Introduction: I found the gym later than most people in the fitness industry. I spent most of my youth skateboarding or snowboarding and did not relate those who had a gym membership or played competitive sports. I decided to join a gym in college with one of my good friends and what was once just something to do with my buddy turned into something I was really passionate about. The aspect of making myself stronger day after day really motivated me and I found myself wanting more. My interests started in bodybuilding and while I was able to gain a lot of muscle quickly, I also ended up with nagging injuries. To get my pain under control I changed my focus to strength training, then power lifting and it seemed to me the more strength I acquired, the more it helped me deal with my pain. It eventually backfired and I started having issues again to the point that I could barely walk at the end of the day. I felt defeated. I tried seeing a conventional Physical Therapist, a Doctor, and a Chiropractor who all helped, but my pain still relapsed and I wasn’t able to do what I enjoyed in and outside of the gym. During my first year of personal training I heard about the Postural Restoration Institute from trainers and Physical Therapists that I looked up to. I ended up taking a course and it blew my mind! I was doing everything wrong! I did a few of their techniques and the relief was instant. Fast forward to today and I have taken the main concepts from the postural restoration institute and have applied it to my clients training as well as my own. Now, my passion has become helping others with finding a sustainable strategy for fitness. I help people learn how to move their body in order to allow proper bio mechanics and long term success.

Hands down Cory is the absolute best personal trainer I've had. He pushes you and pays close attention to your body to make sure you are doing the exercises the right way. He is also super attentive and knowledgeable and very easy to talk to.

Cory is an exceptional trainer. I have trained with him for four years. When I first signed up for a trainer, I asked for someone who knew about kettlebells, and in Cory I got that and a lot more. Over then next number of years, he took my older and somewhat injury-prone body from being afraid to do many exercises (because knees!) to doing kettlebell snatches, deadlifts, dead bugs, and pullups, among other things. During the inevitable moments when I’d turn up to workout injured, rather than skipping the workout, he thoughtfully modified his plan so that I could still get gentle movement in and work other muscles, which was great in combatting the I’m-injured-and-feeling-sorry-for-myself blues. In addition to keeping an eagle eye on my technique and progressing me over time to more complex and interesting exercises, he also has a strong knowledge of physiology and practices PRI, from the Postural Restoration Institute. He used these techniques to help me be more resilient and injure less frequently. I recall working out with him after a car accident left me with whiplash and associated dizziness, and he showed me a PRI technique that actually took away the dizziness. Why would I go to workout only days after an accident? Because I trusted him to have something for me even in my degraded state! We did not do deadlifts immediately after, but thanks to his knowledge and patience, I was doing deadlifts again soon enough. Cory is also that rare beast in this day and age- extremely reliable. I cannot recall a time during those four years when he left me hanging for a workout, or didn’t inform me well in advance of upcoming vacations or time off. In the time I knew him, he advanced from being just a trainer to being in charge of a team of trainers. He also attended and then arranged workshops for PRI courses for fellow trainers. That he supports growth in himself as well as in his clients speaks volumes of good things about him and his work ethic. You can’t go wrong with Cory as your trainer. +100 recommend!

Training with Cory is a great experience. Cory is very professional and hard working. He is well versed in PRI (postural restoration) and teaches how to safety and effectively perform lifts and exercises. He is an authority in circadian rhythm optimization which can greatly enhance the effectiveness of your overall wellness plan. Overall, I would highly recommend Cory to help achieve your training goals.

I've been training with Cory for about a year and a half and I only have good things to say about his work: his professionalism, punctuality and training adaptation to my needs are excellent! Even when I'm in a new environment with few resources, he always manages to tailor sessions creatively. I love his methodology, always challenging me but at the same time respecting my limitations. As a result, my energy, stamina, and strength have increased considerably, and all thanks to Cory!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I start with a 25 min intro session over the phone or video call to go over goal and ensure that training together is a good fit. Then we get to work laying down the basics of how to control one's body in a purposful way that helps to keep joints aligned and muscles properly leveraged. Right away we will start to target specific goals to better your body and life.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a certified ACSM Exercise Physiologist. I have my level 1 and 2 Functional Movement Screen Certifications and I am a Bioforce certified Conditioning Coach. I have very extensive training from the Postural Restoration Institute.
