Who I've helped
"Before working with Anthony, I experienced severe neck pain and many asthma flare-ups. Additionally, I felt sluggish and unbalanced physically & nutritionally.
I thought this was going to be the way of life as one ages. Therefore, inhalers, Tylenol, and massage therapy became part of my routine regimen. During severe episodes of asthma, rounds of antibiotics, steroids, and breathing treatments were required. It was around the same time when I sadly retired a set of 8-pound dumbbells after an initial misuse (not knowing what I was doing, I had strained my neck and back). After consulting with Anthony, he assured me that I would graduate past the 8-pounders. Due to my lack of skills and strength, I was initially skeptical about what progress could be made. With Anthony’s expertise, coupled with commitment to consistency, I am finding myself exceeding expectations.
Due to targeted exercises and breathwork these past two years, the neck pain that required regular visits to the chiro ceased to exist, and I have rarely needed the use of an inhaler. There has beensignificant improvement relating to asthma symptoms as I have not needed to take any antibiotics, steroids, or breathing treatments. I feel stronger, more fit, and tone.
Undoubtedly, I would not have been able to achieve any of this on my own so I am eternally grateful for Anthony. Overall, training with him can only be described as a life-altering journey!"
"I have only great things to say about Anthony. I feel like he's an old soul with a unique perspective on life that can help a lot of people. Before talking to him, I was fairly stressed, worried about some physical setbacks I was experiencing post-injury and overwhelmed with my busy life as a working mom of 3.
I was very frustrated with unexplainable pain & constantly feeling injured during exercise, things that my mainstream doctors couldn't explain to me. But although my focus was on the physical, we began addressing a lot on the mental side of things early on - which was just as much a part of my troubles as the physical.
Anthony has a way of challenging you in a positive and constructive manner that will make you reflect on your beliefs and the reasons for why you're doing things.
On the physical side, Anthony directed me to good resources that taught me about pain in addition to sharing what he knew and reframed my understanding of pain completely- something I've continued to use and even shared with other family members. The mental topics we discussed and challenged correlated with the physical training we were doing as well - it was all cohesive.
Anthony is super knowledgeable about anatomy and movement in the body and created custom training programs that intelligently progressed me in strength and difficulty so that I could get back to doing what I loved. Through his programs, I was able to build a base and relearn movements that corrected my form and taught me valuable skills I still use. I was able to gradually progress to where I could confidently workout on my own again without fear and pain - which is exactly what I wanted to do.
Ultimately, I learned a lot about myself and the mind-body relationshipwhile I worked with Anthony. I learned about how my fears & stress translated into tension in my movement, and he helped me gain back my confidence, strength and ability, by meeting me where I was. Anthony was always personable, and accessible, and I feel like he truly cared about me and how I was doing - a friend. I never felt like he was rushed with our time together.
I definitely recommend Anthony to anyone who's looking for a unique approach to health and fitness in both body and mind."
"My osteopenia disappeared after 6 months with Anthony’s guidance. I literally started growing bone in my 50s and have the tests to prove it."
"Working with Anthony felt like nothing short of a miracle. Through his careful assessment and thoughtful progressive program, he returned my shoulder to full function…something I thought I would never experience again.
Additionally, I got a heck of a lot stronger and more in control of my balance. I also discovered the importance of using one’s breath. Many times, I reported back to Anthony the changes I noticed in my daily life, for example, lifting my bike onto the car rack was a great deal easier.
I give a lot of credit to his careful planning, his encouraging manner, and great personality."
