Want a strong core? - Combine parallettes and Surge! Come workout with us & we'll show you how!

#gym   #oldtownalexandria   #personaltrainer  
If you own a pair of parallettes, you’ve probably discovered that they are an excellent source of instability for your shoulders, and your feet if you stand on them.  When you loop in a Surge (a water filled tube with handles), then you have instability in your core and shoulders as the water sloshes around. … Continue reading Parallette and Surge Intermediate Movements and Progressions

Back when I was sandbagging the levee on the Mississippi during the flood of 1973, who knew I was that far ahead of the trend?

Story

Perfect Form. Powerhouse Nutrition.
Introduction

My ultimate goal is simple: I want to help people lead a happy and healthy life. 

My training and nutrition programs are progressively designed to ease your body and mind into the new routines and put you on the path to life-long success.

My personal journey to health changed my life. Having spent years living with chronic fatigue and pain from fibromyalgia, I was able to put this illness in remission through improved diet and exercise. Freed from the shackles of pain and inflammation caused by this disease, I knew I wanted to help others get better as well. That’s when I decided to become a personal trainer, so I can teach others about nutrition, fitness and proper exercise form. While Paul may have been lifting weights for all his life, I still remember lifting my first barbell, doing my pullup. I know what it’s like to think that you can’t get better, and I’m going to help you remove the word can’t from your life.

Women can’t do pullups and pushups? Women can’t toss a 50 pound bag of sand? YES, you can! We all have the ability to mold our bodies to the shape that we dream. With a few healthy lifestyle changes and the proper training you can be on your way to a healthier, happier you. Show commitment, train hard, eat clean, own the results!

Bragging rights
I beat Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue with food & weight lifting!
