Functional Personal Training


What does PENTA stand for ?

Play  •  Exercise  •  Nutrition  •  Thought  •  Altruism


Happy people find opportunities to play no matter how old they are. This doesn’t necessarily mean playing a sport or a game. Just be playful and find the joy and humor around you. Play “therapy” is not just for kids and having fun helps you be in the present moment and make the most of your life.


Strength training has had a huge impact on quality of life for myself and my clients. Consistent, appropriate exercise creates strong, lean, and functional bodies. I do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to fitness, but will tailor a program to your specific needs and goals.


The foods and fluids you put into your body should be seen as fuel. New research continues to show how important nutrition is to both your body and mind. You must choose foods to maximize nutrients and minimize junk. If you want to be lean and healthy, the simple calories in/calories out model is not enough.


The brain may not be a muscle, but the effect it can have on your body is incredible. I believe strongly that your body can change through the influence of your brain alone. Your results will reflect the attention you give (both physically and mentally) to your health and fitness.


People feel good when they volunteer their time or give money to causes they believe in. Giving back to your community increases the social connectedness that is lacking in the high-tech age we live in. I hope to create a sense of community through my business and have committed to volunteering my time to support causes I believe in.
