I’ve been into fitness since jr. high beginning with an interest in (bordering on obsession) martial arts and you can see from the photo on the left, 1974 was my Bruce Lee phase. 13 year old hubris…gotta love it!  Anyway, from there I took up gymnastics and enjoyed it through my freshman year at the University of Michigan. After that my trajectory widened out to weight-lifting, running, and other physical adventures. I was working at the Chicago Board of Trade when, as luck would have it, in the summer of '99 a friend asked me to join him riding bikes to work each day. That 32-mile daily round trip stoked my personal fitness and piqued my interest in personal training. I pivoted careers in 2002 and have not looked back. I am fortunate to have assembled a group of clients who make this work very rewarding. It’s my goal to challenge them while keeping the workouts interesting. Our intent is to slow the ravages of time to a crawl and together we execute a strategy that’s sustainable. Weeks and months are not the goal but rather years and decades. That’s how habit becomes lifestyle. Dedication to health and fitness enhances my client’s lives and elevates mine. Love this job. Love this life.
