REAL LIFE DESIGN

Often, trainers select basic fitness programs for you to FOLLOW will general customizations. I believe your REAL LIFE should LEAD the intrinsic design of your unique program. Before designing your workouts, I strive to learn all about you: What your week is like. The demands of work and family. What you do for fun (and what you hate). How you try to relax.

The best fitness program is the one that brings YOU success. No one else matters. And SUCCESS only comes from sticking to a regimen that you enjoy, gives you a sense of accomplishment and realistically fits your lifestyle.

FOOD IS FUEL

Too often, people have a long history of bad relationships with food. Most have tried a number of diets -- some quite extreme --

with lasting feelings of guilt and disappointment.

FOOD IS FUEL. And just as it doesn't make sense to try driving your car without gas in the tank, you won't be any more successful depriving your body of fuel. Food is a PLEASURE we are required to fulfill several times a day -- Make the most of it! Rather than following rigid meal plans or overly restrictive diets, our custom Nutrition Prescriptions and Coaching Courses TEACH YOU how to build your favorite foods into a variety of tasty options to meet your goals and stick with you for life.

PROGRESSION TO MASTERY

Starting any new program -- fitness, nutrition, etc. -- can feel daunting, difficult, and stressful. The most common reason people delay starting a wellness program is because they "can't deal with it all right now."

It is essential a successful program is based on PROGRESSION: Starting with changes you can make today, and practicing CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT, until you MASTER the process. Gradually, new changes are added to keep you appropriately challenged. A proper progression strategy not only brings the greatest long-term success, it is key in injury & relapse prevention, and provides a powerful sense of strength & confidence.
