Hi, I'm Phil

Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach

My mission is to educate, equip, and inspire people to pursue functional performance for a lifetime of wellness.

As an ISSA certified personal trainer, I am dedicated to providing quality fitness programs, mobility exercises, and exercise movements to help you move well.

My military service and immersive-style personal training education from the University of Health and Performance has positioned me to approach fitness from a realistic and sustainable standpoint.

I approach exercise programming with a multi-purpose intent that the movements have application to goals relevant to you both inside and outside of the gym.

With a background also as a private chef, I understand the deep connections we can create with food. If you desire, we are able to openly and honestly discuss attainable nutrition, food preparation, and mindfulness-related goals in a judgement-free way.

Contact me at Refuge Wellness to learn how, together, we can help you achieve long-term success in your health and fitness.

Introducing Personal Training at Refuge Wellness

Many people, like you, have given everything they have to everyone else. Your intentions are good, but the sacrifice has been your own health and fitness.

That's why we start with why. We believe that when you truly understand the why that drives you, you will realize that one of the most selfless things you can do is prioritize your personal health.

When you understand the why behind your fitness journey - the reason why you want to regain control of your health and wellness - the how and what become simple and more meaningful.

Achieving greatness means different things to different people, and that's why we offer individualized fitness programs tailored to your unique goals, abilities, and lifestyle.

Whether you are looking to lose weight, build muscle, reduce stress, or improve your overall health and wellness, we are here to help and support you every step of the way.

Personal Training at Refuge Wellness is more than just fitness programming and guided coaching - it's a journey of self-discovery and personal growth as you achieve your fitness goals, push your limits, and feel empowered to become the best version of yourself for others.

At Refuge Wellness, we take your health and wellness seriously. That's why our personal training programs are not only designed by expert trainers, but are also backed up by a licensed Physical Therapist. We work together to create customized fitness plans that are safe, effective, and tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Take the Next Step in Your Personal Fitness Journey...

We know life gets busy, which is why we will soon offer both online and in-person personal training to fit your schedule and location. Whether you join us at the gym or train from home, our certified trainers will design a customized program to help you reach your health and fitness goals.

Online training allows you to workout on your own time with video sessions led by your trainer. We will program exercises and help provide form feedback to motivate you to push harder each session.

In-person training at our partnership gyms in Clever, MO and Battlefield, MO gives you the benefits of one-on-one attention to ensure you're doing each move correctly.

Both options offer the guidance, encouragement and expertise you need to see real results. Clients can lose weight, increase strength and feel more energized thanks to the flexible training options.
