While studying Kinesiology at the University of Maryland, College Park Max became fascinated with the inner workings of the human body. As a way to study for an exercise physiology class, Max became obsessed with practicing hot yoga, where he would contemplate the inner workings of the human body. Max began teaching hot yoga classes and developed a deep interest in structural alignment, energy, and bodywork. After nearly a decade of teaching yoga, Max enrolled in Massage Therapy school and specialized in a fascial manipulation technique called Structural Integration. Structural integration gave Max an extensive education about proper movement, balance, posture and alignment. Max teaches exercise with a unique approach, pulling from his background in yoga and structural bodywork. Max believes all movement should work toward balance, that good quality breathing should always be present, and that bodily comfort and joy should underlie all fitness regimens. Fitness is one of many keys to health. We can all live better, more powerful lives if we treat ourselves right.

Craig has been feeding his love for personal training and assisting clients in their fitness regimens for over 10 years. He earned a degree from Howard University in Nutrition. His personal training certificates include National Academy of Sports Medicine, as well as certificates in Kettle Bell Training, TRX Suspension Training, and Functional Movement Screen. His love for activity and fitness has included years of track and field, basketball, and baseball while growing up, and has continued into adulthood with his participation in several local D.C. tennis clubs. While he has trained every type of client available, his specialty is the senior population. His belief is that while you may be in your golden years, and you may not be as fast or strong as the younger person, you are definitely still in the fitness game!

His philosophy and approach towards training is, as cliché as it may sound, in all endeavors including training, all goals can be achieved with hard work and dedication. It starts in the mind and works its way down. Sacrifices and smalls steps are needed to reach your goal, but each step should be taken one at a time. Put in the hard work, gradually progress and reap the benefits and the rewards that come with it!
