I teach what I like to call “modern fitness with an Eastern spirit.” I help my clients master their bodies and become the strongest, leanest, and fittest versions of themselves. My holistic approach involves strengthening the entire body through functional exercise and natural movement, both with and without weights (no machines… ever).
Where my approach differs from traditional strength training is that we will not be lifting with reckless abandon to feed our egos and destroy our bodies. We will be applying the Eastern spirit of alignment between mind and body to create effortless maximal performance and unbeatable results that just so happen to go deeper than the physical transformations that we are creating.
One thing I’m not is a drill sergeant. I don’t believe in yelling at or talking down to people – I prefer to teach and lead my clients to success with my proven methods that I know will get the job done. There are no magic pills, but if you’re willing to take the action necessary, you WILL get the results – and likely faster than you think!

I’ve been passionate about health & fitness for my entire life, and for the past decade I’ve been obsessed with learning everything that I can to make me a better trainer and help more people transform their lives. I’m lucky enough to love what I do so much that it’s both my livelihood AND my favorite hobby – but surprisingly, I do exist outside of the gym too!
I’m generally an introverted person, but when I let loose I tend to be really goofy and have a dry, witty sense of humor. My introversion also tends to disappear any time I get on a subject that’s important to me, and then I suddenly won’t shut up – just ask my wife!
I just recently got married to my beautiful, amazing wife in March of 2014 and spent two weeks in paradise on our honeymoon in Kauai. I’m slightly obsessed with mountains (possibly because I’ve never lived near them?) and my wife is equally obsessed with beaches, so there aren’t many places more perfect for us to visit than Kauai! We don’t have any human babies yet, but here are our two furry children that make up the rest of our family…
Outside of the gym, traveling, hiking and being in nature are some of my absolute favorite things to do. I’m also an avid reader (and writer) and love to learn from or be inspired by a great book – which I hope to soon be able to do from the other end when I finish my own book!
Before I ramble on any more about myself and make this look like a dating profile, let’s get back to the point of this site – helping YOU to become the leanest, strongest, and fittest version of yourself. If you’re ready to start your transformation, I’m ready to take you there.

If you’re ready to channel the same mindset that has helped you succeed in other areas of life into your health & fitness, it’s time to take action and start building your new body today.
