Born in 1960, and named after my father, I was once a professional actor. I have been married to a brilliant singer, Natalie Douglas, for 18 years and together for 26. I do what I do now for a reason: I always struggled with my weight after puberty. It always went up and down, but during my acting career, it stayed pretty much in control. After I left acting things physically went downhill. And by the time I took the next picture on my honeymoon, I was feeling pretty badly a lot of the time.
Then at 39, I looked at my aging parents as they dealt with heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, osteoporosis, and cancer - and honestly, I got scared. At that moment I made a conscious decision to age as well as I possibly could.
Now at 58, I do indeed have many of the same genetic issues my parents faced, but handle it very differently with exercise, diet, and both Western and alternative medicines. I work with all types of bodies and lives and specialize in metabolic, lifestyle, and hormonal changes; also chronic illnesses, such as MS, strokes, and cancer.
We will work your entire body with a holistic approach to the mind/body connection with strong adherence to exercise form while testing your limits without injury.
We will have weekly 30-minute phone, Skype or FaceTime check-in sessions and look at your daily, weekly, and long-term goals and, if necessary, tweak or recalibrate these goals, and clear your way to a fitter you.
I will produce customized workout programs that use core, strength and cardio training to target weaker muscles, build up the strong, remedy body imbalances and help with chronic injuries or illnesses.
Together we create full accountability for you through daily online tracking of your food, liquid, sleep and exercise. I will also act as your constant source for nutritional counseling.
