I would like to thank Pam, Olga, Merry, Eshwar, and Tracey for taking the time and being the first to share their thoughts on their experience with me as a trainer so far. Hopefully, I’ll be adding more on a regular basis on my quest to becoming one of the best personal trainers in Charlotte NC!

I also plan on adding a Equipment section which can be seen under “The Studio” ...

Pictures worth a thousand words

Posted by:

Over the past few days I came across some interesting photos on Facebook and thought I would share.

Body scan of 250 lb woman and 120 lb woman. If this isn’t motivation to work out, I don’t know what is! I’m NOT implying that a women needs to weigh 120 lbs…that’s no where near realistic for some people…but it ...

All of the lights, All of the lights!

Posted by:

I recently became a “Corrective Exercise Specialist” and the course I went through was by far the most difficult I’ve experienced this far.

This is a great exercise to routinely monitor the progress of ...

The foot/ankle complex, the knee, hip, core, shoulders, and neck all work synergistically, and if any of these are not operating properly that is when compensations, muscle imbalance, pain, and eventually injury may occur. As a personal trainer, it is my job to identify those issues and correct them (currently studying for ...
