From 2009 to 2020 I successfully operated Urban Strength Institute in Chicago and trained a numerous of different athletes from multiple sports as well as working class people that simply wanted to lose body fat, gain some muscle, and get stronger. In September of 2020 I relocated to South Carolina and opened my third gym Ascend Perform. I decided to keep this website up to use for virtual clients that wanted to work with me.
21 years of experience and research have been refined down into my principles and methods.
I believe I have a healthy amount of skepticism regarding any biases I have towards training. Because of this my passion for what I do has never dropped, and I continue to learn and invest in my knowledge. Most coaches will brag about how great they are at their job. I prefer to let my clients speak for me, so I encourage you to read the testimonials.
When it comes to losing fat and getting lean, nothing matters more than what you eat. At USI we make sure to help you as much as possible albeit moving into your home and cooking for you. We use an app created by Designs For Health to put you on a diet that is right for you, and we help you implement it as well. You still have to do the work but we help you identify what the work is.
