My philosophy in life is simple, “Changing Lives, one step at a time.” I love being a personal trainer because I get to do just that. Every day I get to wake up and motivate, inspire, coach, heal, and improve someone’s quality of life. What more can a person ask for? Being a personal trainer is not just a job to me, it’s my purpose in life. I believe that anybody can achieve whatever they put their mind and heart into. When you set your mind and heart into something, anything can happen. The sky’s the limit. I believe that exercise should be a part of everyone’s life. Exercise can bring a new sense of life and happiness. It is my goal to bring that new sense of life and happiness through exercise in all my clients.
I specialize in corrective exercise, lifestyle management, and sports injury prevention. I work a lot with people that are experiencing joint or muscular pain, individuals with specific physiological goals (i.e. reduction of body fat, increased muscle size and definition), and recreational athletes that want to stay healthy and pain free.

Reaching deep and finding the desire to overcome the obstacles and challenges life has put in my path has inspired the passion in me to help others do the same. If I meet someone and even for just a moment leave that person feeling like they can achieve anything they put their minds to, then I have accomplished something great!
Having once been a professional athlete, I know what it takes to train hard and reach tough goals. With that knowledge, I am confident I can help you be in the best shape of your life! I am gifted with the ability to inspire people to push themselves and reach their own tough fitness goals.
I am open to all fitness levels and experience. I really love to work with athletes and I truly enjoy working with the general fitness population and watching them blossom into stronger, healthier and happier individuals.
