Daily Flow Fitness is a holistic approach to fitness. Cole draws the best elements from several types of training and pain management styles to create Daily Flow (breathing and bracing, corrective exercise/activation techniques, traditional strength and conditioning, tempo work, myofascial release). Our mission is to enhance your ability to “flow”, by training your body and mind to work together as one. Listen to your body.
Cole was born in San Francisco, raised in Daly City, and has a twin. From an early age he was always drawn to fitness and working out.
It started with a curiosity for movement and human potential. Now Cole strives to help people reach their potential by nurturing the body, mind, and soul. Cole is an artist and it shows in every workout. Extremely knowledgeable, and a fitness generalist Cole specializes in movement/athletic performance and pain management.
Cole pushes you to the edge but seems to have a “sixth sense” for when you are at your limits. Working within your limits is important in order to have consistent improvement while staying injury-free.
Not taking health and fitness seriously, early on, Cole found himself continuously dealing with injuries. Each injury was an important lesson learned the hard way. After 3 ACL injuries in (’07,’09,’14), a 5th degree A/C separation (’07), and 2 concussions, he finally decided to follow a path of health, fitness, and helping others.
Performance enhancement can be for anyone. Whether you are an aspiring professional athlete, or just trying to hold on to your last bit of athleticism. Training hard can create aches and pains, develop imbalances and compensations that can easily turn into injury. Daily Flow utilizes corrective exercise techniques to actively fight/correct any imbalances. Cole is a Neuromuscular Massage Therapist (NMT). He combines that disciplines’ techniques with a fitness plan to maintain natural ranges of motion and body awareness.

First Taste of Flow
Moved to Lake Tahoe, lost 40 lbs in one summer. As a lifelong athlete, I knew I was skilled, but finally had the body to go with the skill. First real taste of "flow".
Right A/C separation. Started riding again in less than 2 weeks.
1st ACL + lateral meniscus tear on my left knee while snowboarding. I'd recently lost a lot of weight, was counting on my youth, and was paying no attention to actual fitness, nutrition, or sleep. This could possibly have been related to a shoulder injury from 6 weeks prior. Silver lining: I started to be more aware of my fitness.
2nd ACL + medial meniscus tear in the right knee. Probably caused by imbalances and compensations developed over time after a serious injury.
Started attending National Holistic Institute for massage therapy. Built a huge base of knowledge in anatomy, physiology, and massage in other cultures. NHI is where I first learned about "flow", and started to realize how to overcome my snowboarding injuries.
Graduated from the National Holistic Institute in Advanced Neuromuscular Massage Therapy with a 4.0 GPA
