Many of my athletes tell me that their hips always feel tight, so I decided to do a little research on this and read up on the relationship between hip mobility and how it affects performance and other areas of the body. I always notice that whenever I “warm up” my hips I tend to feel better during my...

Have you ever had a crappy workout and you just don't know why? Have you ever felt like you were working way too hard during your workout and just not feeling the love? Have you ever gone to the gym to lift weights and the 10 pound weight felt like 20?

Got it!. Been there!

I've been a trainer since 2009...

So many athletes ask me how to get stronger and faster on the bike.  I always tell them that they have to change the way they do things. Every ride must have a purpose. Lots and lots of miles will make you a great endurance cyclist, but to become stronger and to be able to climb hills faster, you need...

I've always thought of the Aqua Jogger as a rehab tool for injured runners or athletes as a way to recover from injury and build back their strength. I had always seen people using them in the pool at my local YMCA, sometimes attached to a bungee cord for added resistance. Sometimes people will put the...

If you've ever had one done, it usually involves the use of a treadmill, track, or open area where you can be videoed from the front, side, and from the back. Most of what I have learned about running gait analysis is from Ironman Univer...

Ok I speak HONESTLY and from the heart.

Many of you who follow my personal page or my business page know that I have been struggling with injury the past year or so. I could write an entire book about this honestly, but I will try to keep this as brief as I can.

A few years ago I thought about completely...

For almost every run workout for my athletes I incorporate running form drills to improve speed, agility, technique, and run form. Running drills not only improve coordination and form, but they can strengthen functionally weak area's of an athlete's run. 

I like to warm up my athletes with a half mile...

As athletes we can be extremely hard on our body. Whether you are a body builder, a runner, a soccer player, or a triathlete you are constantly pushing your musculoskeletal system to it's limits.

Competing in your sport brings you an incredible amount of joy and fulfillment, and the thought of having to...
