Although I was a high level
At the age of 16, I finally noticed that I was built differently than the other athletes & considered how much better

athlete in high school I was also over weight as a teenager. of an athlete I could be if I were in better shape aka lost weight & became stronger.

Thus, I hired my first Personal Trainer at the age of 16 and continued to work with her throughout my collegiate career. Working with a trainer elevated my sports performance, improved my quality of life and elevated my self- confidence as an adolescent & young adult. Working with a trainer changed my life & inspired me to become a trainer so I could change the lives of others just as my trainer did for me.

Over the last 8 years I have continually immerse myself in various fields of competitive sports so that I may not only learn different techniques that I could apply to my clients, but to challenge myself both mentally and physically.

I believe what makes a great coach is someone who not only loves what they teach, but fully understands what their clients will go through from start to finish in order for them to reach their fullest potential. By actively competing in the sports I love myself (bodybuilding & powerlifting) , and furthering my education, I have created many skills to help further my clients goals.

I also really enjoy getting down and dirty and pushing myself and leading others in OCR events, Endurance events (including 12-36 hour events) Ragnar Team Trail Running & Go-Ruck.
