About Me


Hi, I'm Cole.

Things You'll Find Out About Me

I'm hilarious. I know more about fitness than you do...like way more...I have two masters to prove it and have set my sights on a doctorate. I said modest too, right?

Patience is my virtue - no matter how much you complain, vent, and negotiate (try to) your way through a session. I'm a happy camper, whether it's 6am, 8pm or afternoon nap time. I eat...a lot...and I mean A LOT.

I care about each and every one of my clients, so much so that I consider them to be part of my (incredibly buff and ripped) family. I know everything about them and they know everything about me - that's how trust is developed and a better mind & body are built. 

I believe in doing things right - no pretend fitness here. Semi-therapist. Part-time superhero. I will always wear a shirt to your session - despite what you see on this website. I love my wife very very much, and not just because she did this website.

Swipe right (or left? i've never used those apps) if i'm the personal trainer for you. just kidding, this page can't do that - but you can contact us.

FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY (FST)

#stretchsesh

Fascia is a type of connective tissue that is in, around and between muscles, blood vessels and nerves.  Fascial Stretch Therapy is an assisted form of table-based stretching during which a certified FST therapist (me) gently pulls and moves the legs, arms, spine, and neck in a smooth motion at various angles to remove pressure between joints, release joint-lubricating synovial fluid, and improve flexibility of muscles.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


When I was introduced to Cole, I hadn’t done any weight training or conditioning in almost 3 years. After major knee surgery, Dr.’s told me I would never do anything outside of walking, swimming or biking - squats and weight-bearing exercises would never be part of my life again. A trusted health advocate introduced me to Cole as someone who would be able to help. Cole customizes his workouts to where you are in your own personal journey.

He is realistic, encouraging and yet will challenge you into your next level (and takes your glares/grunts and complaints along the way). He understands your struggle, challenge and goal and when you don’t think it is possible...he will prove you wrong. I’m proudly squatting 90 lbs, deadlifting 165 lbs, and pulling 180 lbs. More importantly, I feel healthy, strong and proud to show those Dr.’s wrong. I proudly recommend Cole to help you with your fitness challenge.
— Bethany N.
If you’re looking to just “check the box” on half ass working out, Cole is not the trainer for you. He will not let you get away with anything; Cole sees everything. He is completely engaged in every training session, constantly adjusting your form, keeping you moving and pushing you to do more than you thought possible. This guy never has a bad day and he’s so damn nice and funny. More nice than funny. I have reduced my body fat by 10% — the first time I’ve ever seen results with a trainer — and we’re still working on lowering it further. I’m a client for life.
— Julie C.
Over the past 5 years, I’ve been plagued with lower back spasms and general back pain. I am pretty active and can be tough on my body - from high intensity cardio to heavy lifting - and this is no doubt what caused my injuries. Every time I would get a back spasm, my treatment would go something like this - get a spasm, be in debilitating pain and unable to move, go to the chiro/tradition physical therapy, treat the muscle spasm, go back to normal life, get a spasm again in two weeks, repeat this cycle. I was on a crusade of getting a back spasm once every 2-3 weeks for a good period of time. Then, I got to talking with Cole after his class one day about Fascial Stretch Therapy, so I figured why not give it a try. There was a lot I lost from FST - no more back spasms, no more tight, achy hamstrings and IT bands from all the running I do. Cole even worked the upper body to combat some neck and shoulder pain that I was dealing with (who knew it was possible to stretch the neck?). But, what I gained was what really surprised me - increased mobility in my hip flexors and better form, I can get deeper into my squats and have better posture, quicker recovery - my muscles aren’t achy and I’ve been able to bounce back from workouts much better. Overall, I feel like a million bucks after each session, even days after. And I’m happy to report that it’s been about six months and counting since I’ve had a back spasm and Cole’s FST is a very large reason behind that.
— Sarah W.
Since working with Cole I have exceeded my goals of passing the CPAT, rebuilding strength following shoulder surgery, and preparing for the fire academy. I could not have done any of those things without him. Seriously, I tried. I attempted the physical exam to become a candidate for the CFD, relying on my fitness level at the time and failed passing. I returned and asked Cole to train me before giving it another try. Within a couple of months, I passed the CPAT with a time that placed me in the top 10% for women. What I didn’t expect to gain was a lifelong love and appreciation for fitness, and a body confidence I’ve never had. It’s dramatic to say it’s changed my life, but to say anything less would be inaccurate. Cole’s extensive knowledge, skill, creativity and easy going nature makes every session fun and something I look forward to.
