Bodybuilding | Physique |  Figure | Bikini | Fitness

Whether you’re competing for the first time or seeking to improve on your previous best condition, I can coach you to your goal.

As a successful bodybuilding competitor myself, I know what it takes to achieve ultimate stage readiness. And, as an NPC judge, I can show you how to present yourself to the judging panel with maximum impact.

Dieting, training, posing/presentation… I’ll cover everything you need to do to show up on stage at your best!



This is the “make-or-break” aspect of contest prep.  If your diet isn’t on point, you won’t be either.

You can’t starve yourself into contest shape.  To diet properly, you have to know how many calories to start with, and how to properly arrange your macronutrients (protein, carbs, fats).  You have to know how and when to lower (and RAISE!) calories and rearrange your macronutrient ratios.  And you have to know how and when to incorporate cheat meals or refeeds.

It’s truly a science, and the vast majority of competitors get it wrong as evidenced by the relatively few who step on stage in truly awesome condition.

I’ll take the guesswork out of dieting by telling you exactly what, how much, and when to eat from the beginning of your prep until the moment you take the stage.



Contest training can be tricky.  You want to go “all-out,” but continuously doing so as your calories drop closer to the show can backfire.  Your goal at this point is to maintain the muscle you’ve already built. You’re not going to grow while on a contest diet. Nor can you “carve” definition into your muscles with certain exercises or techniques.  Definition comes through dieting and (to a lesser extent) cardio.

Contest training should reflect these realities and serve to maintain your existing muscle without overly depleting your energy.

If you’re not sure how to do that, I can show you.

“Peak Week”

No aspect of contest prep is filled with more bizarre rituals, “bro-science,” dangerous practices and outright bullshit than the final-week countdown.

Competitors hear others discussing all kinds of outlandish methods for handling water  (“Do I stop drinking 3 days before the show?”), sodium (“No salt for the last 6 weeks, right?”) carbs  (“When do I carb load…when…when…when?”) and other last-minute minutia.

The truth is, if you’re ready, you’re ready.  And if you’re not, no amount of crazy, pseudo-scientific voodoo will make you ready.

The final week is the icing on the cake… it gives you that last little bit of “polish” that signifies a stage-ready physique.  And, rather than being complicated, it’s all disarmingly simple.

 I’ll tell you exactly what to do.

 No guesswork, no “bro-science”…. Just 100% tried-and-true, scientifically validated instructions.


This is the time for growing and improving your weak points.  Too many competitors, though, “bulk up” and gain too much fat during the offseason.  Then they have to diet so hard for their next prep that they lose all the new muscle they labored for.

I can set you up with an offseason training/eating plan that will help you add muscle while keeping lean.


The way you conduct/hold yourself onstage can definitely affect your placing.  As an NPC judge, I see many competitors who place lower than they should because they don’t show their physiques properly.  A change in arm position… a slight twist of the hips here… a nuance there… it can make a difference.

Since I know exactly what the judges are looking for, I can show you how to display the results of your hard work with maximum impact.

What My Clients Say


When I first met Steve I honestly didn't know if I ever wanted to compete. I was terrified of anyone even seeing me outside of my baggy hoodies and even bigger sweat pants. I was even more terrified for Steve to look at me for the first time.. I imagined him saying I was uncoachable or too far gone.. Instead, I was told with proper discipline and consistency he could and would make me into a powerhouse Women's Physique competitor. I just shook my head and smiled, not believing a damn word he said. Steve believed in me and my potential more than I believed in myself.

Fast forward two years later to 2018... 3 competitions in and 2 Overall titles and national qualifications in women's physique. I'm officially a champion! Steve kept his word to me and I kept my word to him… I would give him my all and he would never give up on me. I have no idea what the future has in store for me but with how things have gone thus far I foresee a Women’s Physique Division pro card coming our way. I'm utterly grateful to Steve and the amount of hard work he has not only put into building my body, but my mind as well. I went from feeling like a nobody to realizing I'm going to be a major contender in this sport.
