Welcome to REAL Athlete

I created REAL Athlete to share with you what I have learned from over a decade in the fitness industry. I have taken my experiences in Sport, Coaching, Personal Training, and CrossFit to mold the ideal training program where science and education meet the physical demands and competitive environment of CrossFit. Expect Results in the following areas: 

  • Muscle Endurance and Strength
  • Power
  • Conditioning
  • Flexibility and Mobility
  • Body Composition

REAL Athlete will expose your weak spots. You cannot hide from this program. But when you conquer feats you never thought you could, you will have more confidence. And for that, you will be a better athlete, spouse, parent, employee, and person. You will be challenged daily. There will be days you want to give up. When you persevere and stick to the program, I guarantee you will be in the best shape of your life!

Who is REAL Athlete designed for?

Anyone looking to improve performance and have a solid training program that answers all of their training needs! Unfortunately, too many dedicated gym goers are not getting the results they deserve due to a lack of science-based workouts and variability. Also, athletes of all ages are exposed to poor weight-lifting education and old-school training methods that usually involve the theory “ The More Weight the Better”. The people engaged in REAL Athlete are goal oriented; they are driven by setting goals and training to achieve them. If you’re ready to be in the best shape of your life, this program is for you!

What is the REAL Athlete training philosophy?

Safety is always my first priority. Athletes should not get injured while training and an injured athlete cannot train which is very counter-productive. REAL Athlete is designed to not only resist injury, but also strengthen commonly-weak muscles that are leading to poor lifting technique. I understand the balance between Strength Training and Performance. I am not trying to make you a professional weightlifter or power lifter, but rather produce improvements in all aspects of performance.
REAL Athlete focuses on developing movements over muscles. There will be no “Back and Bicep Day ” in your program. Instead, there will be a “Pull Day” involving functional pull patterns such as Deadlifts, High Pulls, Pull-ups, and Row Variations.
I place an emphasis on developing the muscles of the posterior chain through a variety of prone floor exercises and hip-dominant pulling exercises. These movements are incredibly important in developing Strength and Power. Additionally, incorporating these movements can alleviate the poor posture that most people hold.
Last, but certainly not least, REAL Athlete is fun and challenging!

Why is REAL Athlete so successful?


REAL Athlete is successful because of it’s 3 Pillars:

1. Injury Prevention and Corrective Exercise

Although often overlooked and skipped, performing exercises to improve technique and mobility can enhance performance by allowing proper movement mechanics. Everyone has faulty movement patterns due to overactive and tight muscles. Without any additional training to fix these issues, injuries will occur and plateaus cannot be passed. Fixing these issues will lead to immediate performance improvements. Every REAL Athlete workout involves both mobility exercises and skill/technique work on exercises.

2. Performance Oriented

Every part of REAL Athlete is geared around performance – not weight loss, not body composition, and not muscle size (although you will experience many of these as an added benefit). You will enjoy feeling improvements in strength, endurance, power, and conditioning by participating in science-based workouts with proven results.

3. Empowers the Athlete

REAL Athlete will teach you to believe in yourself. You cannot achieve a goal you don’t believe you can. An athlete’s mental capacity and confidence limits his or her ability to perform. REAL Athlete will build your confidence by developing physical capabilities as well as mental toughness; When you finish a workout you never thought you could or when you’re on the brink of calling it quits and you finish one more round. These levels of confidence will boil into every aspect of your life.
