Weightlifting is a must to stay strong and active; yet, mobility and stability are a priority for all ages and fitness levels.

Posture correction is a must for all.



This is ‘Bouldering’… if you like a good challenge, there is nothing harder.  If you are an advanced climber looking for a climbing guide, please send me an email and I will connect you with the best in CA.

Rockreation in West LA.

I have several clients who are avid indoor rock climbers (quite safe).

Lauren climbing

Indoor rock climbing is extremely safe and a lot of fun for ages 5 + (full body harnesses for small children) and is great for adults of all abilities.

Caroline climbing

There are beginner walls that are no more challenging than climbing a ladder.  For the more adventurous there is also a full arch climb and a bouldering area.

I also inspire everyone to try….



I can not stress what a waste of time and energy that all ‘stationary’ indoor cardio can be. 

Yes,  ‘stationary’ cardio is better than sitting on the couch and is acceptable if you can absolutely not get outside.  However, ‘stationary’ cardio will never create the real results that most people would like to see.  And, please note, the treadmill is a horrible invention (very bad for your body over time).   Please contact me if you would like a full explanation with many links to multiple scientific studies.

There is no substitute for REAL OUTDOOR EXERCISE.

Sullivan Ridge above Santa MonicaSullivan Ridge is just north of Santa Monica.

Los Angeles has countless wonderful areas with amazing weather year round… so stop making excuses and get outside!

The 4th Street Stairs in Santa Monica are great when short on time and the Santa Monica Mountains have hundreds of miles of low traffic roads cyclists and great trails for ages and abilities.

I offer outdoor fitness training and ‘just for fun’ trail guiding for running, hiking and road & mtn bike riding; great for individuals or groups up to 12 people.

Free Directions to the Local Trails
Brentwood, Palisades, Topanga, Malibu and more ~ great for running, hiking, walking and mountain biking.  Just send an email with the subject ‘Trails’.

I am always inspired by how a simple commitment to living a healthy lifestyle permanently changes peoples lives for the better.   It does not matter who you used to be or what condition you are in now… the only thing that matters is, “do you want to be healthy in the future?”.
