In 1989, I started STEPS, Nashville's first personal training center, specifically for the newest fitness professionals to ply our trade. I have contributed chapters on personal training to a couple books as well as many print and on-line media. In addition to providing expert commentary, I have been teaching personal trainers nationwide for Exercise ETC (Ft. Lauderdale), a premier CEC provider for fitness professionals, for over 15 years. I have a 6th degree black belt from the World Tae Kwon Do Federation; 3 kids; and still love coming to work with clients day in and day out. In fact, I have had about 25% of my clients for 20 years and over 50% for 5 or more years, but still find slots for new clients who need my expertise and attention as needed.
