I’ve been a certified personal trainer and licensed massage therapist for two decades in NYC.
I’m from Miami, went to India a few times to study yoga and and was strict vegetarian for almost twenty years. I moved to NYC in the 90’s and developed a health/fitness career. I help people get stronger, move better, and most importantly reduce pain & stress. I work with individual clients of all ages, with a variety of goals and occasionally teach workshops. I use exercise as medicine, and think an individual’s health can not be separated from context.
I’ve been online for awhile with a blog, e-book and podcast on culture, science, nutrition, public health and diet culture. I’m supposed to say something here like “self-help” or an inspirational quotes so here you go: ‘bio-hacking’ is dieting.
Throughout my career I’ve been certified by leading organizations, had apprenticeships, specialized training, clinical experience and continuing education. I don’t do cult of personality. My best learning experiences have come from working with my clients.
I did ‘holistic health’ coaching and functional medicine years ago before it was cool. I’ve grown skeptical over the years and this is an area few people understand. These days I eat everything and despise diet culture.
I was Vegetarian for 18 years and Paleo for a decade, then one day I discovered McGriddles
My work includes fitness & mobility coaching: movement therapy/restorative fitness, strength training.
I help people reduce pain, move better, get stronger, enhance performance and improve health. Sometimes I help people recover from years of dieting, because diet culture is trash.
