Philip’s view on fitness is simple:  your body was designed so that you either use it or lose it, so go ahead and challenge your body without wrecking it.

Philip has been helping clients of all ages improve their health and fitness for over 20 years.  He is an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist and a licensed (City & County of San Francisco) and certified Shiatsu Therapist.

His basic training style is to help each client reach their individual strength and function potential.  Increased strength is typically accompanied by more athletic muscle tone, physique enhancements, better balance and an improved ability to perform sports and recreational activities.

Complementing his fitness and bodywork expertise, Philip is also a Tai Chi instructor with over 20 years of experience.

He trains clients either at their home or Synergy Fitness Studio (no monthly gym dues or membership fees) in San Francisco's Marina District.

When you train with Philip, he'll apply his extensive experience to create an exercise program that fits you personally.  He has been very successful in: 

  • Designing fitness-only training programs, whether it be for the newbie or seasoned gym user.  He'll identify key elements that determine the success of your routine and fine-tune them to maximize your results.  You'll get a fitness program that meets your needs, whether it's getting back in shape, improving core function or increasing strength and muscle tone.  
  • Designing fitness therapy training programs.  Along with his fitness expertise, he'll integrate bodywork therapy to help those clients who have stubborn or chronic orthopedic or flexibility issues.  Philip has safely and effectively used this type of programing for many clients over the years.
