MY TRAINING PHILOSOPHY


I believe in a balanced training program: one that includes weight training, cardiovascular training, flexibility training, and proper nutrition.  Training should be SAFE and FUN.

My client’s goals are always the priority.

Fitness training should be simple and include exercises that are functional and sport specific.  I believe in back-to-basics.

I use muscle testing and ROM (range of motion) testing to find out more information about a client’s body before designing an exercise program for them.

WILDERNESS ADVENTURE HIKING

(see credentials page for outdoor credentials)

 

I  lead hikes in the Angeles National Forest (San Gabriel Mountains) and Los Padres National Forest.  The hikes are all in canyons along a river.  They are of intermediate difficulty level and involve rock scrambling and lots of stream crossings.  Usually an all-day event, lasting five to twelve hours.   Not for beginners or anyone without a sense of adventure! 

Great for endurance, strength, balance, fat-burning, and plyometric training!  Learn about nature and
things like “the ten essentials” and “Leave no Trace”.  Excellent for cross training or taking your training to a new level!!!

(Until further notice, these hikes are FREE!!!!!!!)
