While many in this new current social era believe fitness is based on ones solely outer appearance, they forget that one must first build their bodies foundation. It’s a concept I first learned at the age of 17 when I joined the US ARMY. Amazed to see how an individual “DRILL Sergeant” was able transform a stubborn physically weak street kid into a strong productive soldier. Jokingly aside from the yelling it began with proper nutrition and gradually at an intense motivated pace building strength and endurance. The duo ultimately leading to a slim physically fit young troop able to perform on the battle field. As a combat veteran I enjoy putting forth that same military energy with my clients. Using those military leader ship skills to train group fitness and one on one has been very beneficial to my clients. Producing the results, they desire. Always focusing on proper exercise form and technique to achieve optimal results and prevent injury. Read more about Fav
