Founder and owner of Peak Performance NYC, certified strength and conditioning specialist, New York, N.Y.
Fitness philosophy: Fat loss (and being lean) is really a lifestyle! It's about being disciplined with your nutrition, training, and recovery. It's about creating and embodying a positive mindset so that when obstacles occur, one doesn't get discouraged or derailed from this objective. All of these things need to work together in order to optimize your path to the body you desire.
