Online Training

Do you want to get strong, improve your health (feel good and have energy) actually look like you work out, and get it done in as little as 30 minutes per day?

Chances are good that this program is the one you’re looking for.

It’s good to move more and not spend all day sitting, but if your schedule only allows you 30 minutes of focused training, then we can make that work.

I’ve worked with regular people for over twenty years. Many of whom had to train around or address injuries. All of whom had to get it done fairly quickly and then get back to the demands of their schedule.

You might not be carrying a lot of unwanted weight, but you know that you need to get stronger because things that used to be easy aren’t so easy anymore.

So what is this program?

  • A personalized approach based on your goals and givens (time available, where you train, etc.)
  • Workouts built on simple movements that are easy to learn and that won’t make you look silly.
  • Using cardio for health and performance, not as a blunt instrument to burn calories.
  • Basic lifestyle and nutrition advice that will won’t make you weird and will give you energy, not just make you tired and hungry.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room

You can absolutely become visibly fit in a reasonable amount of time per day and without having to live on plain chicken and steamed broccoli.

Let’s talk about the other elephant in the room

You can do this at your current level of fitness and energy.

Won’t I bulk up if I make strength a priority?

The most common objection people have against getting serious about the weight room or even basic calisthenics is the fear of becoming bulky. Avoiding proper strength out of fear of suddenly getting huge is akin to not driving your car because you’re scared you’ll wake up one day as a top level NASCAR driver!

The people who bulk up train differently. They dedicate every aspect of their lives to trying to maximize their physique, have the genetics, and then of course, there are steroids.

You aren’t going to get that big by working out with more focus and eating a little more protein.

Also, the toned look that everyone wants requires more muscle. That’s actually good news. It means you know what should be your main emphasis when you work out.

Muscle isn’t just window dressing.

  • Being stronger and regaining muscle means that your joints are supported and things tend not to hurt.
  • Being stronger makes everything easier to do.
  • Gaining or regaining muscle makes you more resistant to chronic disease.
  • Muscle drives your metabolism
  • Regular training is the most under prescribed anti-depressant in the world.
  • Looking better as a result is also a nice benefit as well.

Another common objection is the fear of injury.

If you think strength training is dangerous, try being weak. Being weak is dangerous.

The things that lead to injury in training are ego and inattention.

If you make every rep look great, only do what you can do well, and work on gradual improvement, then your odds of injury are very low.

You can’t out train a bad lifestyle

In addition to the training, making a few basic adjustments in terms of nutrition (generally eating more protein and cutting processed foods), protecting your sleep, and getting outside more often will also be addressed because you can’t out exercise a bad lifestyle.

The good news is that most what we think we have to do, like living on rabbit food, detox teas, and weird shakes are not required and I won’t advise you to do any of that.

How does it work?

Each month you’ll get your training program by way of email and through an app. If you prefer pencil and paper, then you can print out your workouts or track them in a notebook.

There’s a check in by email once a week. You can bring up questions, what worked and what didn’t, and also how you did in terms of diet, sleep, etc.

How much does it cost?

$75 per month. For the cost of a single personal training session at most gyms, you get a month’s worth of training as well as accountability.

A three month minimum commitment is suggested.

There’s a learning curve and the body doesn’t want to make drastic changes overnight.

How do you pay?

You can pay through the QuickCoach App or through Venmo.

Do you really need a gym membership?

If going to the gym is a deal breaker, then you’ll need to set up a good training space at home. You can can start with an adjustable set of dumbbells for under $100 and add equipment as needed.

If you’re nervous about the gym, don’t be. I can teach you how to navigate the gym like a pro.

What about conditioning/endurance?

Do enough to get your heart rate up and break a sweat, but don’t make yourself miserable. You don’t have to go for a max calorie burn for a set amount of time. That will be covered as well.

If you’re interested in improving speed and athleticism, then I can help you work towards those goals as well.

If you’re pressed for time, then cardio might have to go on the back burner. Cardio is good for overall health, but it’s not the most important piece in the puzzle for fat loss.

What about flexibility?

Strength training through a full range of motion will do more for your flexibility than all the ballet classes at charm school. Still, stretching does feel good, and five to ten minutes a day is about all most people need. I have routines that you can do in that time.

You really don’t have to watch every repetition and every move I make?


You’ll have access to instructional videos that explain and show things clearly, and you won’t get an overwhelming number of movements to learn.
