Gavin has always had a love of sport, exercise, and movement. He joined his first soccer team at 7 years old and still plays regularly today at almost 40 years old! He reached a career peak of playing semi-pro in England during the majority of his 20's.
Gavin's love of competition is what drives him to succeed, whether it's working toward a 500lb deadlift, winning the championship with his 6 a-side soccer team, fighting in Muay Thai amateur 'smokers, ensuring the high school students on the Varsity Soccer team he coaches have a positive and lasting experience, or helping a client reach their goals in the gym.
The way in which Gavin really excels as a coach and as a personal trainer is in his understanding of the intrinsic connection between the mind and the body, and his honest and approachable nature.
"Anybody can put a person through a generic workout and kick their butt," says Gavin, "but I believe the key to being a good personal trainer is the ability to be highly "personal." That means making the effort to really understand each individual, what motivates that specific person, and what hurdles can i help them overcome, both physically, mentally and emotionally. Every client and student is like a different puzzle and there is no better feeling in the world than figuring that puzzle out and setting them on the right path to achieving their goals."
Gavin's hobbies include spending time with his wife and two sons, hanging out with his friends, playing soccer, watching his beloved Manchester United, lifting heavy weights, Thai boxing, snowboarding, discovering new restaurants in the city, and traveling.
