About Me

I do my best to balance professionalism with fun. It goes without saying I'm going to push you past your comfort zone but I'll never make you do something unless I'm certain you can do it. You'll realize quickly that I know your limits better than you do.

I understand what it's like to be human. As soon as I finish one meal, I'm thinking about the next. I strive for a manageable lifestyle. A life worth living with a body worth living about.

My clients know me for my clear direction and insightful advice. During the workout, I'll give you instructions that are easy to follow with the support and motivation to crush each session. You'll leave with tips that will allow you to make conscious decisions outside of the gym.

Our growing softness, our increasing lack of physical fitness, is a menace to our security. John F. Kennedy

Client Success Story

A 50-year-old male weighing in at 230 lbs with bad knees and shoulders along with a lack of muscle mass began working out with me after he received scary results from a health check up. It's been 14 months and he's under 200 lbs with more lean muscle than ever. He can easily lift his own bodyweight and has energy to spare. His new lifestyle not only affected himself but his family and friends as well. Our lessons keep him on track which helps him stay focused outside of our sessions.

Client Feedback

Great workouts and exceptional motivatior

Eileen E. - February 29, 2016

Greg is very knowledgeable about all things fitness and is always able to answer my questions and provide me with useful advice. He was able to create an exercise plan that fits both my schedule and my abilities. I've already lost several pounds and feel much better about myself since working with Greg. Five stars!!

Jenna Y. - February 27, 2016

I had a few training sessions with Greg just before he left the city and he was able to set me up with a tailor made routine geared towards my workout goals and schedule. In addition, the gym sessions where he was able to check my form were extremely useful since I have been going to the gym for years and unknowingly, I had adopted some bad habits. Greg was able to correct my form and motivate me to push through those last few reps in a safe manner.
Greg was also able to provide a detailed list for food suggestions and help determine what my macro breakdown should be for my goals.
Months later, I have been able to keep the motivation to continue my workout routines as I continue to see changes in my body. I am seeing better muscle definition and an increase in strength.
I would highly recommend Greg as a personal trainer if you're looking to get out of a rut of a routine and need some variety or even if you're just starting out and need motivation and someone to check your form.

Greg has been the best trainer I have ever worked with. I started following Greg's routines with building strength and mass as goals. He was able to custom make a routine and diet that allowed me to make noticeable gains in the weight room and in the mirror, without having to make too many sacrifices. He will keep you motivated and on course, and is an all around great guy. I would definitely recommend Greg to any other person looking for a trainer.

Ryan - January 29, 2016

My sessions with Greg started with an initial consultation of my short term and long term goals. I had already begun a diet routine which was proving weight loss results and Greg was able to help me take the next step by introducing me to an introductory exercise regimen to keep my progress moving forward. With Greg's guidance, I was able to move from my initial 15lbs weight loss to 37lbs down so far. And Greg's tips helped me maintain this loss through the difficult holiday season, when I'd typically give back all the progress I've made.

I recommend Greg to anyone looking to get started and even to those that are already fit who perhaps just need so help with the finer aspects of fitness. You won't be disappointed.
