Having been involved in sports and athletics my entire life, I understand the importance of hard work, determination, and commitment. I take pride in practicing what I teach. I am currently a sponsored triathlete, adventure racer, and ultra-marathoner. I have completed several 50-mile runs, 100-mile runs, and 24-hour adventure races. Most recently I completed my second “Triple Ironman.” This is a 7.2-mile swim, followed by a 336-mile bike ride, finishing with a 78.6-mile run. I crossed the finish line in 51 hours and did so without any sleep. I’ve recently begun training for a “Quintuple Ironman" (12 mile swim, 560 mile bike, 131 mile run).
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine with a minor in Athletic Training from the University of Rhode Island. My first job was with the New York Jets, as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach and part of the Sports Medicine Staff. After several years, and with a wealth of knowledge gained, I decided to branch out on my own. Since then I have earned numerous nationally recognized certifications covering everything from injury rehabilitation and prevention to pre- and postnatal training to sports specific enhancement.
Over the years, I've worked on-set with actors and traveled with musicians on tour. I've worked with clients ranging in age from 20-70. I've taken novice runners to their first marathon - and marathoners to their first triathlon. I've trained women through pregnancies and athletes through injuries. The diversity of my clientele not only keeps me on my toes, it's taught me to be adaptable and flexible.
When it comes to fitness, one size does not fit all! Every individual I work with is different. That's why every program I write is different; tailored to meet their specific needs, body type, fitness level and overall goals. I've spent the last 10 years perfecting this concept and developing my own unique training style. I have found success by keeping a few core principals top-of-mind. 1. Personalization is my goal for every client and every workout. 2. Variety is key to success and injury prevention. 3. I believe that fitness must, and can, fit within your lifestyle. These elements are critical to a successful workout regimen. And each has been incorporated into the physicalfix.com system.
Helping people reach their fitness goals is what drives me every day. Occasionally I have the opportunity to do that on a large scale. I have appeared on many local and national television shows including Live! With Regis and Kelly, Good Day New York and the Fox 5 Morning Show. I’ve also consulted for ABC, CBS and NBC news programs. In addition, I’ve been featured as a fitness expert in several national magazines including US News & World Report, Fitness for Men, Exercise for Men and Cosmopolitan. Most recently, physicalfix.com (previously known as myfitstream.com) was highlighted in OK! Magazine. (March 8, 2010)
