Q: What do you do?

I’m a trainer for professional athletes and celebrities in Beverly Hills, CA. Formerly the Director of Strength and Endurance for one of the most renowned pro-basketball teams.

Q: What’s the best part of your job?

Watching people “get it”. Whether that means mastering an exercise or realizing that what they are doing makes a difference in their lives, I love being courtside for that aha moment!

Q: How did you get into your profession?

Someone asked me to train them one day. Not typical, I know, but it worked out ok.

Q: What is your favorite flavor of BioSteel Sports Drinks?

Blue Raspberry Sports Drink all day. Except on the 4th of July, then it’s Mixed Berry.

Q: How did you get introduced to BioSteel?

I first discovered BioSteel Sports Drinks while working as Director of Strength and Endurance for one of the most renowned pro-basketball teams and have believed in it ever since. When the time was right, I was excited to come aboard because the quality at BioSteel speaks to me and to what I try to bring to the fitness industry.

Q: How does BioSteel help your everyday?

It helps me stay hydrated and able to perform at work. I can’t afford to fade at my job!

Q: What is your greatest career accomplishment?

Having a happy home, terrific wife, and 5 stellar kids!

Q: What’s your motto for motivation?

You have to want this more than I want it for you.

Q: How is clean, healthy, hydration important to both you and your clients?

It keeps you firing on all cylinders. You work at a higher level for a longer time. Translation: you can get more done and that’s a win-win.

Q: With over 30 years of experience in the sports/fitness industry, what’s one piece of advice you can share with us?

Start now. There are very few dates and anniversaries that matter outside of your personal life. No one cares when you “got into fitness/health/fill in the blank”, so start NOW.
