Fred has been involved with exercise ever since he became a member of The Charles Atlas Club when he was 10 years old. He is professionally certified by the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer since 1993.
He began training clients in the early 1980s at several of NYC's leading health clubs, including the Equinox and New York Health and Racquet Club. Fred began developing his Slow Burn system as a physical therapy aide at the Hospital for Joint Diseases Sports Medicine Center in NYC. In 1994, Fred co-founded a private physical therapy clinic located at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. As Director of clinical exercise, Fred ran the clinic until 1996. In June of 1998, after nearly 10 years of continuous refinements and application, Fred founded and established Serious Strength, a Slow Burn personal training and rehabilitative exercise center in New York City.
In an effort to provide the best nutritional guidance possible for his clients, Fred initiated an intellectual partnership with the authors of the New York Times bestselling book Protein Power, Drs. Michael and Mary Dan Eades and together authored The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution (Jan. 2003, Random House). It is currently in its ninth printing and is one of the bestselling fitness books in Random House history. His new book Strong Kids Healthy Kids teaches parents and their children how to lift weights safely and eat healthfully.
He co-authored (with Drs. Michael R. and Mary Dan Eades) “The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution” (2003). In 2008 his second book “Strong Kids, Healthy Kids” was published.
