He has trained all of our top swimmers to the highest levels within our club from Nationals to Olympic trials.

This powerful methodology gets the most done in the shortest amount of time. He feels the days of 2 hour grind it out workout sessions are quickly coming to an end. High quality, short bout sessions are the most effective way to get results. Some of the best strength and conditioning people in the industry have been proving this for years. Every client and athlete gets to experience a wide variety of modalities including speed, agility, power, balance, and cardiovascular training. All of these components can be applied at varying levels of difficulty and are crucial to keeping everyone--from elite athletes to grandparents--moving much more effectively and injury free. Coach Steve believes that everyone can smash any goals they might have, if they just go about it the right way!
