  • I love coaching! There is nothing more gratifying than starting with anyone who is willing and able and taking that person to places they never even dreamed of. You CAN do this. I have guided all types of people. I helped a woman who was 100# overweight lose all of that and get moving. Now she's run over twelve 5k races since! I've helped get young men into the military and officers into SWAT. I've trained a 49 year old woman and a 13 year old young man to national weightlifting championships in their age and weight classes, both of whom were not athletes when they walked in our doors. In short, you are only limited by your knowledge, which is where I come in.  I can help you, no matter where you start if you're willing to do the work and follow my guidance :) 818-726-5214
