my role

For the past 5 years I’ve been working as a personal trainer but I’ve been studying movement and the body for most of my adult life – through dance, yoga, martial arts, and athletic performance. As I’ve gotten older – I’m 62 – I’ve grown increasingly interested in training the body for resilience.

I think it’s important as we age to look at how we’re holding the aging process itself, because it’s easy to get discouraged. Our bodies are changing in ways we’re not necessarily happy about. But science is also showing us that we have a lot more control over the process than we think.

The Long Game is about developing a practice that makes us feel better now, and gives us the best chance of extending our health span as far into the future as possible – physically, cognitively, emotionally, and energetically. My role is to provide people with useful, science-based information through teaching, various forms of physical training, and coaching.

Some of my credentials and certifications:

  • Master of Arts in Dance/Movement Therapy, NYU
  • Certified Brain Health Trainer, FAI
  • Certified Personal Trainer, National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)
  • Stress, Sleep, and Recovery Coach (Precision Nutrition)
  • Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM)
  • Athletic Performance Training Specialist (NASM)
  • Functional Movement Systems, Level 2
  • Precision Nutrition, Level 1
  • Open Water Kayak Instructor, Level 2 (ACA)
  • CPR/AED Red Cross certified

The goal of longevity is not simply to live longer, but to be more fully alive as we age. So how do we do this?
