Philosophy

We humans are pretty good at this whole science thing. We know how bodies and muscle cells adapt and respond to training. There is no guesswork involved. With the right inputs - progressive overload, effort and consistency - we will have success every time.  My clients who adhere to these principles are ALWAYS happy with where they end up. It’s simple, but that doesn’t mean easy. It requires working hard for a very long time, and you CAN do it. Stick with my program and you'll finally start seeing change in your body and your performance.

Specialties

  • Technical emphasis to maximize performance and minimize injuries
  • Long term program design for beginners to advanced trainees
  • Powerlifting preparation to excel on the platform
  • Coaching for the long term to increase adherence and habit building
