He has just the 'manner' I like--knows how to motivate, when to press harder and when to 'tone' things down, and is patient through the process, knowing that life sometimes gets in the way. But he's with you throughout all the stages, and adapts according to your needs. His talent and strategies for getting you toned are considerable. Plus, he's really a lot of fun to work with. I look forward to my sessions, and feel better each time than when I started. Since he's added nutrition coaching to his services his training services have elevated. Great trainer! Highly recommended!
