Love for Personal Training
Herb began his training career with professional athletes. But it was his own mother’s interest in improving her health and fitness level that prompted him to bring the proven, science-based personal training approach to anyone interested in being in the best shape they can be for their everyday life. Herb has worked with everyone from professional athletes interested in upping their game to someone needing to recuperate from an injury to moms interested in keeping fit and active. Whatever your fitness goal, Herb’s technical understanding of the human body’s function and his genuine interest in helping you achieve your goals make him your ideal personal trainer.
Herb received his certification as a personal trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a global leader in providing evidence-based certifications and advanced credentials to health and fitness professionals. He also has a personal training certification from APEX in 1999. And although Herb wouldn’t offer services without these industry certifications, it’s his in-depth knowledge of the science of the human body that make him the trainer that will take you and your fitness to the next level.
Education and Background Experience
Prior to his work as a certified personal trainer, Herb spent six years in the Arena Football League and was a member of the Arizona Rattlers 1997 championship team. Before joining the Rattlers, Herb played for the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos and the National Football League’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who drafted him out of college.
Herb received his bachelor’s degree in communications from Northern Arizona University in 1989 where he played football and ran track.
