Head Trainer

After overcoming my own struggles with weight which came as a result of a high school injury; I decided to get back into shape, as I once was as a high school and college athlete. Getting back on track made it capable to compete in the amateur level as a boxer and later on in the Men’s Health Magazine NYC’s Elite Trainers Open. These personal experiences put me in an unique position to work and fully understand every single client. In addition to being a fully certified personal trainer; I also have an extensive background training clients and this has provided me with the tools, knowledge and passion to help any client. I’ll make sure you’ll pick things up, put them down and not only be good…but…BE GREAT!
