    in my free time I like to
    Spend time with my daughters and wife in the great San Diego outdoors. We love to go hiking, spend time at the beach and traveling in the U.S. and abroad. I also love surfing, running and weight training. Reading and attending live concerts are also a nice luxury.

    Pain has been a constant variable on my mind ever since elementary school. I suffered from chronic lower back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and ankle pain. This never ending increasing pain led me to aspire to understand as much as I could about the human body from an early age, especially while obtaining my bachelors in Kinesiology. Regardless of what your perfect balance of fitness factors are, I believe the only non-negotiables’ are effort and persistence. I strive to create authentic, meaningful relationships with my clients and view myself as more of a teacher than a trainer. I want you to walk away with the confidence that you can train yourself without the overwhelming struggle required to understand the complex underpinning mechanisms required to make practical decisions. So let me save you years worth of struggle and time and lets create a purposeful results driven program designed 100% for you!

    in my free time I like to
    Be an awesome father and loving husband. I live for quality time with loved ones, going on adventures, hikes, and anything in the great outdoors. I have a deep curiosity and desire to learn as much as possible related to self improvement, life, the human body, philosophy and psychology.

  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.
