“My training philosophy is based on integrating elements of core stability, flexibility, balance, cardiovascular conditioning, strength and muscular endurance. Using these resistance training techniques enables an individual to progress to a greater state of health and wellness as well as to alter their muscle/fat body composition ratio and to reshape their bodies. Feel great, look great!”

I am, originally from Lima, Peru and grew up in Miami, Fl. I then relocated to the Northern Virginia area. I have been a fitness instructor for over twenty years and I’ve competed in bodybuilding in the 90’s. My philosophy on personal training is focused on two things; the uniqueness of each individual and the positive health and fitness improvements of the individual’s total lifestyle. Every person is diverse. That is a very important factor in a personal trainer’s ability in getting the client to accomplish their optimal levels of success. What works for one individual doesn’t mean it will work well for another. I will find out what works best for you!…No pain, no gain…
