Austin has an extensive background in sports, ranging from decathlon in high school to rowing at UC San Diego, where he studied Human Biology and gained extensive knowledge about his two major focus areas with his clients – diet/nutrition and how these intersect with exercise. Instead of the clinical route, Austin decided to go into personal training to build an integrated approach incorporating both the nutrition and exercise programs of his clients. To enhance and broaden his knowledge base, he obtained a Strength and Conditioning Specialist certificate (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, additional nutrition education through UCSD, and the Precision Nutrition certification, among others. Collectively, these complementary sets of knowledge have become the basis of his personal training and nutrition/lifestyle adherence programs.
Currently, Austin’s training philosophy focuses on the basics, done well: move often and well, and train efficiently, effectively, and functionally. He adds to this a fundamental commitment to a diet program customized to work with defined lifestyle constraints and goals that enables clients to reap the rewards from their sustained effort.
