The "SILVER EAGLE"

Nicknamed the "SILVER EAGLE"; due to "way past" retirement age and a reputation for doing 1,000 Push-up on his 67th birthday.

5 DECADES OF FITNESS EXPERIENCE

I established my Training Studio having over 5 decades of Fitness Experience [Complete BIO]; it was time to leave the world of work as I knew it and professionally do what I know best, love, and have preached to friends, relatives, and strangers most of my adult life - and to stop the madness of so much misinformation on fitness. My passion is to inspire and motivate your as I endeavor to directly change the "Quality of Life" of those committed to a healthier self and find that spark inside you that will make a significant change in your overall health. 

SO WHY AM I A FITNESS TRAINER?

Because I truly believe that if a person has been blessed with a gift, that before God they MUST give back to society by teaching/training others what they have learned. 

I am Professionally Certified through the NATIONAL ACADEMY of SPORTS MEDICINE, an industry leader in Fitness Certifications.

CHOOSING A PROFESSIONAL

 When Choosing a PROFESSIONAL FITNESS TRAINER, the deciding factor should be their experience, and that experience must transcend the norm in the fitness industry. And to add to that, the trainer/coach MUST have the ability to communicate that experience to the individual, or time and money will be wasted.  WE DELIVER! 

MAKE IT COUNT

When you exercise, MAKE EVERY REPETITION COUNT, AS THOUGH THAT 1 REP IS THE ONE & ONLY ONE YOUR WILL DO, AND THAT "IT" IS THE REP THAT WILL CHANGE YOU. MAKE EACH ONE COUNT EVERY SINGLE TIME!

For it is not all about the total repetitions you do, but how EFFECTIVE it is. No need to spend hours exercising (unless a competitive athlete); it is always best to MAXIMIZE THE TIME you spend working out, by doing what is proven to be the best per Sports-Science. 

INFLUENCING LIVES

 I've had the pleasure of being able to influence lives in the area of Fitness & Nutrition for over 5 DECADES, a life-experience only imagined by most.  MY PASSION is my PURPOSE; and a person's Quality of Life is truly important to me - as I know it most certainly is for you. We strive to "Make the Impossible Possible" - to help you attain a happier, healthier, more confident, and vibrant life - to help you become a better version of yourself.  

NEGATIVES & ISOMETRICS

I have also pretty much mastered the art of NEGATIVE & ISOMETRIC training, the true foundation of strength - used by Professional Athletes & Martial Art Masters World-wide (one reason Bruce Lee was known for his amazing strength, even at only around 137 lbs.) - also what Physical Therapists use (but on a much different degree)

This type training is  virtually a lost art in gyms and with trainers; but this is how we have helped people in our studio with difficulties such as Strokes to move and walk around again; and help those that never did a Push-up or Pull-up to do so at our facility.

MY HERO'S

I have also followed the teachings of  CHARLES ATLAS who created "DYNAMIC TENSION" in the 1950's, now typically called, Isometrics). JACK LaLANNE ("the godfather of fitness" as named by Arnold Schwarzenegger). And of course, BRUCE LEE'S exercise routines. And as mentioned earlier, my father​ Wally Sr. who was a 3 time AAU Gold Medalist on the Flying Rings, and 2 time U.S. Amputee Golf Champion. These are/were my heroes, mentors, and inspiration. 

I GET ASKED ALL THE TIME HOW I TRAIN:

Here is one piece of advice that most nobody does. And also, you don't have to spend 2-3 hours in the gym, that's insanity (unless training for a big event). Here's one of my secrets; other than consistency, intensity, proper form and diet:


When I’m going to do a set, I am aware of every muscle group in my mind...visualizing that area; I’ve already put myself in that training position for my muscles to do the work, I don't do the work and expect my body to get in position and then perform the exercise. I am mentally and physically aware to engage/contract my muscles fully in order to get the most effect out of each and every single repetition.

WHY I DON'T LIKE WEIGHT MACHINES AS THE "GO-TO" FOR WEIGHT TRAINING (they do have their place)

Machines predetermine where your muscles should go, instead of your muscles going where they SHOULD. On a free bar you can always adjust your positioning so it's an accurate and precise natural movement. 

