Training Philosophy

My training philosophy is based on using the science of the body to achieve maximum results. The reason I know this works is that I have done it the right way and the wrong way. Although I have always enjoyed sports it wasn't until 2001 that I started a weight lifting program. I trained hard and did it under the mentality that "more is better" without understanding how the body truly works. In 2007, I was introduced and trained in the Optimum Performance Training model used by the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Until now, most training programs have been based almost entirely on the experiences and goals of bodybuilders, coaches, and athletes. Scientifically unsupported training programs are not designed to meet the needs of our increasingly de-conditioned and injury-prone society.

NASM's exclusive Optimum Performance Training (OPT) method represents the industry's first and only comprehensive training program based on current scientific research that provides undisputed results specific to individual needs and goals. It eliminates the guesswork when creating training plans by incorporating multiple types of training — flexibility, cardio respiratory, core, balance, reactive, speed, agility, quickness, and strength — into every program.

By incorporating multiple types of training in a simple step program:

  • Flexibility

  • Cardio Respiratory

  • Core

  • Balance

  • Reactive

  • Speed

  • Agility

  • Quickness and Strength

The revolutionary and easy-to-use OPT method improves all biomotor abilities and builds high levels of functional strength, with neuromuscular efficiency and dynamic flexibility.
