I am a graduate of Resistance University and the Cooper Institute for Aerobic Research. Since 1996, I have been training clients of all ages and fitness levels. I have worked with teen athletes, senior citizens, executives, post rehab patients, and those with special needs, such as cerebral palsy. I am a passionate student of exercise, and I use only the most effective and scientific methods available. Client obstacles are viewed as welcomed challenges, and they will be overcome.
In 1989, I was the victim of a violent street attack. After that incident, I realized that each person is responsible for their own safety. I started studying at a kung fu school and assisted teaching self defense programs to men, women and children. In 1999, I met my current teacher Glenn Fiore, who introduced me to his self defense system called IAM Defense, or Instinctive Actions Movements Defense. This efficient method brings out a student’s natural instincts and movements to stop all forms of attack, with nothing to memorize. I became certified to teach IAM Defense in 2001, and have been sharing this invaluable art with clients and students ever since.
