I wasn't always strong, healthy or happy with my body. After my college soccer career ended, I felt completely lost and needed to find something in my life to give me meaning. I started to go to the gym because the guys in my pickup soccer team were doing it after our games. I quickly became hooked even though I had no idea what I was doing! Working out at the gym sparked a new beginning, in which I wanted to be compete as an athlete, look and feel like a badass forever. That's how I met Pete. I approached Pete to be my strength coach because I had no idea of what to do in the gym unless it resembled a soccer conditioning workout. Since then I've built more strength that I could have ever imagined and more confidence. If I can go from zero confidence, zero pull-ups and only enough strength to hold a pint of ice cream in one hand to bench pressing more than my body weight in a few years, then you can to! I'm here for you as your coach and cheerleader. You got this!
I have been in the fitness/wellness industry since June of 1992. Yes, it is a life long endeavor!
Since that time I have owned and operated three different gyms including three physical and occupational therapy clinics in Westchester County, NY.
I have been previously certified by the ACSM, USA Weightlifting as a Sports Performance Coach and Level 1 Coach and am currently certified as a Special Strengths Coach with Westside Barbell of Columbus, OH.
I have an extensive background in sports beginning at the age of eight having participated in football, baseball and basketball through out high school and played one year of college football. Since that time I have remained in competitive sports by competing in Bodybuilding, Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, CrossFit, HyRox and Track and Field events. I remain very active in training and competing today.
However, since turning 50 in 2019, I have found a new passion within the health and wellness sector, that of longevity and anti-aging especially as it pertains to men’s health.
Outside of fitness my hobbies include vegetable gardening in the summer time, home winemaking in the fall and skiing in winter. But perhaps most of all, I am most proud to be Dad to three beautiful children Camille, Maria and Peter.
