    Are you struggling with chronic pain? Anxiety? Low energy or lack of motivation? Are you looking for a health & fitness trainer that can do much more than just show you how to use a machine or hold some boxing mitts for you to punch a few times to break a sweat? I know, this sounds like one of those cheesy informercials you see on tv late at night right before taking your meds. So, let's get to the good part in this bio and the reasons why I may or may not be a perfect fit for your health and fitness needs.


    Complimentary Health & Fitness Assessment: First and foremost, I offer every single one of my potential clients a complimentary health and fitness assessment for free. This allows you to interview me, gauge my style of coaching and ask any questions you have that will help you determine if I am the health and fitness expert you wish to work with. If it turns out that I am not your guy that's ok, I will not use any pushy sales tactics on you before, during or after our complimentary assessment. To schedule our initial assessment please send me a message on how I can contact you and your availability. Because this is my "neighborhood trainer" profile and I live in the heart of Manhattan (New York, NY), I do offer my neighbors who find me here a special incentive exclusively available to my neighbors. If you are my neighbor, please feel free to message me for more information on that.

    Specialty: I specialize in teaching clients how to heal their chronic pain and anxiety symptoms through nutrition, exercise, boxing (if requested by client) and stress management, and yes, if you do not have chronic pain or anxiety and wish to work with me you can still contact me and I'll be more than happy to assist you in reaching your health and fitness goals.

    Style of Training: My style of fitness training revolves around a holistic, mind, body and lifestyle approach. I have a phenomenal sense of humor and I make fitness fun! Don't expect me to yell or scream at you, that's not my style, but I will leave you with something deep and inspirational to reflect on every single week we meet, to continuously increase your level of motivation and focus while we work on your specific health and fitness goals.


    Starting Your Program: I begin every health and fitness program with a conditioning phase to prevent injuries and enhance peak performance in the gym. I begin this phase by correcting muscle imbalances with balance and stability exercises, increasing core strength and muscle endurance.


    Stress Management: If necessary, and upon request I offer a guided meditation after the workout for stress management, and yes, I am certified to provide stress management and holistic healing and life coaching as part of my complete health package. After the initial conditioning phase, we move on to your tailored custom exercise program, specifically designed for you and your desired health and fitness goals.


    Nutrition Coaching: With your permission and request, it is not rare for me to go with you to the supermarket to help you pick out foods that are in line with your desired health goals. Many times, the only "healthy" thing on your "healthy" food is the word "healthy" on the label. Many times, those so called "healthy" foods, not only get in the way of achieving your health goals, many times they are the cause of your health problems to begin with.
