Education and Certifications

M.S. Exercise and Sports Science, Merrimack College;
Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS), National Strength & Conditioning Association

Specialties

Strength & Power Training, Hypertrophy, Plyometrics, Functional Training, Weight Loss

Training Philosophy

With exercise prescription, I believe variety is the spice of life. The human body is amazing in the way it adapts to its surrounding environment. Exercise puts an amazing amount of stress on the body, and over time the body learns to handle that same stress. Exercise should never be too easy; if it is, something must change. If it is too easy, there is no stress on the body, and there will be no adaptation. The best trainers implement constant progressions and variations in exercise and intensity. Through proper guidance in exercise structure and variation, we can continuously progress our performance and health.
