Brian M.

NASM-CPT

A New Yorker and NASM-certified trainer, Brian grew up playing competitive golf and basketball. Majoring in Theatre at Carnegie Mellon University, he studied Alexander Technique, ballet, jazz, and Laban Movement Analysis, along with many other techniques. This combination of athletic and functional movement training reshaped the way Brian viewed physical fitness and is incorporated into his sessions with clients. As a personal trainer, Brian focuses on alignment, breath, and the functional workings of the body as the foundation for strength, speed and power. He ultimately believes you must strive daily to challenge and understand your body in order to live a full, healthy physical life.
