I started Impack Total Fitness January, 1st 1998 while living in Washington, DC.. I now reside in sunny Miami, Florida working primarily out of The Downtown Athletic Club. I also travel to a handful of in-home clients as well as writing programs for my online distance coaching clients. Well my goals were the same back in DC as they are here in Miami, “Get Results”. How do I get results? First of all I study other people who get results. I am also currently in school pursuing my degree in Exercise Science at Florida International University. School has been great but I must say that I’ve recieved more education outside of my schooling. Mike Boyle once said,”don’t let school get in the way of your education”, and I can honestly say that I havn’t. Aside from Mike Boyle, Dr. Mel Siff, Charles Poliquin, Paul Chek, Carlos Santana, Dr. John Berardi, Dr. Eric Serrano, Dr. Mauro Di Pasquale and Lyle Mcdonald, Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson are just a couple of coaches that have helped mold me. All of these individuals have instilled great knowledge in me to help the people I come in contact with on a daily basis. So my mentors, seminars, workshops, internships and countless hours of training myself have enabled me to help my clients get results.

What else does it take?

It takes The THREE D’s, Desire, Discipline and Determination. The three D’s and a lot of commitment is the key to long-term results, health and longevity. I would consider myself to be somewhat of a holistic strength coach.

What do we mean by Holistic?

To be holistic means a well rounded approach. There are steps one must incorporate into a lifestyle in order to achieve Total Health and Fitness. Without proper nutrition, water intake, weight training, cardiovascular conditioning, stress management and sleep being instituted in your fitness program the results will be less than optimal. There is always a missing link. Whether it’s meal frequency, food quality, nutrient timing, lack of quality sleep or simply a poorly structured exercise program I will help troubleshoot the issue and set you on the path to ultimate health.

The difference between me and other trainers and strength coaches is not only the countless hours training my clients, but also the many hours training myself. Nothing makes me more frustrated than someone teaching an exercise to someone and has never done the exercise themselves. I have been underneath the weight, felt the pain, fatigue and sweat. I know what it’s like to work hard and know what it takes to get RESULTS. So, whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior or housewife, my objectives stay the same. Use the 3 D’s along with proper Nutrition, adequate water intake, Stress management, resistance training, conditioning and sleep. Follow My advice and results are right around the corner, are you ready to go get em’?
