Do you have a personal philosophy? My personal philosophy is to exert focus, hard work, and dedication in everything I do. There is no magic pill, there is no quick-fix, and there is no reason for self-punishment because of the foods you may have consumed earlier in the day. There is, however, science. A lot of science. So much science, that everything is pieced together to fit your individual success goals. Now, I'll go into a bit more detail to support my previous statements. 

There is no magic formula.

There will always be some company or brand that strives to do nothing more than to pull you in with their products and flashy containers; we've all fallen for them at some point; I definitely have. But the hard truth is, there is no product that is going to do the work for you. There is no secret to getting a six-pack. There is no plan that is going to make your biceps grow an inch in a week. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. I'm not here to sell you a magical supplement that promises mythical results. I'm here to give you a science-based program with no trickery.

patience. patience. patience.

As I mentioned before, there are no secrets to success when it comes to health and fitness. It doesn't matter if you want to be a bodybuilder, a power-lifter, or just lose a few pounds so you can fit into your "skinny pants." Always remember, it all boils down to this one principle, only you can change you.  Obtaining LASTING results will require hard work, and as much as I hate to say it- patience. Remember what your grandma told you. "Patience is a virtue."

Slow is fast and fast is slow

Success that is quickly earned is quickly lost. Have you ever heard the saying "the lazy man works twice as hard"? Well, its true. Let me explain. Like I said previously, your health and fitness are not get-rich-quick schemes. It takes time. Have you ever seen (or maybe been the person) who takes part in the latest, greatest fad diet and had great success in the beginning, only to regain the weight they lost or maybe even more? Don't lie. 100% of you said yes to that question in your head. Fad diets are for people trying to take short cuts to get to their dream body. Those diets are unsustainable and will leave you back where you started, or worse, farther behind than when you started. If you were to have invested that time in a consistent diet and exercise program that is maintainable, you would have been much closer to your goals than where your fad diet/exercise program left you. Remember, slow is fast and fast is slow. 

Fun Fun for everyone!

Your time in the gym should not be a punishment. You should enjoy training. The absolute, number one, most important factor in achieving your goals is adherence. I could write up the best training protocol that the world has ever seen but if you don't enjoy it, you aren't going to do it; therefore, achieving no results. This is why, when determining your workout protocol, I factor in not only your goals but your preferences and time availability as well. 


If you read my bio, you know that before I became a certified personal trainer, I was an engineer. I naturally view training through a scientific lens. I provide basic tweaks on commonly used exercises to make them more effective. I also strive to keep as up to date as possible on scientific research in regards to training and nutrition in order to provide you with the best information possible. 

fear mediocrity

No matter who you are or where you live, there is one inescapable fact. You are not going to live forever. Knowing this, why wouldn't you strive every single day to accomplish your dreams? I apply this not only to my training, but to every aspect of my life. That is why I bust my hump every single day to make sure that at the end of the day, I am one step closer to my dreams. I would rather try my hardest only to find out that I wasn't good enough than to get to the end of my life and wonder if I was good enough. If you hire me I will do everything I can to help you reach your fitness dreams but even if you don't, I would have you to take this one message away from your time spent on my site, "chase your dreams and fear mediocrity".
