Personal & Small Group Training

Become Strong, Fit & Mobile

I offer person and small group strength training out of Big Island Strong, my private studio gym in Kainaliu, on the Kona coast of Hawaii. I have worked with a wide variety of people during my career, the majority of which have been older adults and middle-aged adults looking to strengthen their bodies while dealing with injuries. 

I follow the StrongFirst's philosophy. In short, this concept is we get you strong first. Once you are stronger, your other physical goals become easier to achieve. You'll also find flexibility and fitness tend to improve as you gain strength. Plus, training for more advanced and specific goals is often safer with a strong body.

We'll begin this process with an assessment where we will look at how well your body is able to perform basic, functional movement (squatting, lifting, lunging, pressing, etc.). Then we'll embark on a strength training journey, teaching you not only how to lift weights safely and effectively but also how to bring this knowledge and ability into your everyday life.

Strengthen your body, enhance your life.
