“…I am a Paleo (“Caveman Diet”) Coach. I have helped many transform their bodies with my training and Paleo coaching. I’ve been mentored in Paleo from the best and pass along my unique blend of knowledge and experience on to those I collaborate with. And as a model of my commitment to Paleo, I competed in my last bodybuilding competition on a Paleo competition diet and won! My next challenge is to pursue my pro card in natural bodybuilding, and doing so as an athlete representing the Paleo solution.
As a personal trainer, my philosophy is to get results fast! I don’t believe in exercises that “look cool” but are actually less effective, let alone dangerous for novices. With much experimentation and experience, I know what the body can do (naturally) and how to manipulate diet and exercise to achieve the desired results. There is no obstacle or stage my clients will go through that I haven’t myself! I suppose my background in education and coaching innately pushes me to teach clients what do, and more importantly, why.”
