Small Box Fitness locationSanta Cruz, California, Santa Cruz

Whether you’re an absolute beginner with mobility issues or an experienced weightlifter, young or old, I can help you with your fitness goals. Discover the exceptional benefits of training with kettlebells. They’re relatively safe, compact, and very effective. They’re also relatively inexpensive so you can have them at your home. But without proper instruction, kettlebells are at best minimally effective and at worst physically risky. Strength and conditioning training is a skill everybody can learn. Small Box Fitness is a deluxe boutique training center. It’s everything you’d expect at a big box gym with some notable advantages like: expert strength & conditioning coaching, a wide range of exceptional equipment, silent or your approved music choices, affordable rates, and a meticulously clean, private, training space. Available by appointment only for 1-on-1 or small group training. Small Box Fitness is your personal fitness training oasis.

Small Box Fitness Q&A

Small Box Fitness Q&A

How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

I help my student's by carefully assessing their functional movement limitations and asymmetries and creating a corrective program that targets and ultimately reverses many of these limitations. Also, based on the student's goals and current abilities, I create program that will not only help achieve those goals but impart the knowledge and skills to enable the student to train with confidence on their own throughout their lives. Strength and conditioning training is a skill everyone can learn from reputable teachers such as myself.

What’s the secret to getting the body of your dreams?

The secret to getting the body of your dreams is first knowing what's realistic. For instance, an 80 year old 150 pound man will never be able to bench press 600 pounds. Not only is it not feasible, it's unsafe. So knowing that a goal is realistic and achievable is the first step. Then, after determining what it will take to achieve this goal, consistency is the number one element to success. It takes determination and fortitude to stay on the plan. Now things come up in life, people get sick or hurt occasionally. But there are always things you can do to further your trainings. Maybe you just stretch on those days you don't feel well. The point is, you need to be committed to the plan, whether it be a specific diet, workout, or even how much sleep you get each night. And if something in the plan isn't producing the results that were expected, then the plan is adjusted to correct that. The more committed one is, the higher the likelihood of success. Work the plan. Plan the work.

What do you love most about your job?

The reason I retired from sitting at a desk all day writing operating system software is because I really needed to feel I was directly helping people. In the process, I also helped myself since any good trainer will think of themselves also as a lifelong student. Always learning more and more how to help people including myself live life to the fullest in health and wellbeing.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I started out training many clients at public and corporate gyms but I was always not fully satisfied with the equipment and environment of these gyms. I also didn't like the crowded assembly line feel these gyms had and though most of the gyms got cleaned regularly, in my opinion, it wasn't enough (I actually saw a guy sneeze in his hand, then proceeded to grab a dumbbell to exercise - yuk!). I still train students a few days a week at outside gyms (I'm very picky now which gym I operate out of) though now I have a very impressive gym of my own. It's small. Operated out of my extensively remodeled garage. But it's super clean and has really great equipment that I know intimately and love teaching my students there. It's by far my favorite gym I've ever trained within. And it's my hope my student's feel the same.

Why should our clients choose you?

My mission is to help people increase mobility, get stronger, and improve overall wellness. I recognize the one-size-fits-all model to fitness training can be a crapshoot. Everyone has "issues" and different goals. So I work with individuals to develop the best program for them now and the progressions that follow. I've been in the "school of strength" now for over 10 years and have learned so much in that time. Dieting, strength building, conditioning, injury prevention and in many cases, recovery. I'm confident I can make a difference for the better in people's wellbeing.
