TRAINING APPROACH:

Head to toe, front to back, left to right.
I take a joint-by-joint approach and train the body how it is meant to move, with what tools are at my disposal.
The methods, tweaks and or techniques I weave into a program design vary with each individual and their phase of training.
I incorporate functional training with traditional strength training. I couple it with some good old fashioned bodybuilding tactics then integrate it into a performance program.
I bake individualized, fun programs fresh every morning to keep the clients happy and anxious to come back the next day.
I make the intensity difficult but not impossible.  
I make certain that every second of the workout is accounted for.
I accommodate if multiple daily training sessions are needed or required as the individuals “goal” date draws near.
Design, build and sustain is the template I follow.

 

NUTRTION APPROACH:

 I try to coach the individual on “how to fish”. There’s is an old saying, "If you give a man a fish, you have fed him for today, but if you teach a man how to fish, you have fed him and his family for a lifetime."There is a chaotic ocean of nutritional advice, gimmicks and diets out there. So I let them know where the healthy fish swim and where to drop their hooks. I educate them on the importance of organic or “chemical free” foods. I educate them on the importance of wild or pasture-raised meats. I teach them how farmers markets might be a better option for food shopping. especially when on a budgeted income.
Here are some dietary guidelines that I try to get all my clients, female or male, to incorporate: Eat whole, natural foods. Eat naturally-raised meats including fish, seafood, eggs, poultry, beef, lamb, game and organ meats – yes, organ meat, but only from a healthy, wild, natural source. If you can metabolize and do not have an issue with dairy, raw milk is a great option. If you can't get raw milk in your area, search or demand pasteurized, grass-fed, pasture-raised organic milk. Use only traditional fats and oils, including real butter, extra virgin olive oil, flax and tropical oils, such as coconut. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, in salads and soups or lightly steamed. If you don't have grain or gluten issues, use whole grains and nuts that have been prepared by soaking and sprouting. Prepare homemade meat stocks from the bones of chicken, beef, lamb or fish and use liberally in soups and sauces. This should be the staple of your fridge, especially if you're a "grilled chicken breast" eater. Use unrefined Celtic sea salt and a variety of herbs and spices for food interest and appetite stimulation. Use natural sweeteners in moderation, such as raw honey or maple syrup. Use only natural, whole food-based supplements. Get plenty of sleep, true exercise and natural light. Practice forgiveness. Think about it, your thoughts are so powerful they can effect your digestion. Practice self-discipline! Remember, you control the environment, your environment doesn't control you. Look, smell and give praise to that animal you're about to consume. It gave its life so you and your family can live yours.
