Hi my name is Barry and I am originally from Los Angeles, California. I grew up in a very athletic family – my father was a martial arts instructor and body builder. Even as a young child, I was very active in sports. My happy childhood and teenage years were shaped by martial arts, and I was able to achieve some regional success in Tae kwon Do, Muay Thai and Boxing.

I am a Martial Artist and instructor from North Hollywood. Muay Thai and Boxing are my passions – and is where I truly feel at home. Over the years, I have competed in a wide range of tournaments in numerous Muay Thai and Tae Kwon Do competitions.

For the past 14 years, I have been working as an independent professional trainer. I enjoy every minute of it and the freedom of being my own boss. I can already look back on many happy hours during which I was able to help my clients reach the goals they had set for themselves.

Through Martial Arts, I have become very knowledgeable in other areas of fitness such as Personal Training and Fitness, Cross Fit, Strength and Conditioning, Running, Cardio, Weight Loss, and Nutrition/Diet Managment.
