The Search

Do you ever feel like you want to get moving and start taking steps in the direction of your goals, but don't know where to start? Maybe you've tried numerous diets, fitness plans, gyms, classes, and programs, but can't seem to find anything that fits your lifestyle, addresses and repairs old injuries or chronic pain, gives you the results you want, or is sustainable and well balanced. 

I have been there too.

When I transitioned from being a collegiate then professional athlete to a working adult and entrepreneur I was constantly looking for the perfect workout system, a roadmap that would help me reach my physique, performance, skill goals, improve movement deficiencies and old injuries I endured during my athletic career, and fit my busy lifestyle. 

I set out on a journey to learn tools and techniques to get back to basics and move towards my goals with a fresh perspective, practicing a new way of being, in order to reach new depths of Self and new levels of personal growth. All this was fuel for the fire to create new fitness gains. 

Through my own self work, experimentation, trial and error, and working with thousands of people over the span of my career as a personal trainer, nutrition consultant, fitness expert in LA, yoga teacher, wellness writer, and coach I have become highly proficient in designing customized programs, because I don't believe there is a single program that works for everyone. We must each blaze our own unique trail. I am here to help guide you on that journey. 

The Journey Ahead

Step 1: Create Your Fit Vision (Goal-setting)

In order to get what you want you have to first know what you want. 

My intention is to help you get clear on your fitness and wellness goals, align your movement, nutrition, and mindset with your intentions. 

Step 2: Igniting the Fire Within (Habit Change + Will Power) 

Habit change is not easy, but when you change your habits for the better you change your body, your character, your relationships, and your life. It may be challenging, but it's also the most rewarding. 

In this phase we work on the basics. The little things that make a BIG difference like your quantity and quality of sleep, food, and water. We also discuss self-care and mindfulness practices, and how to juggle these practices between work, family, etc. 

Step 3: Movement Foundations (Improve Mobility + Build True Strength)

Once the inner fire of motivation and will power is lit and you've burned through lifestyle habits and thoughts that are blocking the path the next step is to build a strong, balanced, and stable body and mind. You must walk before you can run. You must set the foundation before you can build. 

Mobility = Strength + Flexibility 

You need a balance of the two for this quest. 

Step 4: Your Unique Journey (Workouts and Nutrition Designed to Fit Your Goals and Lifestyle)

There's a different way to train and eat for building muscle and losing fat versus performance goals like running a marathon or competing in an iron man triathlon. There are different elements you will need for certain skills like the pistol squat or handstand. There are unique challenges you will face whether you are a busy Mom or Dad or an executive with a full on travel schedule. 

In this phase I take your goals, physical abilities, and lifestyle into account to develop a plan that works for you so you can put in the work. 

Step 5: Practice, Practice, Practice! 

There is absolutely no substitute for practice. This is the law of specificity. If you want to get better at a skill you must practice it (correctly) to induce neurological changes. Through practice you rewire yourself and become your vision. 

Step 6: Evaluate + Progress

Evaluation is key both physically and mentally. Evaluation helps ensure you moving in the right direction and keep your compass pointing north onward towards the summit of your goals. 

We all like to improve and progress, but keep in mind that progress is not always linear. Sometimes there are plateaus, but with patience and awareness you can transcend them. Often times the setbacks and plateaus do not exist in your body, they exist in your mind. For this reason, the mind body connection is something I will bring up again and again. 

Step 7: Maintenance Phase

This is when all systems are firing and running like a well oiled machine. You've developed new habits that support health and vitality, your body is more mobile, stronger, and you're feeling amazing! The key is to keep practicing, progressing, challenging yourself, and tuning into the wisdom of your body.

Achieving one goal is the beginning of the next....there's always another mountain to climb. Enjoy the journey!

WARNING:

This is a no fad, no quick fix method. 

The journey will take awareness, sweat, daily effort, focus, and preparation, but with practice it becomes effortless; transformed from something you once thought you "should" or "have" do to something you can't wait to get up out of bed in the morning and "want" to do.

Throughout the journey you are supplied with tools, practices, accountability, and motivation to overcome challenges. With each obstacle you transcend you build confidence and wisdom so you can continue to tackle even higher summits along the path.
