The Mission

Our mission is to provide resistance training focused physical therapy continuing education courses. The formula is simple: use the latest research to build content that can be applied immediately. All courses are designed with one question in mind: what does it look like in the gym, at-home, or in-clinic? The approach is straight forward: design courses based on what we all want to know - which exercises to do and how to structure them?

All courses are built using new science and include training templates and sample routines for immediate use.

I have spent a lifetime in gyms - from athletic training centers to boxing gyms in Texas, Mexico, and Las Vegas, and where I started, the Gold's gym behind the Florida State football stadium. I want to share that knowledge and experience with anyone who wants to learn more about resistance training methods. 

My intent is to bridge the gap between traditional weightlifting methods and healthcare outcomes. Modern science tells us that resistance training is a vital, one of the most important indicators, of health, wellness, aging, and performance. The key is in the programming - join me and together we'll explore how to bring resistance training to the forefront of healthcare.
