title-bio

Over the past 20 years, as a NYC based personal trainer, I have earned the widespread national attention of fellow fitness professionals and clients. I am a frequent lecturer on the subjects of functional anatomy, core training, injury prevention and motivation. In 1995 I earned a Bachelor of Science summa cum laude with an emphasis in exercise science and creative problem solving from SUNY Buffalo.

Certifications:

  • The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA): CPT Personal Trainer
  • The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM): Certified Personal Trainer, Performance Enhancement Specialist, and Integrated Flexibility Specialist
  • The American Council of Exercise (ACE): CPT – Certified Personal Trainer
  • The American Academy of Health, Fitness and Rehabilitation Professionals: MES- Medical Exercise Specialist
  • Vivobarefoot Certified Coach – Barefoot Running Specialist
  • Evidence Based Fitness Academy – Master Trainer/Faculty
  • American Heart Association – CPR/AED First Aid

My experience in training and motivating a diverse client population, includes celebrities, teenagers, collegiate athletes, weekend warriors, pre/post natal fitness and fat loss individuals. At the elite Reebok Sports Club/NY I was the lead Master Personal Trainer whose responsibilities included teaching and training the trainers. On the varsity collegiate level, I was a member of the Track & Field and Rugby teams. Lastly, I have been published in “Cross Training for Dummies”, “Money Magazine” and “Women Fitness”. On television, I have appeared on “The View”, “New York One”, “20/20” and “Al Jazeera America”.

I feel it is very important to explain to my clients the “why” behind their exercises and movement patterns. This ‘why’ is the driving force behind all human motivation. Consequently, goal setting becomes an integral part of all my programs. You are completely responsible for your fitness level and quality of life. It is up to you whether you make excuses or take action to make changes. You have the ability to achieve whatever fitness level you want if you put forth enough desire and effort. No brain, no gain!
