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 but tend to work best with older adults and middle age athletes 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 and movement evaluation. Then we'll begin to teach your body how to perform fundamental strength training exercises and movements.
Strengthen your body, enhance your life.
