I'm not a fan of the mainstream fitness industry. Charlatans who push gimmicks and promise quick fixes combined with sensationalist marketing claims are everywhere. Not only that but disregarding context, black and white thinking, and unethical practices only compound the problem. After being around this industry for years,  I am passionate and driven to help people wade through the muck and make progress with ethical, transparent, and evidence based methodologies.


My Mission

To help people reach their health & fitness goals by developing an evidence based, enjoyable, realistic, and sustainable approach to nutrition, training, and all things in between.
