I created SaltWrap to bring together the most practical ideas in therapeutic sports nutrition, corrective exercise, and functional fitness — with the goal of keeping you (and myself) strong, mobile and built to last.
I've worked as an A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer, Orthopedic Exercise Specialist, and nutritional supplement formulator.
But more importantly — I've spent most of my life battling injuries, joint pain, and just being plain beat up. So I know what it's like to struggle toward fitness goals.
SaltWrap is here to push you through injuries, setbacks and perceived physical limitations. To a place beyond what you think you're capable of. Sign up here to stay in the loop.

Product development is a craft I'm passionate about and take seriously.
In addition to working directly with health clients, I've spent the last 10+ years researching and developing nutrition products for some of the biggest health retailers in the world.
For me, it's not about jumping on the bandwagon of the latest health craze or disrupting the supplement industry. It's about developing research-backed, novel solutions to problems that plague our clients. My sports nutrition experience includes:
Research and interpretation of scientific journal articles
Sourcing and vetting of raw material (ingredient) suppliers
Formulating safe, science-backed nutrient blends (including review of potential herb/food interactions) using Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) ingredients
Working with independent testing laboratories for product accuracy, purity, and safety
GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) system management
Adverse Event (AE) and Product Recall procedure management
Before starting SaltWrap, I also spent several years managing retail brick-and-mortar nutrition businesses. No other professional experience has taught me more.
I learned about the nuances of coaching and behavior change. About empathy. Adapting solutions to individual client needs.
Most of all, working face-to-face with people showed me the human side of this business. That what we do directly impacts our clients' quality of life. And that we have an obligation to help, not hurt.
Bottom line: if I recommend a product, exercise or technique — I've thoroughly vetted it for safety and efficacy. And in virtually every case I use it myself.
In 2021, I published Built from Broken: A Science-Based Guide to Healing Painful Joints, Preventing Injuries, and Rebuilding Your Body.
This book is the culmination of my experiences in corrective exercise, nutrition programming, nutraceutical R&D, and personal training.
After its public launch, Built from Broken quickly grabbed the #1 spot in several categories on Amazon.com, including Exercise Injuries & Rehabilitation, Pain Management, Osteopathy, and Stretching.
Less than a year after its published date, Built from Broken had sold more than 50,000 copies and received three independent publishing awards, including the 2022 Indie Excellence Award Winner (#1 in Fitness), Indie Reader Award, and Independent Publisher Book Award.
On a weekly basis, I am blown away by the stories I hear from readers of how Built from Broken has helped them conquer years' old injuries, resolve pain, and regain pain-free movement capability.
Why am I telling you all this?
Because I want you to know this isn't just a hobby for me. Nor was SaltWrap created overnight. It was decades in the making. I believe, wholeheartedly, in the healing power of therapeutic sports nutrition. Writing the book was my way of putting these ideas to the ultimate test. And each day, the fundamental principles that underpin Built from Broken and all the nutrition formulations in the SaltWrap store are put to the test again — as we share them with you.
Once you see how our system works, you'll never look at supplementation the same.
Thank you for connecting with SaltWrap (and reading this far). I can't wait to show you what we have in store next.
