“After injuring my back, I missed an entire ski season. Various doctors had me try physical therapy, acupuncture, spinal traction, massage, and injections. Nothing worked. Feeling hopeless, I started training with Frank on a strong recommendation from a coworker. From our first session, Frank helped change my mindset around my pain, while improving my strength and mobility. Within just weeks of training, my pain was significantly lower. I returned to skiing and soon after began ski touring and surfing for the first time. Now at age 38, I feel stronger than ever. Frank not only helped fix my back pain, he inspired me to set new athletic goals that I previously did not think were possible for me. These athletic endeavors have brought immense joy to my life. I believe strongly in Frank’s methods and would recommend him to anyone. For Christmas this year, I am giving the gift of sessions with Frank to my parents.”
“I trained with Frank in preparation for my snowboard trip to Alaska. Frank’s fitness program is by far the best training I have ever done. He is thoughtful and caring, explaining the how and why of each movement. His exercise program, to me, is about mobility and body weight, so your joints, muscles and tendons do not feel the strain that I have felt working out in a gym or cross fit class. I arrived in Alaska with a whole new mindset and body, ready to shred some of the most intense terrain on the planet. I am eternally grateful for Frank, and still to this day, use FranklyFitness as a model for my workout routines.“
