I started my fitness career in Boston over 20 years ago. After earning a BA from the College of the Holy Cross and completing their pre-med program, I worked in the Boston hospitals for a few years. Shortly after, I discovered that my passion was in fitness and that I could make an immense impact on the health and well-being of my clients through this practice. Movement and exercise became my prescription for clients and I dedicated my career to this mission.
I continued to challenge myself personally by competing in both powerlifting and bodybuilding, earning championships and professional titles respectively in each sport. Understanding that there was always room for me to become a better coach for my clients, I committed myself to learn supplemental training techniques and approaches… and applying them to my clients’ programming. Possessing a bigger bag of tools to pull from allowed me to explore fitness through a more holistic lens. Some of the tools include wrestling, BJJ, boxing, Shaolin kung fu, prenatal/postpartum, nutrition, ONNIT foundations, MovNat, etc.
Fitness is an ever-evolving industry and moves in a cyclical process; you see a lot of “new” things that are actually recycled and rooted in older and sometimes ancient training systems. Some examples are the Gada (aka steel mace) and Indian clubs. There are so many different modalities out there, not one is better than the other…you just have to discover what is best for you; mix, match, and combine to evolve your own practice of fitness. If you need help, that’s why we are here.
