The greatest difference between what I do and what MOST personal trainers do is I rarely work with people in person for the purpose of exercise. Although I’ve been certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) I am also Wellness Coach trained through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Prior to becoming certified in either of these fields, however, I authored a body-transformation textbook.
In 1999 I wrote, programmed and created Leanness Lifestyle and the online educational-support portal called Leanness Lifestyle University. My program is here http://www.LeannessLifestyle.com and the textbook is at Amazon.com.
Since 1999 I’ve provided Executive Wellness Coaching to Fortune 500 executives, Academy Award winners, elite athletes, military personnel, models, personal trainers and doctors all over the world. My program IS science-based and is openly embraced by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, and physical therapists.
Health clubs such as YMCA, Powerhouse, Golds and Anytime Fitness have offered my online exercise programs to tens of thousands of their members nationwide.
Police, fire departments and hospitals have offered my online corporate Lifestyle@Work program to their employees.
Medically-supervised weight-loss clinics utilize my online wellness-coaching support system for their patients to enhance their own in-house weight-loss programs
My program was approved by and was awarded a grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health for implementation into Illinois companies.
I spend the greatest majority of my time with individual clients on the telephone or private communication with them through internal Private Messaging within my website. I let personal trainers do what they are best at — training people in person with exercise. While I can do that I prefer to work on the 85% most people wanting weight loss need and that is more wellness centered (i.e., improving overall wellbeing through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual areas with the regular practice of healthy behaviors which of course include nutrition and exercise).
If I can be of assistance to you you can contact me through the Leanness Lifestyle website. I look forward to helping you achieve your health and fitness goals this year or any other.
