ABOUT ME

In addition to strength and conditioning, I have been a rowing and sculling coach for over 15 years.  It is important that I stay current on the latest research in exercise physiology, and I have earned quite a few certifications. However, I have not forgotten the great influences in my life, and I honor the training philosophies of the fitness mentors and rowing coaches that have taught me.
