BEING HEALTHY IS MORE THAN HAVING A GREAT BODY. It’s actually a reflection of an ecosystem of various balanced parts. Health (with a capital “H”) is an essential balancing act of maintaining a fit body, creative expression, mental health, spiritual connectedness, sexual health, living in a positive environment and a career in which we’re flourishing. This is the foundation of my holistic fitness coaching philosophy.
I WILL HELP YOU CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
With 11 years experience working as a full-time fitness instructor in Los Angeles, I’ve coached hundreds of people from every walk of life, helping them to unleash their inner athlete and need to change their lives. It’s something I know about. As a kid I owned a candy store — and ate a lot of the profits!I can joke about it now, but back then I was fat and intensely uncomfortable in my skin, which led to more isolation in my teenage years. After graduating cum laude from Gonzaga University, I moved to LA to launch HERO Magazine. In LA, my physical fears and insecurities only grew deeper, surrounded by the “beautiful people,”
THEN, A SPARK.
Finally I said, “Enough!” and set out on a new course that changed my body, and my life. After completing the 575-mile California AIDSRide (San Francisco to Los Angeles), my physicality was no longer a question. After two successful years as a male print and video model, I opened the doors to my flagship training studio in 2004. Three other branded locations throughout LA followed in the years since—including Glendale and Downtown.
GETTING TRAINED IS INTIMIDATING,
BEING COACHED IS INSPIRING.
Whether I was rowing down the icy cold Spokane River, learning an aria from Le Nozze Di Figaro, or reading the minds of defensive linemen in a flag football game, the coaches in my own life have always inspired me to new levels of performance. Like warm taffy, they stretched me — and my self-imposed limits of what I thought was possible. They saw the end game, could communicate it, and inspired me to go for it. Before he died, I talked with Jack LaLanne, the father of fitness legend, and he told me one secret to being a world-class human being:
“The MOST IMPORTANT person on this earth is YOU. What are YOU doing to help the most important person in this world: YOU? To live right, you have to exercise, have goals and challenges.” —Jack LaLanne
Jack’s advice has influenced me, and I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the top producers, singers, songwriters and celebrities in the world. I feel just as blessed and lucky to have trained hundreds of regular people from every age and walk of life, who are determined to make a change in their lives and embark on a new adventure.
