IMG_9519Does any of this sound familiar? You’ve been trying to lose weight, but feel like it’s a lost cause. You’ve been dreaming of looking and feeling better in your clothes, but you’re feeling worse. You want to get in shape, but you’re doing a better job of staying “out of shape.”

And it’s not that you’ve haven’t tried a lot of different things!

So by this point, you’re probably frustrated and you simply don’t know where to start, what to believe, or who to trust anymore. These are common challenges most of us face, at one time or another. For the past 12 years, I’ve helped people from all walks of life and of all ages achieve their fitness goals. For some, that’s developing the core strength to let their kids climb on their backs. For others, it’s feeling comfortable wearing a bathing suit at the poolside. And for others, it’s being able to compete in sports at an elite level.

As a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Navy’s submarine service, one of my duties was to help the crew prepare for their annual “physical readiness test.” I found this work so rewarding that I became a certified personal trainer. As part of my training, I worked with some of the country’s best strength and conditioning coaches at the University of Washington.

In my experience, regardless of what you’ve tried in the past, the key is to combine your commitment with a customized approach that matches situation and lifestyle, and reliably supports you in achieving your goals.

We just opened our new training studio and are expanding our classes and services. Cookie-cutter “blueprints” just don’t work here. Neither do fads, gadgets, or gizmos. Instead, we emphasize fundamentals, variety, and functional training activities that directly translate to your sport and fitness goals. But the most important ingredient we’ve found is making sure my clients have a lot of fun! Because even if you’re working hard, if you’re having fun, you’ll keep on doing it. And if you keep working out, you’re guaranteed to get results that make it worth your effort. (We even have a fun and reliable way to reduce cellulite and tone your waist, hips, and thighs in record-time!)

We’ve lost count of the number of clients who have told me they have so much fun working out, that they forget they are exercising. Yet, when it comes to fitness and your health, there are no substitutes for effort, diligence, and consistency.  As the late, great Jack Lalanne once said, “Exercise is king. Diet is queen. Put them together you and have a kingdom.”

Whether you are just trying to improve your quality of life or you’re an athlete looking to improve your athletic performance, if you’re ready to take your expand level of fitness and performance and have a lot of fun along the way, let us know that you’re ready to be transformed.
