My Story


The Most Unique Personal Trainer in the East Bay Area: 

I’ve spent my life since adolescence, years in college, 17 years as a coach and personal trainer and countless dollars trying to figure out how to lose weight, feel great and enjoy life, and I think I’ve figured it out.  

It’s not as hard as we tend to make it, but everyone struggles. Including me. I’ve struggled with my weight, pain, injury, impatience and being too hard on myself for mistakes. Often eating and drinking too much both knowingly and unknowingly.

But I’ve learned a great method from experts, scientific methods, experience as a personal trainer and my own struggles and demons. Take my advice, it’s a much longer road to do what I did.

I know the power of coaching and learning the right way to do something. I want to share what I’ve learned so people can have the body and life they truly want.

And It IS Possible.
