Holistic health is the basis of my training philosophy regardless of if the person training is a highly developed athlete, or an average person working to live a healthier life. Ultimately, athlete or not, every person is a human being who must live life day to day. Therefore, I strive to bring a well balanced approach to my clients’ physical and mental needs. I am constantly researching new innovative ways to help improve my workouts and training methods in order to accomplish this goal. Technique, Core Strength, Mobility/Flexibility, Explosiveness, and Mental/Strength Acuity, are the pillars that I build my programming off of for both my athlete clients and fitness clients.
