What My Clients Say



Autumn Cleveland KyFitness Coach Competition Coach
I had originally hired Steve in 2010 to work with me for the Kentucky Muscle. He introduced me to new training methods for a few months of my off-season, and he really impressed me with his knowledge when it came time to get into competition condition. We communicated a lot via email, but we met in person often to do body fat assessments and to discuss the plan in detail.

In 2012, I decided to try doing my own competition prep, but it was because of everything that Steve had taught me that I was successful that year. I learned so much from him when we worked together previously and he still gave me advice and suggestions to help me do my best, even while I was experimenting on my own. I had a great year of competing, and won my height class in the Open Figure at the Northern Kentucky Championships (2012) then continued to NPC Nationals (2012).

Now, with some experience under my belt, I have chosen Steve again to guide me to my absolute best package this year for the 2014 Kentucky Derby Festival Championships and then Junior USA's. For the last 4 years, Steve has been my trainer, my coach, my mentor, and I consider him a guru in this sport. I chose him as my coach because he is professional, realistic, and honest. Steve also constantly stays on top of current research pertaining to exercise science and competition prep methods.

One of the most important things I notice with Steve, is that he does not just hand out the same protocol to his athletes. He understands that individuals have different needs and he tailors their prep down to a "T." He also uses great judgment when it might be time to "break the rules" or try a different approach and he does it with confidence. I have always felt that no matter what my goal is at the time, that he actually takes the time and energy to figure out what works for ME.

Even more important, he respects that I am a natural athlete and doesn't push shortcuts or "enhancements." Steve has never steered me wrong and I am honored to have learned so much from such an intelligent person in this sport. I know that teaming up with him is one of the smartest thing I could do for myself, as an athlete, and I can't wait to see what happens in the future!
