I have 20  years experience working in preventive medicine as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist/Fitness Consultant at the world famous Cooper Clinic in Dallas, TX.  I have supervised and observed over 9,000 people walk on a treadmill over the years and have seen good  and poor movement. I have also conducted over 2,000 functional movement assessments.  Through many years of observation of movement I have come to realize that being and staying fit as we age has three major components: aerobic fitness,  functional strength , and overall ability to move well.

Whether you want move more efficiently, have less pain, get stronger and faster, and have more endurance, my wife Christian and I will help you achieve your goals through a proven systematic approach based of the Functional Movement Screen.

To Your Health and Wellbeing,

When it comes to strength, I always tell my clients to be active every day most minutes of the day!  It is so important to incorporate a wide variety of activities in our daily practice, anything that will allow you to move in a multi-directional manner.  Sit less move more! Practice MINDFUL MOVEMENT  and MOVE WITH PURPOSE" In this manner you will recruit more muscle fibers and your BRAIN! However learning how to move efficiently and engaging all muscles as a unit is not always easy but MOVE WELL STRENGTH techniques can help you achieve that!


Strength is a skill and we can all learn it!  This requires proper technique, MINDFUL MOVEMENT and good breathing skills. We can teach you these skills through our Move Well Training Method we can guide you toward achieving muscular balance, injury prevention and really focus on

"Quality vs. quantity" in an integrative movement format.

We look forward to helping you achieve your strength and fitness goals!
