An exercise professional with over 20 years of experience in the health and fitness field,
he was first certified as a personal trainer in 1984. John has a degree in Exercise
Science, is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine, The Pilates Institute

articles that have been published across the web and in print.
From 1985 - 1988 he worked as an assistant
manager for Nautilus Plus in the Los Angeles -
Hollywood area. During this time he co-authored
the Nautilus Fitness Training Program. This
instructional piece was utilized company wide as a
standard for all of it's personal trainers.

In 1989 John partnered with his sister Joanne to
found Ultimate Health Medical Exercise Center in
Los Angeles also serving Hollywood, Studio City,
Toluca Lake, Universal City and Burbank. This
unique facility was designed to fill the gap  
between fitness club workouts, Pilates salons and
traditional physical therapy. Over the years the
prescriptive exercise programs he designed and
implemented have brought relief and real results
to many individuals for conditions such as chronic
pain, sports injuries, and weight related health
Exercise Philosophy
Physical change through exercise is a process known as adaptive response. Simply put,
whether you are toning, building or reducing, your physiology will respond to meet the
demands placed upon it. To maximize the adaptive response, training protocols must
continue to evolve. If you have been on the exact same workout regimen for more than
a few weeks your results have stagnated. At Ultimate Health we incorporate not only
alternating weight training routines, but other disciplines such as Pilates, kick boxing,
suspension, core and functional training to effect recruitment of as many muscle groups
as possible. See
Training page for description.

Strength training is not enough, your ultimate health requires workout programs that
enhance stability, flexibility, aliment, balance, coordination and of course aerobic and
anaerobic capacity.

I have trained moms, dads, students, teachers, grooms, brides, firemen, policemen,
marines, Navy SEALS, actors, professional athletes, and everyone has a fitness
threshold. Elevating that threshold will bring you ultimate results.
