I graduated from Salem State with a degree in Sport/Movement Science. I have been an avid fitness enthusiast since I was in my early teens playing baseball, hockey, and football. I have background in powerlifting competitively along with training for general health and wellness. My love for the latter lead me to pursue a career in massage therapy, as I am currently going to school to be a Massage Therapist and plan to be fully licensed by April 16’.
At Gouverneur Central in New York State, where I was a 3 sport athlete: Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field, I set a few school records. I went to St. Lawrence University, where I majored in Psychology and continued running at the Division 3 level. Coaching isn’t just training someone to be better. Coaching is the perfect balance between instruction, constructive criticism, and genuine support. Training is the easy part, getting people to stay committed when life throws a stick in their spokes, now that’s the tough part.
As I continue to grow as a fitness professional, I’ve fallen into a couple niches – work with people in pain and endurance athletes. While I love working with as many clients from as many different backgrounds, those two categories gravitate towards me from my immense success. I also enjoy working with individuals looking to lose weight, gain muscle, or just improve their overall health.
Training sessions need to be challenging, but scaled depending on your current fitness level. I want all my clients to get the results they are looking for in a timely manner. I don't believe in doing the same workout for every single client. Each client comes in with different needs, different starting points and plans of action that will best assist them in reaching their goals. My passion for fitness and my motivation/dedication towards reaching goals shows while working with clients. Together we can reach your goal!
I’m a self-proclaimed nerd and my passion for always knowing everything possible to help my clients has led me to explore many facets of human performance and injury prevention, many of those techniques just becoming known of in the last couple of years. I always aim to stay at the forefront, so that I can provide the absolute best service.
HOBBIES & INTERESTS: Running is a huge part of my life. I enjoy watching nearly all sports, especially at the top level of competition. It is very inspiring to see the level of dedication that the athletes have towards becoming the best at their given sport. While I enjoy all sports, I always lean back towards endurance sports due to the individual nature. At the end of the day it is a battle between you and your mind – you are your own opponent.
Ron's health and training philosophy has not always been holistic. When Ron first started personal training in 2001, he trained both himself and his clients the same way, utilizing “old-school” bodybuilding techniques. It was "no-pain no-gain" and a calories-in /calories-out approach to training and nutrition However, Ron's health and training philosophy got a serious overhaul in 2011, when he experienced his own health challenges, which included the surgical removal of his gallbladder. Ron has since transformed his own body, mind and spirit, using holistic principles and is passionate about sharing his knowledge and helping coach others to this way of living.
