B.A./M.A. Health & Physical Education with concentration in Exercise Science
American College of Sports Medicine, Certified
Health Fitness Specialist, Certified
Pilates Instructor, Certified
As a veteran of the fitness industry for more than 30 years, I've worked in a variety of fitness positions for a number of national fitness companies and private country club organizations. These would include group exercise instructor (aquatics, aerobics, pilates), small group training, partner training, sport-specific training, personal training and fitness director.
After several years, I decided to go my own way and started a personal training business focusing on each client's goals rather than the typical corporate high pressure, revenue-driven goals.
I also strongly believe every dedicated trainer should exude personal integrity demonstrated through the commitment to the goal of empowering all clients to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Geist Fitness’ trainers are experts in their field through their experience, education, certifications and commitment to their profession.
As a baby boomer, my personal philosophy on physical activity and overall wellness program has changed over the decades from being a former collegiate and semi-pro athlete to recreational activities for a more appropriate age-based lifestyle. Together with my wife of 31 years, we enjoy gardening, hiking our western national parks, scenic "cruise biking," and engaging in regular workouts wherever we are traveling.
We also rescue abused golden retrievers and bring them into the studio to mingle with our clients who provide an abundance of love and affection.
It's time to take charge of your life! Remember...EXERCISE IS MEDICINE!
