My training philosophy emphasizes all-around wellness: from the food you eat, to the way you move, to your daily lifestyle habits. Becoming and staying healthy is key to flourishing in life, and to stay in optimal condition, it is always best to train safely, effectively, and efficiently.
Our lives evolve around movement: crawl, walk, run, push, pull, twist, bend, squat, lunge. These are basic movements that we all execute to one degree or another in the patterns of our daily routines.
If practiced correctly, these basic movements can help you toward the goal of optimal health. I take great pleasure and responsibility in teaching these movement dynamics, especially how foundational and imperative functional core training are in supporting all movement, in supporting our lives.
