Growing up I always enjoyed playing sports including basketball, volleyball, track, and soccer. Because I was an active athlete, I knew my career would be somewhere in the fitness area. Throughout my studies, I have learned how fitness contributes immensely to our everyday lifestyle. What drives me into the fitness world is helping people achieve an active lifestyle so they can live and explore the world independently. It is important to maintain fitness to prevent reoccurring or future injuries. In addition, keeping up fitness and an active lifestyle helps maintain stress levels making people feel happier and healthier. My advice for individuals is to not fear fitness. Fitness is for everyone regardless of where you are on the fitness scale. You do not have to be in shape just to train with a trainer. A trainer is here to help anyone achieve their goals and aid them along their fitness journey.
The origin for my passion in fitness all started with sports performance. I have played competitive level sports since i was 10 years old, and as competition increased, so did the need to optimize my functional output. I was more inclined towards calisthenic and sport specific exercise regiments at first, but when i hit the college level i realized how important a proper strength and conditioning protocol was. This lead to me performing better, feeling better, looking better, and in the summer of my freshman year i got certified and I have never looked back. I love to train clients of all different needs and backgrounds, with the goal of always showing them that with the right amount of dedication and hard work that anything can be achieved and goals been be met and surpassed. My advice to all pursuing something in health and fitness is one simple work…. DISCIPLINE. If you have that on your side, with the right knowledge and guidance from your local fitness expert (me), ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!
