    Personal Trainer , Group Fitness Instructor , Health Coach , Boxing Coach
    I grew up in NYC near Columbia University. Both of my parents are professors. I played HS basketball and have always been a yoga and fitness enthusiast. I went to the University of Michigan where I majored in religious studies. After college I retuned to NYC to become a pre-school teacher. After some deep soul-searching I decided to follow a career in fitness which was a passion for me. I got hired by Equinox and worked there for 4 years. Luckily for me there were a lot of amazing trainers working there at that time and I was constantly asking them questions. Keeping a beginner's mind, ceaselessly asking questions, and being willing to be wrong are still cornerstones of my training, teaching, and learning philosophy. After 4 years at Equinox I decided to branch out and go into business for myself which was one of the best decisions of my life. I recently created "Breathe Here Now Fitness" to expand my business and more adequately reflect the vibe of my training style. I teach a workshop called "The Art of Slowing Down," because I love helping people breathe and relax and get out of the fight or flight state that so many of us get stuck in. Though I love teaching what I call Yin modalities (as in Yin and Yang) such as Qi Gong, Coherent Breathing, and Yoga...I also love bringing out the athlete in everyone I train using Yang modalities such as the TRX, the Kettlebells, Animal Flow, and Convict Conditioning. I love getting my clients to enjoy the intensity of exercise without making fitness something that must be survived as a means to an end. I absolutely love my job and I am devoted to my clients. I consider myself kind of a life coach, because I tend to guide my clients through the emotional process of getting more in touch with their bodies, as well helping them handle the psychology of eating, moving, and breathing. Work with me if you want your training session to be an open hearted expansive experience. If we are a good fit we will know it and I will put my heart and soul into helping you achieve your fitness and life goals.

    • Overcoming roadblocks

      For years, I believed that by simply joining a gym and showing up a few times a week I'd be healthy and happy. Working out was a chore, but I belonged to a great (and expensive) gym. Everything would be alright. However, the reality was I barely went and I felt guilty. I didn't feel good about myself. Then, I met Dave. First, he was my trainer at that pricey gym, but when he left, I followed. I followed because he was helping me to realize my true potential. Working out wasn't about how many reps I could do or how far I ran. It was about overcoming fears and roadblocks I had thrown up through the years. It was about connecting with breath and movement. It was about honoring myself. I'm grateful for the physical, mental and emotional growth Dave has fostered throughout the time we've spent together. I look forward to continuing on the path.
