I think we are most successful in an atmosphere of high energy because energy feeds performance and performance feeds the body and the mind. My classes are very high energy with acute attention to clients’ form. When we exercise, how we do it matters more than what we do. Form is critical to developing proper technique and strength so clients can perform the exercises correctly to maximize gains and avoid injury.
Why I love coaching at The Fitness Asylum:
Not to sound too cliche, but the people in the FA community are bar none and that is one of the reasons I love coaching here. It’s refreshing to be around people who aren’t afraid to be vulnerable and ask for help, aren’t afraid to take risks, and aren’t afraid to be themselves. I think we stand out in the fitness industry because of this unparalleled community of people. I also love the flexibility to build sets for clients with my own creative intention and I love learning from the other trainers here at FA.

Favorite music to workout to:
Love it all, as long as the beat is great…even country 🙂
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” (Dr. King)
Favorite Clean Eats:
I try not to overthink food. I love food, and love flavor (I mean I am Italian). I try to eat whole foods, make an effort to stay away from foods that aren’t food, and stay grounded in the process. I don’t really have a favorite, I like it all.
Favorite not so Clean Eats:
Peanut m&ms, only peanuts, ALL DAY, ALL WEEK
Although I am vertically challenged, I played college basketball.
I used to teach High School Algebra in an all boys lock down facility (essentially a boys prison) in Roslindale, MA. and as a result have a vast understanding of street gangs.