Time to take charge of your destiny

SOME OF MY FAVORITE SAYINGS:

>  "Reputation is what people think of you, character is what you are." - Wally  

> Youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubts; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. -  Douglas MacArthur 

> Everything is impossible until someone does it. Everyone of us at one time could not walk, or do a push-up, until...we decided  that nothing will stop us.

>  You don't have to love the hard workouts; just crave "The End Results".

>  In order to have what you really want, you must first be who you really are. 

>  You don't have to compete with anyone, just know their weakness and attack.

>  My motto: "Show-up; Work hard; Listen".  

>  Complete focus for complete results.

>  If exercise make a person feel uncomfortable, well then, how uncomfortable is it to carry all the extra weight around and all the issues that come with it (back pain, joint issues, diabetes, heart problems,shortness of breath, medication etc) - complete (mostly avoidable) physical; failure. CHOOSE ONE: 1) Being uncomfortable sweating at a gym. 2) Uncomfortable being sick or all the time and/or with the above medical issues. 

>  Do you truly want to lose weight and get in shape? Then TRAIN HARD, EAT RIGHT, DON'T CHEAT, BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND, and KICK YOU OWN BUTT INTO GEAR.

Fitness is a big part of my everyday life and has been for years, and my passion is as strong as it's ever been and continues to grow. The reason for that is, the endless amount of growth one can see with fitness due to its many aspects; if not growth physically, you can experience growth mentally by learning more dietary information, and more information on how to help others of varying physical fitness levels. 


The most enjoyable thing to me is being able to help someone reach their fitness goals, and to envision their journey by them seeing something within themselves they couldn't have imagined without the right help. And then when they look back and see how far they've come, it’s such a good feeling to me - and I just love congratulating them. I also feel as though I'm doing an very important and good service when I can share my knowledge to those who want and need it. I couldn't imagine doing anything different!

{note: Julian used to be one of our members; just look at this human beast! And now we have the honor of  his helping others.}

Benefits of a Professional Trainer

Train With Purpose By Adding Structure to Your Workouts With a Professional Trainer.

Your body doesn’t betray you as you get older; most often than not, YOU betray your body!


A qualified personal fitness coach / trainer can help you safely start and maintain an effective exercise regiment and understands your 'fitness goals' to help you achieve them. A personal trainer can be a great source of motivation and encouragement, as well as a resource for the latest objective health and fitness information.  When choosing a professional fitness coach/trainer the deciding factor should be their experience, and that experience must transcend the norm in the fitness industry. And to add to that, the trainer/coach MUST have the ability to communicate that experience to the individual or time and money will be wasted.  


Fitness At Its Best! Ever know anyone that went to the gym and hit the weights, machines, and Group Classes for years, yet never REALLY changed significantly? Then others, within a short time, have a total transformation.  Here is an example of why: The majority of people that take up a hobby/sport such as Golf, Tennis, Running, etc. never use a trainer. Year after year they struggle to improve their game but only do so in small increments. 


Most every one of the people in this example try year after year to break 100 or even 90 in Golf, or endeavor to play Tennis at a higher level, or Run a 10k in a respectable time, yet never do. When a person takes up a sport or exercise, in order to see significant results in a much shorter period of time, they (almost without exception) MUST hire a coach/trainer to be sure they are executing the techniques correctly. 


A trainer turns weaknesses into strengths; they will SEE what that person could NEVER see on their own, that's why every professional athlete has a coach/trainer no matter how great they may be – to always take their game to a higher level and to keep it that way.  A person that utilizes a Professional and Highly-Experienced Trainer (that has lived what they preach for at least 5-10 years) will almost without exception, attain their goals extraordinarily fast and safe – going to a level of fitness that would be almost impossible to attain on their own. 


Respectfully, trainers that have worked out only a few years and then start training others do NOT have the proper experience; it takes YEARS to develop the skills, experience, knowledge, and wide-range of applicable abilities to PROPERLY train another person. 


For instance; if a trainer is a male weightlifter (and that is his main knowledge source) and tries to train a female that wants to tone and lose weight, or someone has physical limitations or past injuries of which proper care is needed, that trainer will most inevitably NOT be able to help them, and most likely will cause injury. DO utilize a trainer, but pick wisely.
