At my core, I've been passionate about health and fitness for the past 45 years. I’m also passionate about sharing what I’ve learned and enjoy offering advice to those who see my results and want to know my “secrets” of success.
I started training and taking nutritional supplements in college and have never stopped. I graduated first in my class (physical fitness and self-defense) from the L.A. Police Academy in 1976. While a member of the LAPD x-country team, I ran a sub 3 hour marathon and placed 5th in the California Police Olympics in the 10K run. (34:29). More than thirty years later, I took first in the NW Ergomania Indoor Rowing Championships and 5th in the Longest Stair Climb in the World (162 stories) in Bellevue, WA.
But even as I was still going strong at the age of 60, I began to notice some not-so-positive changes. That’s when I began looking for a strategy that would help me slow down my aging process. In 2011, I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Cohen. After reviewing my previous lab assessments and performing additional ones through the Core 4 Nutrition program, I began following the Core 4 supplement system and made the Dr. Cohen’s recommended adjustments to my dietary and fitness regimens.
I eliminated almost all sugar the obvious, and as I discovered, the not so obvious hidden in places you least expect. I cut back on grains (other than a weekly popcorn treat) and traded endurance training with twice weekly high-intensity interval training; I combined yoga and body weight exercises with shorter strength training sessions and easier, longer-distance cycling. To top it off, I took up dancing two years ago– not for exercise, but for the love of music. It just happens to be a good complementary physical activity as well. This is now my great passion....
