from this lifelong passion.
I’ve been a professional trainer since 2003 and since then have helped people from diverse backgrounds achieve their fitness goals.
From corporate types to schoolteachers to luminaries in the entertainment industry, I’ve helped clients lose weight, bulk up, and feel their best in record time.
Finally—and I think, most importantly—I’ve helped to reshape how people feel about, and think about their bodies, so they feel great 24-7.
Let me take the guesswork out of exercise and training for you,
helping you get the results your always wanted in the least possible time.
NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EXPERT
In the last few years, I’ve become a go-to resource for some of the top fitness publications in the country.
I’ve written dozens of articles for national magazines, including Men’s Health, Experience Life (where I am a contributing editor), and T-Nation.com.
I have also co-written two books on fitness:
The Exercise Cure (Rodale) and
Your New Prime (HarperWave).
In 2012 I presented a lecture on the Feldenkrais Method® at the IDEA Fitness Summit in San Diego.
25 YEARS OF FITNESS
I started training regularly in high school, back in the late 80’s.
My wife and kids can attest that I rarely miss workouts, no matter how stressful or distracting my life becomes.
If there’s a workout program or tool out there, I’ve probably sampled it.
When I find one that is useful and effective, I implement it into my clients’ routine.
I hold a black belt in Shorin-Ryu karate, have experience in aikido, jeet kun do, boxing, and stage fighting (armed and unarmed).
For two years, I was a competitive triathlete, and finished as high as second in my age group in numerous events.
In May 2013, I completed the rigorous four-year certification program to be a Guild-Certified Practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method®–an in-depth system for improving body awareness, and movement quality and competence.
Feldenkrais can be used as therapy, to alleviate pain and improve function, and as a way to improve on already-excellent functioning.
Feldenkrais is the most comprehensive and effective way of affecting functional change in the body. For more on my use of Feldenkrais in one-on-one sessions, click here.
