Valentino has trainers all over the world---so how did he find you here in New York?
I started working with Valentino through a friend of his who I've worked with for a year. He completely transformed his body and recommended me.

Were you nervous the first time you trained him? Yes. Valentino is an icon. But when I walked into his door, I then remembered he was a regular person with needs like everyone else, and we had an amazing session together. I kept it simple and real, and he kept up with the training. His staff was pretty amazed, because he cancelled with his (former) trainer quite often---but never with me. He was always on time, and he saw results---he put in 100%.
