Hi, thanks for popping by. Clearly you have impeccable taste! My name is Glen, I am an Muscle System and Exercise specialist that supports my clients and athletes in fulfilling their highest physical potential. As a Muscle Health Specialist I assess, treat, and strengthen the neuro-muscular system. Essentially, I find out which parts of your body aren't firing that well and help them fire better so you can do all that stuff you want to like play sports, lift weights, burn fat, play with your kids...all that jazz! If you want to add some muscle and lose some body fat, I can assist you with that too.
Over the past 7 years I have enjoyed the process of learning and educating people in how they can be faster, stronger, and manage the source of pain. I am blessed to have worked with CEO's, personal trainers, world class performers, moms, dads, young athletes, and recreational athletes. More than anything, I love when dedicated athletes and clients share how they have experienced a breakthrough in their physical performance. I am also blessed to have the esteemed privilege of working along side, and learning from, the brightest of trainers and entrepreneurs in the health and fitness community.
