I’ve done a lot of stuff in my career as a fitness professional. But I still use the same job description whenever I’m asked. I’m a trainer. I help people work out for results. And possessing that skill is what’s enabled me to land the opportunities I’ve achieved to this point.
I don’t use fancy terms like “body transformation specialist” or “muscle mechanic”. I got to where I’m at by sticking to the basic tenets of my craft – and for me, that means never abandoning my number 1 pursuit: Fitness training and coaching clients. That’s the piece of the pie that puts a combination of my own fitness background, my school-based knowledge, and my time spent competing in varsity track, to good practice on a regular basis.
And keeping my allegiance there has directly or indirectly paid dividends in the form of being able to educate other professionals, land some pretty high-profile clients, teach college students, and achieve all the accomplishments you’ll see littered throughout this website. I won’t repeat them all here.
Instead, I’ll use this section to give you the lowdown on what to expect hanging around this place.
Real Training. No Nonsense.
Just like the slogan of this website implies, you won’t have to filter through fluff or off-topic material to get to the goods. This site is dedicated to delivering training information and advice for a large demographic of people. There’s strength training, fat loss, muscle development, and conditioning advice that ranges from beginner level content to advanced content for experienced trainees. You’ll find most of this variety by keeping abreast with the work I have published in different print magazines (I’m usually on newsstands for something every month) and digital publications. In addition to this, my “training tips” section will highlight nuggets of fitness advice (or good exercises to try) for your convenience. As a whole, it’s a lot of content – I know – but the site makes it fairly easy to navigate through and also keyword search just what you might be looking for.
I use my blog section a bit differently than most fitness professionals. I don’t post too often, but when I do, you can count on a more editorial piece that highlights things I see in the fitness industry, and how they can affect the culture of fitness as a whole. Some of the subjects I choose to zero in on may open your eyes to a different perspective through a counter-intuitive lens.
Personally, although I keep to the same principles of fitness and training as I always have, the nature of my outlook on training as a whole – and what it means to us all – has shifted, especially now that I’m in my mid 30’s. I’ve found much value in having a diversified approach to fitness, with longevity and sustainable results being the hub. That’s the thematic message you’ll read me preaching in my articles, and that’s what you’ll watch and hear me reiterate on TV, radio, and podcast interviews. I don’t expect that message to change.
If you’ve read this far, you probably have a mind for fitness similar to mine: You don’t want the fluff, and would rather seek actionable training information from a legit coach who does his best to tell it like it is. And you got it.
But All Of This Doesn’t Mean You Should Listen To Me.
However, if your goals include getting stronger, improving your form, avoiding injury, looking and feeling more athletic, and most importantly, learning how to implement all the fitness info you’re taking in, you may be interested in what I have to say. If you’d like to attend one of my lectures or workshops in person, be sure to keep abreast with my speaking schedule for the latest updates on where and when I’m speaking next.
