To say the least my favorites include the incredible Ava Cowan; featured in magazines, ads and on stage at the Olympia and Arnold.

Everything About Cardio

I really enjoyed shooting this video for Palm Springs Fitness Center. Actually a little long for social media, but it really explains the good and bad about “cardio machines” for weight loss. Everybody wonders about why they can march on that treadmill for hours and hours and never lose a pound. I know this is a hot topic; very quickly it was watched by a few thousand people. Check it out…


Warrior Woman!

One of the most incredible women I know, Kerstin Schulze. Accomplished fitness star and trainer, actress seen in many features and commercials. A role model for those who are bullied, feel different or left out. We will be seeing much more of Kerstin and her message of being a better you.

From our photo and video shoot just a few days ago. Make up by the Estee Lauder featured artist, Blanche LeBeau. Hair by @phatarachavis. My assistant for the day, the many talented Shauna Toerner.

Would Have Been Playing Video Games

I often get asked, what is the hardest part of working out. The answer is always, getting to the front door of the gym in the first place. Get that accomplished and everything else will fall into place. One of my videos for Palm Springs Fitness Center.
