My Experience

A few brands and individuals I've had the pleasure of working with


Widely known as one of the foremost pioneers in physique transformation and body sculpting, my almost three decades of experience guarantee no challenge is too difficult for us to tackle together!

I specialize in developing individual training programs for men 40 and above, though I work with men from all walks of life. Rather than offering a “one-size-fits-all” approach, I fine tune a complete training program based around your unique lifestyle.

This gives you a marked advantage for achieving and maintaining your goals. Whether you’re a seasoned couch potato or professional athlete, I will utilize the most effective principles available in the fitness industry to ensure your desired results.
