Hey you. Am I your type?
Your body type, that is...
We are all different shapes and sizes, this we know for certain, but there are different types of bodies and knowing where your body falls in line can be very helpful when determining how you should train and nourish yourself.

I utilize this information in all of my personal training programs, and would be glad to discuss what is optimal for you and your body type!
Knowledge is power. Know your body, and how best to move it. Move it. How best to move it. Move it.
