In case you’re wary of what you might get from a consultation with me, here’s where I keep testimonials of people just like you wanting to optimize their training and make solid gains without the “30LBS IN 30 DAYS!!” hype
From Aaron in Toronto, Ontario, Canada:
I’m a challenging case -ectomorph, hard gainer, not athletically gifted. I have spent thousands of dollars on trainers and have tried various exercise/nutritional programs. In my experience, trainers are well-meaning but not science-based at best, and dishonest just to make a sale at worst. With a buyer beware attitude I found out about Skyler. With him I never felt like I was being sold anything -no flashy promises and guarantees, just straightforward, honest advice based on his wealth of expertise. I don’t have the science background that he does, but he explains things in a way that everyone can understand. He is grounded in an evidence/science based approach, but doesn’t just slavishly follow the latest studies; he draws from his professional experience and incorporates his own critical thinking and educated guesses. I appreciate his honesty and humility, he doesn’t pretend to have all the answers. And the proof is in the results: after a brief consultation with Skyler I experienced significant gains that I thought were unattainable. I have sought out his advice from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I will continue to do so for a long time, I just wish I could find a trainer like him in my own city!
I am an orthopedic Physical Therapist with 35 years of experience in rehabilitating patients with musculoskeletal trauma or post operative conditions that require them to regain motion, motor control, strength and proprioception. I have lifted weights since I was 16 years old, I am now 56, and have used a variety of techniques and approaches over the years always looking for the “holy grail”. I originally had an interest in the Super Slow movement, read all of their manuals, became even more interested after Doug McGuff M.D.’s book, “Body By Science” and began experimenting with this workout strategy 2 years ago. I decided to consult with Skyler after reading his blogs and watching his videos on “youtube” in order to see if I was on track, or what changes I might make to further my workout productivity and efficiency. I didn’t really know what to expect or exactly what I was looking for. I met with Skyler on a Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and for the next hour was blown away with his extensive knowledge of exercise and movement physiology as well as his ability, in a short period of time, to hone in on techniques that might help me move my workouts further along, faster. His instructions were clear, concise and easily implemented in my routines.I am at a point in my life where time is precious and I want and need to get the most out of my workout efforts…time with Skyler was definitely time well spent.
