George possesses a killer combination of smarts, hard work, and skill. Not only has he been one of the most pleasurable guys in the industry that I've worked with, he's also one of the brightest. I strongly recommend George and anybody who gets to work with him is lucky."

I've had the pleasure of working with George for several years - first as an intern at Cressey Sports Performance, and then as a fellow coach. I've seen first-hand his dedication to the craft and know anyone would be lucky to have him in their corner as their coach.

There are so many ways you have brought back my sense of wellbeing. Thank you for building up my confidence in providing very thought out specialized programs based on my medical history and the procedure notes I provided.

I am gaining strength again and have more energy than I have had in years. Your perseverance and focus are the keys to my success in dealing with my previous injuries. You have shown me that I can still train and get stronger, even at a young age of 60.

I truly appreciate your enthusiasm every time I walk in for a session and look forward to training with you for many years to come.

I was going to the gym consistently but was feeling bored and not really seeing the results that I wanted. One day I thought I should switch up my workouts.

After our first session, I knew I was in the right place. I realized that I hadn't been pushing myself or working out to the capacity I had in myself. I feel like you not only push me physically but mentally as well.

I definitely feel like I'm in better shape than I have been in a long time and have learned a lot about working out and being more healthy all around. I appreciate the level of expertise you bring to our time together, and I think that would be pretty hard to find somewhere else. Furthermore, it's fun to work with you.

I really can't think of working with anyone else.


I consider myself, a pretty independent person. There are very few people from whom I will happily take direction. George is one of the select few. Over the past few years, I've run Spartan races, transformed my body, and have more confidence than ever before. Without George's help, I wouldn't be half the badass I am today.

I have a very competitive spirit and I enjoy competing against others and being pushed to my limits. George is a great coach who has helped me realize that it's not just about the workouts and training, but that fitness is a way to self-discovery. Because of George, I have run adventure races, climbed extreme mountain tops, competed in CrossFit, and have done way more than I could have ever imagined.

I made a decision just before my 47th birthday to stop being fat and was very anxious and intimidated to hire a coach. I actually backed out several times before working with you. You've inspired me for over 2-1/2 years to work hard, stay focused, stay true to form and technique. It goes well beyond that of course. You're always willing to give personal instruction, take a real interest in my goals and adjust where needed. I wouldn't have been able to achieve my goals without your dedication to my results.

What can I say about George?I've been working with George for almost a year and he's a great coach--focused on form and safety and provides comprehensive coaching to develop strength, endurance, and flexibility.

Before I found George, I had been working out on my own and had plateaued without getting results. I was bored and didn't make good use of my workout time.

George crafted a customized program to achieve my goals within my abilities. I've gotten stronger, gained endurance, and improved my physique. I feel and see the difference and continue to improve.

I'm looking forward to more benefits from working with George. I recommend him highly without any hesitation.

George is the perfect coach for the busy guy who wants to be challenged in all areas of life. His diverse background allows him to be flexible and always keeps me on my path to ensure I live a well-rounded life. On top of it all, he is a great guy who is interested in my life and has become a great friend in the process. If you are looking to light a fire under your own health, George is your guy.

Dennis Goldstein

Before working with George I struggled not only to get out of bed each morning but also had great difficulty putting on a pair of pants without some pain involved. I can say with much satisfaction it was the best investment I've made in many years!I feel as though I'm 30 years of age again when it comes to those many daily movements we all take for granite as we get a little older. George is good natured, disciplined and most importantly he pushes to your potential.

David Keefe Basketball Coach

Over 2 years go, I developed arthritis and spinal stenosis in my lower back, causing a lot of pain, limiting my daily activities and the inability to get a restful nights sleep. I’ve had at least 5 spinal injections over the past 2 years to help reduce the swelling and also tried acupuncture to no avail. The physical therapy through the Spine Institute was very limited and not helping to reduce any pain and discomfort. In approximately 4 months your program has developed my body strength to help overcome the pain and frustration, and now my daily activities are pain-free.


When I first started George's coaching, I was a few pounds overweight and lacking in energy. I needed something to boost me up to the level I was at when I was working out regularly. With a healthy mix of running, George's workouts and coaching for nutrition I lost 7 lbs in 3 weeks without spending hours in the gym or going on a crash diet.

My energy levels have never been higher!

Andrew Howe

I have found George to be an extraordinary coach that has been able to show the versatility, intelligence, and discipline necessary to overcome my own personal limitations due to older injuries but not let me off the hook when it comes to training hard within those limitations. Since working with him I have lost 40 pounds, and recommend George for ANY of your fitness needs as he encourages you to push yourself to your goals…he will be right there with you.


I’m rapidly approaching my 60th birthday, and when I started with George I was inconsistently getting to the gym, in part due to a weak back that would tighten up occasionally if I pushed it.

After one phone call with George, we quickly zeroed in on a few key focus areas and went to work.

Every time I set foot in the gym after our initial consultation I started to feel and move better. I had never had a coach stay in contact with me consistently, which really helped me keep up my progress during my travel for work.

I’m very happy with the results of our work together – I’m far more confident with my back and had a great time on two ski trips this season. Finally, George is just a great guy – he's reliable, flexible, a good listener, energetic, and dedicated as well to his young family.

He is the best coach I’ve ever had and I highly recommend him to anyone who has an insane schedule and wants to get back in shape.
