Starting a workout program only to drop out after only a few sessions? No Motivation! I can change that! Behavior Change strategies allow me to help you uncover the deep, motivation that people have and the real reasons why they quit only to have them turn around and go at it harder! 


So why pick me? One simple reason I get RESULTS, PERIOD! Just scroll down for a few of my success stories!

Did your trainer go through this rigorous training to obtain these credentials or just pass one exam? Honestly anyone can read a book and pass a test. The Master Trainer level is one that is judged by the in person professionals on professional conduct, expertise in program design and injury rehab or prevention. Once the candidate demonstrates his or her skill level with a random client, the Master instructor will pass along the notes to the board of education to be overseen by the Doctors of exercise. At that point after review, they decide if the candidate possessed the necessary skill set, and professional conduct to achieve the prestigious Master Trainer level certification. 2/3 of the candidates fail Master Trainer programs because it requires hands on testing. Too many trainers can memorize the information.
Areas tested live were proper assessment, proper program design based on assessment, proper and professional communication and coaching.

Offering in home one on one, small group, corrective exercise ,nutrition programming and online training at these 2 excellent establishments!

“”Phil is fantastic! He has been really great to work with. I have been dealing with chronic pain and lack of diagnosis for a year. With Phil’s help I am getting stronger in spite of not being able to do weight-bearing exercises. I really appreciate how he has catered the program to work with my body’s limitations. He is a great motivator and I am always amazed at much I accomplish in just an hour.” Christine L. Northeast Philadelphia


“”I’m 64 and haven’t been to a gym in years. I’m not trying to be a model just lose some weight and get healthy. I was really nervous my first season about what I’d be able to do and how I would be looked at being overweight and out of shape. Phil made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. He is very patient and encouraging. Phil started me on things that I was able to do. The workout is interesting and the time flies. He makes me feel like I’m not actually as bad as I think I am and that I CAN DO THIS. I’m really glad I (finally) got started.” Lucky R. Philadelphia.

I have the education and the system to get you the best results as your personal trainer in Philadelphia!  How do I differ from my competitors? They have 2 or 3 certs. My education is vast, so when you train with me, train with an experienced professional, far surpassing a “certified trainer.” 

Its my dynamic integrated training system and my approach that is unique. I utilize a step by step system which begins at the core and goes outward. Core, balance, flexibility, corrective exercise, posture alignment, aerobic endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and coordination! There are no random workouts! I am your Personal Trainer in Philadelphia!

Phil was very professional,courteous and very helpful. His experience and knowledge shows through his vast education . I have had trainers before but in just a short time I realized his experience and knowledge are above anything ive ever seen and yet he’s humble
He helped me get off of medicine for various issues and his system is like no other.
If you want an experienced respectful and exceptionally knowledgeable trainer contact him. Not all trainers are the same and it’s very evident in this case.
Phil helped me get my life back when modern medicine and others didn’t.
I had low back issues and various injuries and needed a trainer to understand that.
