About me

I have been a personal trainer for 12 years and have worked with every kind of client from the morbidly obese, to those recovering from an injury, to those just looking to stay in shape, to elite athletes training for competition. That said, none of my work has been as rewarding as the pre- and postnatal training I have done.

I came to training through my martial arts practice and had no pre- or postnatal training experience when my very first client got pregnant. I went straight to Barnes and Nobles and after some time there, picked up "The Pilates Pregnancy" by Mari Winsor. I was hooked.

I've always known I wanted to be a father (well okay, just since I was seven) and studying pregnancy from a personal training perspective was fascinating and something I became very passionate about. When it came time to renew my CPT certification, I opted for the Women's Health certification that covered pre- and postnatal training. I have maintained the certification and taken the course whenever it has been offered through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Over the years, I have helped six women (including my wife) through their pregnancies. Once they have been cleared by their doctor to begin working out again, I have then helped them regain their bodies. I am completely in awe of what women's bodies are capable of and struck by the fact that no two pregnancies are, or will ever be, the same.

My wife and I made the decision that having a home birth was the best option for us and after being there every step of the way for the 15 hours of labor I can honestly tell you there was no greater moment in my life than when my son was born. My wife was incredible. Our midwife actually told me while my wife was pushing that "she'd never seen a first time mom instinctively know how to push like that." Now don't get me wrong, my wife did ALL the work, but I would like to think all of the work we had done together getting her ready to push played some small role in how well prepared she was when the time came.

How I work with parents

I believe in meeting every new mom where she is on her fitness jouney. Whether you've been active all your life, or you have never really workout out before, I am confident I can design a program for you to help you develop the necessary strength, stamina and endurance you will need for the most physical activity you've ever attempted.

-Breath work
