Training Philosophy

Steve utilizes a custom progressive program design for each clients individual goals. Postural assessments are used to prioritize corrective exercise/stretch recommendations. Skill evaluations are used to promote symmetry in strength, balance, flexibility, and range of movement. Muscle confusion and multi-tasking techniques are used to ensure maximum progress over time. Nutritional counseling is implemented with an emphasis on overall health along with cardiovascular goals to help achieve optimal body composition results.  "I aim to provide a highly motivating, safe, satisfying, and educational personal training experience every session"
