Natalie and I became certified personal trainers in 1996, and shortly thereafter we opened our first gym in Burbank California. It was there where I began to invest in people who needed guidance where health and fitness are concerned. I spent more than 16 years working with people of all ages and all walks of life. I have helped 14-year-olds develop a love for the gym, I have helped seniors in their 90s to safely push their bodies to maintain physical health, and I have worked with all ages in between. I have helped top athletes maintain strength and flexibility while working through severe injuries, and I have trained pregnant mothers to safely work in the gym to ensure the best health for themselves and their yet-unborn child. I can confidently say that whatever background you come from, I have the tools to help you develop a plan and work through your journey!
I brought this gym to Acton in order to establish a center for fitness in a convenient location for many people in the area. I collaborate with other fitness experts to bring a wide variety of options to the gym, and to provide the best experience I can for each of my clients and my members. I am contstantly watching and listening to my clients in order to determine what this facility could be lacking. If we determine that something is missing, we work quickly to obtain it, if possible. One of my many goals is to have a local fitness center that provides the complete gym-experience that my members desire.
Another goal of mine is to educate my members. My wife and I have collaborated on a book that we believe sets a foundation for those interested in nutrition to achieve a healthier lifestyle, check out Fitness Fraud here. Naturally, the things I teach would include education in the essentials like form and technique, and nutrition. But I also strive to teach clients how to set goals for themselves, how to program their workouts to achieve these goals, and how to descern the truth about fitness from the many 'get-fit-quick' lies that are so popular. I am not interested in popularity and collaboration with fitness giants, I am interested in providing the best experience possible for my clients, and above all else - results! This is what you get when you come to Acton Fitness - a highly experienced personal trainer who is only interested in your success, in the best environment that I can provide!
