My passion for fitness started 5 years ago. After injuring my shoulder
in an accident, I realized how important it is to understand one’s body. Therefore,
I believe in training through education, in which my clients have a better
understanding of their own bodies and the mechanics involved in the training.
My style depends on building trust, meeting my clients where they are
and coaching them to develop their own discipline. It’s very important to me to
eliminate any pressure that people usually feel with their trainers. My specialty
includes resistance training, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), and
functional body weight training.

Positivity sparks success in everything
we do. High energy and fun is how I bring this positivity to fitness. While
group fitness was my start, I thrive working one on one with individuals to
reach specific goals. It is never too late to join the party and I enjoy
sharing my passion for health and wellness with people looking to start a new
exercise program or reach a new level of athletic performance. I am always
looking for new challenges and to try something new, so I like to introduce
variety into my sessions. My specialties include endurance training, sport
specific training, and weight loss.

My goal as a personal trainer is to help my clients feel good and be comfortable in their own skin. Fitness doesn't have to be hard and boring in order for it to work, which is why I try to integrate fun and creative exercises into my sessions. If I can get my clients to
leave with a smile on their face, I know that I have done my job! My specialties are cardiovascular improvement, flexibility, and female fitness.

I'm a licensed personal trainer with a background in nutrition and wellness cooking. My own struggle with weight and health for much of my life inspired me to pursue a degree in nutrition and attend culinary school focusing in a plant-based diet and healing modalities. Along the way, I realized health and wellness come from more than what you eat - what you do with your body is just as important as what you put into it. I want my energy and contagious passion for fitness to inspire you to reach your goals and have fun doing it!

Fitness and healthy living are lifestyle choices that inspire me to help others achieve
their own personal goals. I have worked for years with youth and high school basketball players, but I love connecting with all kinds of people and finding out what motivates them. The most important part of fitness for me is finding a personal reason to reach for that goal and then to have someone to push you farther than you thought possible. I have experience in sports conditioning, body weight, and at-home styles of training to offer and incorporate.

Seeing how much of a positive impact that physical wellness has had on
my life, I actively seek to help others achieve such levels of happiness. After
injuring my knee in high school, I endured many hours of rehabilitation and
strengthening exercises. As my sporting career came to an end, I was forced to
find other ways to stay healthy and happy; this is where I found myself in the
world of personal training. Pursuing a more active and healthy lifestyle can
improve all other components of wellness naturally. I choose to help others
better themselves because I believe that everyone deserves to find their own
happiness; and I truly believe that starts with physical activity. Whether it
is body functioning exercises, weight-loss programs, power lifting, stretching,
or simply talking with a friend while walking on the treadmill, I find joy in
helping others better themselves physically and mentally. My specialties
include, but are not limited to, functional training, weight-loss,
rehabilitation, and speed and agility training.
