    Lets make fitness fun. I specialize in creating innovative, fresh and effective workouts to get you the results you want. Pulling from a variety of methods and new trends in fitness, I create custom workouts that constantly challenge the body and keep clients engaged. Outlets like Men's Journal, Bustle.com, Thrillist.com, InStyle and Allure have featured my workouts and wellness tips.

    More importantly, I try to make each session as fun as possible. Be prepared for jokes and lively banter.

    As a former athlete at Harvard I know all about training for performance and combine that knowledge with my certifications to maximize my client's results

    Any given workout with me will include components of: Weight Lifting, Agility Drills, Core Work, Muscular Endurance, Cardio, Metabolic Conditioning, Interval (HITT), Kettlebells, Mat Pilates, Components of Yoga, Running, Speed Work, and Body Building

      I gained 10 pounds after starting a new job and studying for the CFA. John and I started working together and developed a comprehensive action plan for our workouts. Based on my schedule, evening sessions are best; however, it's easy to get distracted after a long day and John helps keep me focused and ensures I get my sessions in. John is great at being both tough and upbeat so that the time goes by quickly. I'm starting to see more definition in the problem areas we identified - arms and thighs - something I was not seeing when I was taking spin or barre classes. I would highly recommend John!
