Disclaimers and Such
Although certifiable, I am not certified as a training or weight loss instructor. Instead, I am relying on my 40+ years of experience as an athlete and from exercising both with and without professional trainers. My exercise routines enabled my ability to run in the Boston Marathon and the Falmouth road races. Undergoing numerous bouts of physical therapy including learning how to walk again, has provided me with a keen sense of recovery and strengthening routines.
I am a graduate of Bridgewater State University with a degree in communication including courses in nutrition, and psychology. Additionally, I have had extensive Cognitive Behavioral Training (CBT) as a patient with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center for PTSD/MST,
