"Chad has been my
personal trainer for almost six years. I began
training on the advice of my physician to increase
bone density as I am at risk to develop osteoporosis.
Regular exercise and a healthier diet have not
only slowed down bone loss, but have had the added
benefits of improving muscle tone, weight loss
and more energy. Chad is very attentive during
training sessions to make sure that all exercises
are performed correctly so as not to cause injury.
He crafts diets to meet personal needs and lifestyles."
