I am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine. I have been training since 2008. I specialize in weight loss, functional fitness, running programs, and strength training. I live and breathe fitness and health. I am constantly searching for more knowledge. I truly believe that each individual is different and what works for one person may not work for the next. You can count on me to give you up to date scientific knowledge and then help to guide you through your journey to the healthiest you.
For as long as I can remember I have been active whether it was team sports or fun with friends and family. Then came high school, and in order to stay active you had to be good, and then you had to make the team. I was not good, and never made any of the teams. This turned me away from sports and straight into cigarettes, alcohol, and whatever else my friends were doing. Even the general destruction of body couldn’t stop me from staying fit. I would do crunches, and squats and dance in my room.
I smoked for 10 years and thank god, I finally decided to quit. I’d always wanted to run, but since my lungs were like charcoal, I couldn’t make it for longer than about 3-5 minutes without stopping. So after 5 months without a cigarette I decided to sign up for a marathon (almost everyone I told thought I was nuts). For my training I did hours of research. I couldn’t get enough information. Then I started thinking….. “I would love to help other people realize what their bodies are capable of.” I had always wanted to be a personal trainer but knew that I wouldn’t be able to do it as a smoker. So now that I was smoke free, there was nothing to hold me back. While still in training for the marathon I began studying for a personal training certification. I finished the marathon in 4 hours and 17 minutes and a few months later earned my ACSM Certification.
I am looking forward to helping you realize your full potential!
