I’m certified as both an ACSM-CPT and W.I.T.S. certified personal trainer. Additional, I'm a physical therapy technician/personal trainer at Illinois Bone and Joint Institute. I enjoy training all types and levels of individuals, but I have additional training, experience, and knowledge when working with seniors, post-rehab and obese clients. I use the knowledge that I've learned from the physical rehab world and incorporate it into the strengthening world.

I remember what it was like for me when I first decided that I wanted to achieve a better level of fitness for myself. And my story is much the same as many others. I was eager to learn but also needed the benefit of patience, guidance and motivation from my instructors once the glow of a new fitness program wore off. My experience has taught me that what works best is when an instructor is sincere in his love of teaching and genuinely engaged with his clients.

I truly feel that fitness and a healthy lifestyle can and should be fun. If I’m doing my job right, my clients will find both their physical fitness levels and attitudes towards life in general improving as they grow in their self-confidence and positive body image.

    When i began working with Greg, i was 40 pounds overweight, struggling with arthritis in my big toe joints and just plain out of shape. Greg started me slow, but over about six months i lost 42 pounds and gained a very fit and lean body. I am physically as well as mentally stronger than i have ever been. Greg was able to instruct and train me using many innovative techniques to keep any pressure off my feet. Additionally we were able to keep a modified training program while i recovered from a severe case of vertigo. Now that is truly an accomplishment. He kept me going when i really didn't believe i could.

    I feel great and when i look in the mirror i still can't believe who i see!
