Ted's diverse range of experiences in sports, fitness, and martial arts come from a deep desire for mastery of the human form in all physical endeavors. Over the years, Ted has worked with hundreds of clients and athletes in helping them achieve their goals, whatever they may be. He has worked with Olympic hopefuls, military (including Navy SEALs and Special Forces), law enforcement, firefighters, a Ninja Warrior contestant, and everyday people helping them do things they didn’t think were possible, such as losing up to 95 pounds, building muscle, regaining their mobility, running marathons, or just feeling good about their bodies again. Ted has worked as a wrestling coach, a boxing and martial arts instructor, a rock climbing instructor, a running coach, and fitness manager of a franchise gym. His personal achievements include earning a 13th degree black belt from Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (ninjutsu) grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi while living in Japan for 3 years, Naval Academy Brigade Boxing champion, regional boxing champion, and 5th at collegiate boxing nationals, and ran several marathons and triathlons, including Ironman Florida in Panama City (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run). There are few trainers and coaches that have as in-depth an understanding of how the human body works in as many different applications.
