Do you want to lose some weight or get back into shape without having to spend a cent on equipment or a gym membership? If you answered yes, then calisthenics classes are the perfect solution! All ages and fitness levels are welcome and encouraged.

We can train at a park of your choice in Lake City, SC or the greater Pee Dee area of South Carolina. If you are not sure what park to choose, I prefer the following due to the equipment available at each, and the convenience of their locations: Lions Park in Lake City SC, McCleod Park and Brooks-McCall Park in Florence SC. Other locations in these areas are negotiable (such as gyms or studios that bring in independent contractors). We can also train at the Lake City Fitness Center, located at 148 Sauls St, Lake City SC. There is bodyweight training equipment available, as well as machines and free weights.

Schedule your FREE initial consultation today! When we meet, we can discuss your training goals, current fitness level, and any questions you have.

I am a qualified and experienced calisthenics instructor. I teach strength training routines that will melt the calories away and are tailored to your individual needs and goals. As a personal trainer, I also take proper form and technique very seriously to ensure that you not only get the best workout possible but also learn some cool athletic skills. Seeing a new skill click with a trainee and helping him/her meet his/her fitness goals are always the most satisfying parts of the job!

Calisthenics classes can also address a variety of other needs. We can arrange low-impact sessions especially if you are coming back from an injury or medical condition. We can also address general mobility and joint health. Lastly, I can help with stress relief through practice of mindfulness and moving meditation in every exercise.

"What is progressive calisthenics all about?"

I teach minimalist, body-weight-only movements and athletics. Progressive calisthenics can be very intense and effective. It also doesn't require you to spend a single cent on equipment or gym memberships. Your body is the only machine you need! Not only can it be healthy and beneficial, but it can also be done almost anywhere with some creativity and knowledge of the principles of progression.

The learning process is what I enjoy the most, and I try my very best to share this process with each client. There is a wide world of techniques, goals, and exercises. Every person is different and has different goals. As such, I try to take the journey with them. I love being able to help someone become a better version of himself/herself!

I have worked with many types of athletes, including professional boxers, amateur wrestlers, karate students, and gymnasts of varying levels of ability. I also have experience working with clients with different experience levels and goals, from total beginner to fitness enthusiasts looking to learn something new. It is rewarding to work with such a wide variety of people and learning styles!

Contact me today to schedule your FREE initial consultation!

At our initial meeting, we can discuss your situation, goals, and how I can help. We can also discuss your current fitness levels so that we can create a customized training plan. Once we start training, we will cover basic movement patterns and postures.

"What are your qualifications and experience?"

About Me

I am a highly qualified and enthusiastic fitness professional. I am experienced in developing physical fitness programs and am dedicated to keeping up with trends and developments in the fitness industry. I ensure that all workouts utilize proper techniques and the appropriate training intensity.

My passion for fitness started at about the same time I began actively training in the martial arts (June 2002). I trained with many athletes over the years, and learned about many types of strength and conditioning, but progressive calisthenics became my primary passion. I finally became certified as a personal trainer in March 2013. I became a PCC instructor in 2014, after attending the progressive calisthenics certification workshop in Alexandria, VA. I have served as the strength and conditioning coach at Olympia Gymnastics in Moncks Corner, SC since April 2014.

Sweat gets in the eyes
And you wonder if you have any reps left!
Do them anyway!
Don't leave anything unanswered.
Dedicate yourself to this one moment!
Do what you came to do!
Press forward and
Say at the end,
Job well done.
Thank the pain and sacrifice
For the gains you'll make.
This is for life as it is for training.

In the first 26 minutes of Insidious chapter 3 I have already been creeped out 6 times. This is a good sign. Most sequels don't do the original justice.

Introduction

I am a personal trainer with over 10 years of teaching experience. My passion for fitness started at about the same time I began actively training in the martial arts (June 2002). I trained with many athletes over the years, and learned about many types of strength and conditioning, but progressive calisthenics became my primary passion. I finally became certified as a personal trainer in March 2013. I became a PCC instructor in 2014, after attending the progressive calisthenics certification workshop in Alexandria, VA. I have served as the strength and conditioning coach at Olympia Gymnastics since April 2014. I became certified as a gymnastics instructor through USA Gymnastics in August 2014.

I began my martial arts journey on June 10th, 2002, when I enrolled at Nippon Kokusai Karate Center (NKKC) in Lake City, SC. I took over management of this location in January 2004, and obtained the rank of shodan (first degree black belt) in October 2004. NKKC is affiliated with Japan International Karate Center (JIKC). JIKC was founded by the late Hirano Kiyohisa-soke. In late April 2005, I split from NKKC and founded Johnston Karate. I gradually developed and taught my own formulation of karate for 10 years. I also trained at other JIKC over the years dojo as time allowed. I trained at a boxing gym in Sumter, SC, for about 3 years, and for a year and a half in Brazilian Jiujitsu, in Conway, SC.

Clean, well staffed, some variety of classes. Everyone is friendly and there is something for all athletes, ages, and needs. If you're a personal trainer who wants to bring in clients, the center will work something out with you.

Great service at a great price. My parents and I got 3 full meals with beverages for 21.03. Dad's shrimp fried rice came with onions, carrots and peas - delicious! Mom's beef with Chinese vegetables are well cooked and also delicious. My steamed mixed vegetables were prepared to perfection. The portions are good. This eatery was worth coming a bit further off the interstate for.

Wonderful restaurant with great portion sizes, a chill and comfortable atmosphere, and great prices. The food is always well seasoned when it should be, and always tastes fresh. The staff is always warm and treats you like family. The drinks and food come out quickly. Everyone at the restaurant is helpful, accommodating and warm even when you have a big group coming in. There is a spacious private room in the back, and the booths also feel very private and chill. The decor is welcoming, warm, and appropriate. The owner is a wonderful guy and a good friend. The kitchen staff is always happy to customize orders, and the restaurant is always sparkling clean from top to bottom. I can't possibly like any other restaurant in Lake City more than this one!

It's a great place to hang out, get in a good workout, take a class, or watch exciting softball games. I like to run or walk over to the park sometimes and enjoy the safe, peaceful atmosphere while I get some exercise or just chill out.

This company won't stop calling me after I clearly said I don't need their services. The first thing that tipped me off to their service as being a total scam was that the person on the other end asked me if I knew that my website was missing 95% of factors necessary for proper SEO. They had called and asked me that before about another website of mine. Apparently, it's a lie they tell everyone to try to get them interested in services. Besides, I've been working on my own sites for many, many years now so I know a few things about implementing proper SEO - which is why that number set of my "BS alarm". Don't believe a word they tell you.

The service is fine, but there is very little variety on the menu and salad bar. The food takes far too long to come out. There should be healthier alternatives to French fries offered as sides.
