    Really a fantastic trainer -- knowledgable, experienced, motivational, and a total mensch. I was fortunate to work with Brian for about 8 months at Stanford, and it was a great investment of time and money. I suppose the first measure of any trainer is what he/she does for him/herself. Well, Brian looks the part. What really impressed me, though, was his extraordinarily broad view of physical health. I suppose it's a background in basic physiology and body parts that one expects from a competent trainer. But Brian knows a lot more than just that. He considers nutrition and diet as well as other physical activities that promote wellness including yoga. He emphasizes cross-training and some sort of post-work stretching regimen. What I thought would be a quest for firmer and maybe bigger muscles turned into something much more significant. I feel tremendously greatful that I encountered him when I did.

    Thanks Robert for taking the time to express your comments--I loved the "total mensch" part. It was certainly a pleasure working with you! Rarely have I had a client as disciplined and motivated as yourself. It's what makes being a personal trainer so grand! All the best in your endeavors.

    I have been working with Brian for almost three years. He is very knowledgeable. He is very fussy about your form and posture while you are performing the various exercises to insure your safety and to prevent injuries. He tracks your performance and changes the exercise routines to meet help you reach you goals> he is very good at changing the sequence of the exercises to prevent boredom.

    A dedicated and highly knowledgeable professional, Brian knows how to work with his clients to identify their goals and objectives and then to formulate a strategy that will get them there. Brian is someone who wants you to work out better, not harder, and will constantly adjust and adapt the workout to keep it effective. Highly recommended.
