Biceps shot!

When someone says, "Show me your muscles!"

It`s not a call to see your hamstrings, your lats or your delts, it`s all about your biceps!

And I remember having arms that were just painfully thin and the first day, after years of training that someone said, "Show me your muscles", and they were actually impressed by what they saw.

It took years.

Not weeks, not months, years!

And during those years there was always the sense of not getting anywhere, as progress as a natural athlete is always slower than you might expect (especially as a teenager!)

But I hung in there and the lesson behind it is to always keep going!!!

Too many fail to reach their potential or turn to drugs out of a sense that they don`t have what it takes, when it`s really a matter of needing more work and more time.

So stay the course, believe in the Path, know that I believe in you and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Build Muscle In Less Time!

For the past 34 years I have been training with what I call Naturally Intense High Intensity Training- with workouts lasting 10, 15 to max 20 minutes just three times a week.

To many it may sound like some form of maintenance training or something that just works for me and it isn`t!

It`s what helped me go from being a skinny teenager to being able to compete successfully as a natural bodybuilder, but more importantly, it`s helped hundreds of men and women realize their goals over the past three decades of my career as a trainer.

It`s groundbreaking as the number one reason for people not training is LACK OF TIME- and with this form of training, time is no longer an issue!

If you would like to learn more visit my website, check out my YouTube channel or simply reach out, as I am always more than happy to talk about it!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work and as always, Excelsior!! #naturallyintense

High Intensity Training: 80lb Kevin Flyes for 6 Reps!

Last set and going all out on this flye variation that my clients like to call "Kevin flyes."

It starts in the press position and you push up while rotating the dumbbells so they end with palms facing you.

Unlike a regular flye, it maintains tension in your chest muscles throughout the movement and also creates a strong contraction in your sternal pectorals.

This was the last set and I fought hard for the last one!

Give it a try next time you train chest and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

You Don`t Need Protein Right After A Workout To Build Muscle!

Over the course of almost 36 years of training, I have seldom ever had protein within a half an hour of training.

I don`t consume protein shakes, and for the four years that I did when I was having them immediately after training, my notes revealed absolutely no increases in strength or muscle size compared to when I was not using them.

It`s a myth that goes a long way in selling protein shakes and protein bars, but the reality is that you can make gains as long as you are getting the protein you need. (Which, by the way, isn`t an exorbitant amount!)

Thanks for watching and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Next Time Someone Says You Are On Steroids Watch This!

It`s a sad state of affairs as a lot of natural athletes have to deal with constant accusations of drug use, when they are in fact lifetime natural and what they have achieved isn`t necessarily unattainable by most people who just put in the work and time.

People change all the time, and there are so many examples of it around us, but somehow when it comes to fitness, there`s a sense that we are destined to remain the same unless there is some degree of chemical enhancement.

That`s a dangerous mindset as it makes it more likely for people to consider using steroids and other potentially harmful drugs, and more importantly, it hinders us from believing in ourselves and our own innate potential.

We are capable of far more than we realize, and if you make some progress and someone asks if you are using drugs, watch this video and I hope it can give you some perspective.

Stay the path, know that I believe in you and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Yes, very often it takes more time to get to the gym than it does to do the entire workout!


Many of our clients never set foot in a gym before working with us, and the great part about one-on-one training like this is that the training intensity is based on what you can do. We evaluate where you are and formulate the workout based on your individual fitness level, and it’s a method proven safe for all ages. As for those with pre-existing injuries, the wide variety of exercises allow us to always be able to find a way to help work around and rehabilitate almost any injury. Over the past 27 years we have worked with just about every injury possible and we are always able to tailor the high intensity workouts accordingly.


We primarily train out of the Complete Body Gym at 22 West 19th Street, New York, NY 10011 (between 5th and 6th Avenues)or we can come to you. The gym is one of the best equipped gyms in New York City and complimentary gym membership is included in all of our packages!However we understand that some prefer training in the privacy of their own home or apartment gym, in which case we send a trainer out to you!


Our dietary guides are designed specifically for you and your goals. Whether you are an omnivore, vegan, vegetarian or something in between, we will create an eatign plan to make sure you get the most out of your workouts! The approach calls for a natural food based diet with an emphasis on minimally or unprocessed foods. We have custom apps that you can use on your phone to track your food intake if you are so inclined and we offer 24 hour support for any questions and to guide you through the process.


Absolutely! We offer a risk free first session where you will meet with us, have a short dietary consultation and experience our high intensity training 10 minute workout! We are so confident that you will love it that if you don’t think it will work for you we will refund the cost of the session. No questions asked! But in 27 years it hasn’t happened yet as EVERYONE who tries it, loves it!!!
