In my career, I have had the pleasure of helping many pro-athletes overcome challenges and be at their best.

Each athlete has specific strengths and weaknesses, and even more importantly, different people respond to various types or styles of exercises differently. Some athletes have aversions to certain types of exercises or conversely are highly motivated by other ones. There is a science and an art to customizing strength and conditioning programs to meet each client’s unique set of needs.

Everything that goes on in my gym is a means to an end! We start with the performance goals in mind; assess what you are able to do; develop a custom performance enhancement plan; work hard, smart and safely towards achievement; contend with challenges along the way; and, measure results.
