I am a Beverly Hills-based personal trainer whose clients include celebrities, professional athletes, and everyday people. I work with each client on an individual basis, focusing on achieving long-term results through challenging and constantly varied workouts. I am widely recognized for my expertise in functional training and my commitment to developing and implementing innovative fitness techniques. With more than 18 years in the fitness industry, my dynamic approach, boundless energy and humor only add to the effectiveness of the experience my clients enjoy.
With a client list as diverse as my training methods, I emphasize strength training modalities that can be transferred from the gym to daily life, from training camp to championship. I have worked with athletes from the NBA, NHL, NFL, USTA, professional boxing and various NCAA sports. Many film and television celebrities have also sought my guidance in preparing for roles and have stayed on to become devoted clients, making me a part of their regular fitness regimen.
My innovative approach and my devotion to pursuing and communicating only the most credible and effective fitness information have resulted in several corporate partnerships and business opportunities. I currently enjoy relationships with Adidas, The Gatorade Company for Propel, LPG, ACI Licensing and others. I have partnered with Guthy-Renker to develop and produce “Core Secrets,” a fitness system featuring full-body and body-part specific workouts that focus on strengthening the core of the body. I released my first book, G-Force, in January 2005 (Regan Books). Now out in paperback as The Workout, the book is about training, making it a part of your life, creating and maintaining a positive mindset, and improvising to keep workouts effective and interesting. Through my own fitness product development company, Outside Shot, I have created The Bottom Line™, a total body exercise machine, The RAC ™, an accessory that incorporates weighted upper body work with Spinning ®, and Hoop Hands ™, a basketball-specific resistance training aid.
I am certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the American Council on Exercise, and I am a graduate of Duke University. I am an editor and write a monthly column for Muscle and Fitness, am on the advisory board for Fitness magazine, have been a contributing editor for Glamour, and have a recurring feature in L.A Confidential magazine. I am also regularly featured in Allure, Elle, In Style, In Touch, US Weekly, Men's Health, Women’s Health, Self, Fitness and other magazines. My television appearances include The Today Show, CNN, CNN Headline News, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Extra, and shows for E! and VH1.
