About Me

Live Longer! Live Better!


Mission: Transform Your Life (TYL) represents my comprehensive approach to helping people of all ages experience lifelong health and fitness. 

Each decade of our lives provides its own unique opportunity to expand and deepen our commitment to what's best for our health, strength, and happiness. 

Armed with a sound scientific understanding of the human life cycle and a deep appreciation for ancient wisdom, TYL provides a path to live longer and live better. TYL inspires each of us to attain a strong, vibrant, and happier lifespan. 


How is this done?

My goal of a healthy and vibrant lifespan is accomplished through helping people of every decade sustain or recapture vibrant and robust health by means of:

-- Supporting physical strength, aerobic fitness, and flexibility and balance

-- adapting a plant-forward diet

-- promoting mental calmness 

-- nurturing supportive relationships

-- furthering supportive sleep

-- exposure to natural settings

-- and extolling work/life balance. 

In harmony with nature's healing capacity I hope to help people experience greater enjoyment, deeper personal satisfaction and prolonged well being.

Let's work together to create a life to enjoy?
