Boulder Personal Trainer

As a personal trainer I am passionately committed to incorporating a holistic approach to health and fitness that encompasses cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, nutrition, stress and lifestyle management.

The effectiveness of my training largely comes from creating neuromuscular efficiency, enabling all muscles to work together properly and efficiently in all planes of motion. Besides addressing structural deficiencies, this method also provides a superior way to alter body composition through the recruitment of muscle stabilizers which cause more calories to be expended. Working together in a comfortable and supportive environment we will have fun training and help you not only meet your goals but also sustain them, whatever they me be.

My Philosophy

In the last 40 years obesity has drastically grown in America due largely to our increasingly sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diets. According to the CDC, obesity has become an epidemic in this country with approximately 30 percent of the population being categorized as such, placing them at high risk for such conditions as cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke. Moreover, over 54% of adults do not engage in the minimum level of recommended activity per week leading to poor posture from extended periods of sitting.  Because of this, musculoskeletal pain is the number two reason for physician visits in this country and approximately 80% of adults report having low back pain. I mention this not only to highlight the need for physical activity in our lives to remain healthy, but also to point out that a large majority of American’s enter into memberships at health clubs in physically de-conditioned states. This lack of conditioning often leads to injury or unmet goals in traditional training programs using the standard exercise equipment. The less conditioned the system the higher the risk of injury.  De-conditioning here does not only entail being out of breath when walking up the stairs, but also includes muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, and lack of core and joint stability which greatly affects the body’s ability to produce proper movement.

As a result of this, I have developed a style of personal training which utilizes the activation of essential areas of the body that are often neglected, such as stabilizing muscles of the hip, upper and lower back and cervical spine.  My clients are taken through proper progression of acute variables in their personal exercise program in order to simultaneously prevent injury, develop functional strength, lose weight, increase balance and coordination, and positively change their ratio of fat to muscle mass.

I emphasize movements in multiple planes of motion through a full muscle action spectrum in an environment that challenges the internal balance and stabilization mechanisms of the body.  Utilizing this method I have been able to take people out of postures which have literally been molded by furniture, gravity, and inactivity to states of better health with diminished or the complete absence of pain. This integrative training is used to optimize performance for the individual with limited exercise experience wanting to lose weight, to the older adult with back pain, to the athlete seeking better results. Training in this way systematically progresses any client, to achieve any personal goal. In addition, they achieve optimum levels of physiologic, physical, and performance adaptations.
