I do not endorse “supplements” but simply a diet rich in low glycemic index micro-nutrient dense (colorful as possible, fresh and as unprocessed* as possible) vegetables and the low sugar fruits. To progress my clients I help them employ this with enough rest to hit very intense work-outs while feeling comfortable executing new exercises in an intense manner. By meticulously queing, guiding and attentive spotting I teach people how to push themselves as much as anything. I believe in living life to fullest and doing it in a strong, elastic body that allows me to feel confident I can accomplish what I earnestly put my mind to. Being physical, being in tune with your body is one approach to improving the psychology you bring to everything you do. Bring me your desire and I will deliver you the body of your dreams.

* = minimally cooked, skinned or chopped (chopping increases surface area and hence exposure to oxygen and its damaging effects it has on oxidizable nutrients). Take home message: Don’t pre-chop your fruits and veges. Eat things as close as you can to the state they come from nature.
