Pittsburgh, PA 15203

I am a former 10 yr Professional Soccer Player with an M.S/Sport Psychology & B.S./Exercise Science. Throughout my entire career in soccer I always worked in the off-seasons @ a fitness club, not only practicing, but preaching my experience and education. My goal was to continue with the ever-changing trends and knowledge of fitness in the future. Since retiring due to multiple knee and leg injuries, I have continued to train others and also manage and direct at clubs throughout Pittsburgh. I have also been a collegiate soccer coach for the past 10 years, refining student-athletes on and off the field and in the gym. Most recently I have become an avid triathlete and continue to train and compete and inspire with discipline and by example. Check out my website(s) listed for many more details.

    I am having a hard time using the contact link, so I thought I'd use the comment box for contacting you. It keeps telling me I typed the wrong spam code. Frustrating. You can delete form comment when read. ;-)

    Dear Ed,

    I am the owner of Fitness for Life. I am looking for instructors to teach various classes in Churchill at an Area Civic Center. I wanted to tap into IDEA and ACE instructors who are near the area who might be interested in teaching a class or be able to pass on to local colleagues. We are trying to put together a comprehensive group of programs. We are looking at the following areas: senior programming of any kind in the mornings, children’s fitness programs after school, evening or weekend, then classes such yoga, Core or Pilates based classes, band, tubing ball classes, Zumba, belly dancing, hip hop, aqua classes-summer only nutrition, food programs or other formats that can be sustained without permanent equipment. I’d appreciate any follow-up and certainly you may pass on to others.

    Thank you for your time,

    In Health,
