TEAM SKIP Approved Trainers

I have hand-picked and carefully chosen trainers that I have mentored for at least 2 years.  Each trainer listed below understands my training, nutritional and supplementation philosophies, and they have demonstrated their efficacy as a trainer/prep guy with numerous clients.  Even while working with clients, the TEAM SKIP Approved Trainers will still consult with me as to decisions that are made with their clients.  I am 100% confident in the abilities of these trainers or I would not put my name on them.
