What’s your secret to starting the day off right?
Wake up early, hydrate, and a black coffee. I end each night by writing down my goals, tasks, and a to-do list so I have a clear plan every morning.

How do you honor your body and stay active?
Being the owner of four fitness studios, I stay active by teaching and participating in HIIT classes on the daily. I also take time outside of the gym to focus on my mobility, stability, and flexibility. I’m an avid golfer, flag football player, and skier.

Do you have a not-so-guilty pleasure?
I know it’s basic, but pizza and red wine!

Phil’s Wellness Picks:

BCAAs and Protein Powder

Wheatgrass Juice

I use my Vitamix daily—it’s the easiest way to get all my greens in.

What fuels your soul?
If you know me, you know I’m a huge sports guy that’s not afraid of a little competition. Challenges are my fuel! Whether it be physically, mentally, in business, or in relationships. I pride myself on staying educated and putting in the work! That’s the secret to growing as a person.

What motivates you to stay the path?
My family and loved ones motivate me to be the best version of myself. Running a fitness business allows me to educate my community in many ways—it’s so rewarding to see our members reach their goals!
