I am a Certified Personal Trainer with Life Time Fitness - A Healthy Way of Life Company! Thank you for taking the time to explore my background and philosophy on training! I have been coaching, personal training and leading group exercise classes for over twenty-five years. In the mid 1980's I was helping young men and women that I recruited into the Marine Corps prepare for bootcamp. That was my first experience helping people reach their fitness goals and it was very rewarding. I quickly learned the power of "group exercise" effect on motivation!
The experience continued during my professional life as a police officer. I helped other officers lose weight, train in defensive tactics, and work on better nutritional habits. Staying fit was an important part of staying alive in that profession. Many unique issues of that profession made fitness a priority and in some cases ... even a life saver.
As a professional leader I use twenty-five years of experience to help people reach their fitness and health goals. My wife, Stephanie, (pictured next me above on a mud run) is also an instructor. Currently I provide group exercise classes and personal training at Life Time Fitness located on Six Forks Road in Raleigh.
As a STROKE survivor providing medically supported programs is very important and one of our passions. We will work with your doctor to help get you to the best fitness level of your life using the power of "group exercise" motivation as well as one on one personal training sessions!
