Frank is a former U.S. Army Paratrooper, a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA), and a Certified USAW Club Coach (Olympic Weightlifting). He is also a Crossfit Training Instructor and has completed Instructor Training with Kettlebell Concepts.
His personal story is not unlike the famous “Charles Atlas” story – you know, the guy who got sand kicked in his face and then learned how to get in shape and defend himself. When he was a kid, he was the classic “short, fat kid” and paid the price. At only 10 years of age, he was jumped by four kids with knives, and almost killed.
As a result, he decided to devote my life to learning the secrets of strength and fitness. He has spent decades in a variety of martial arts, and even established a full-contact fighting club back in the 1970s, long before the Ultimate Fighting Championship or popularity of Mixed Martial Arts. He has studied personal defense and kettlebells with Saulius “Sonny” Puzikas, a former Soviet Special Forces (Spetsnaz) soldier. He has learned numerous fitness programs from a variety of cultures (especially The USA, Russia, Israel, China, and Japan) and world-renowned experts.
Working together with these experts, he has taken these many experiences and discoveries and created an alternative to the standard, boring gym workout. He’s refined them so that they provide regular people – of all fitness levels – with the most energizing and unique workout of their lives.
Best of all, this workout provides the kind of real-world strength and endurance required to: respond in any kind of self-defense situation, take action in an emergency (e.g., carry an unconscious victim to safety), be more effective in jobs requiring manual labor, recover from injuries, and function more effectively in everyday life.
