arrow Integrated Motivational Fitness Approach:

    I use a behavior modification approach, which promotes healthy lifestyle transformation. IMF training techniques utilize eastern and western training principles (martial arts, Yoga postures, Pilate's movements, core training, meditation, and breathing practices) to facilitate a true mind/ body connection, which provides lasting change in ones body and mental approach to health, wellness and nutrition.

Interview

dots
[ Q ] When and why did you become a trainer?
dots

    I have been training clients for over 20 years. I became a personal trainer because I needed a career that would allow me to partake in activities that I was passionate about, be my own boss, provide for unlimited income potential and flexible hours. Training gave me all of those stipulations.

dots
[ Q ] What is your training style? What methods do you use?
dots

    My training style is across the board. My philosophy is to do whatever it takes to help my clients achieve their goals. I utilize a combination of Eastern and Western disciplines to facilitate a complete mind-body approach. Interval training, plyometrics, Yoga postures, 4 types of martial arts, boxing, navy seal training methods, boot camp style workouts, bodybuilding techniques, meditation if necessary.

dots
[ Q ] Do you have examples of success stories from clients using your methods?
dots

    Numerous examples. 90% of my clients achieve their goals if they listen to me.

    More in my book.

dots
[ Q ] Who are some of your present/past celebrity clients?

dots
[ Q ] Can you please you give me an example diet and training program you put together for your clients.

[ Q ] What are the most common mistakes a client makes?
dots

    They don't listen to me and try to do it their way.

    They push too hard too fast and get burned out.

    They never really fully commit to the process.

[ Q ] What are the most common mistakes you believe a trainer makes?
dots

dots
[ Q ] Do you set your clients up with a full diet and training plan for them to follow by themselves?
dots

    Yes, I do provide my clients homework.

dots
[ Q ] How do you keep your clients motivated?
dots

    I listen to them. I figure out what type of person they are and what motivates them and what pushes their buttons. Then I lead them where I want them to go. Basic NLP training.

dots
[ Q ] Do you train a male client differently to a female?
dots

    Yes, they are 2 different body types so I train them very differently after the foundation building phase.

dots
[ Q ] How have your changed your approach to clients over the years of experience?
dots

dots
[ Q ] How do you start a client on a new program? Do you do some kind of assessment?
dots

    I do a complete fitness assessment.

dots
[ Q ] Do you prefer to train male or female clients and why?
dots

    I enjoy training both because every client is unique and challenging in their own way.

dots
[ Q ] Do you feel just as much like a psychologist as you do a personal trainer?
dots

    Not really. I think of myself as more of a coach. A coach is interested in every facet of a client's life, however, he never oversteps his boundaries. I listen to clients personal issues more as an extra ear than advice giver. Sometimes I do offer suggestions if asked, but I always keep in mind that any suggestions I provide clients are in the interest of stronger healthy lifestyle practices. I don't get into details and personal life issues.
