According to his website, the progression of his career began at the Jack La Lanne Fitness Center in Little Neck, New York, where he found part time employment as a fitness instructor. Phil's knack for bringing about results in others soon gained local fame. Working his way through the ranks he became National Director for the Bally's Health Club chain.

Phil explains it as an awakening, the moment the awareness hit: "I was on an airplane watching an overweight woman circling an advertisement for a so-called fat burner when I realized I had taken a wrong turn. With my executive position, expense account, and "Director" title, I was no longer helping people get fit. I was helping health clubs make money!"

Days later, Phil resigned and began his own personal training company in South Florida. He was soon receiving unprecedented acclaim for his ability to "transform" both ordinary people and celebrities!

Phil developed a unique strategy for tying together health club profitability and member satisfaction. He's become a "guru" for personal trainers and fitness professionals. His NAVAQA System of Influence made him the secret weapon of ethical health club owners looking for a profit edge and he's called upon from all corners of the world."
