Personal Trainer Overview

Having you reach or achieve your desired goals is my duty. No matter how small the progression is, may it be 5 more pounds or 1 more rep, that extra effort still counts in my book. A progression is a progression. I take great satisfaction observing the expression on my clients exhausted, but joyous face seeing them attack and accomplish an exercise or weight they didn't imagine was possible. I see that and I go, "My job was fulfilled, for that part, on to the next." Before any of this happens, I offer a FREE assessment to really get to know and understand who you are and what you want. Right when we're done, I offer a FREE 1-on-1 session for you to get the experience to feel what it's like to work with a personal trainer. I make sure the assessment day isn't just a sit and talk day, I actually put you to work as well. To go along with 1-on-1 training, I am a class instructor and I do group/couple training. I am ready when you're ready!

Training Philosophy

"Today is a new beginning!" Is a motto that I live by. It's never too late to become healthy! Even if it's toward one specific goal. Through that one goal, you'll still target other components of the human body, so it becomes a full circle. My programs will focus on your goals you want to achieve. My motivation comes from attitude, that you're ready to go to work! Getting started is the easiest, but finishing is the hardest. I am your coach, your guidance, your extra push to help you get results!

I've always been an active and hyper kid. I've participated in many school sports and recreational. I've dabbled in basketball, football, track, tennis, volleyball, softball/baseball, and soccer. The two main sports that introduced in weight training was track and football. Track was more my forte being a sprinter and long jumper. Most of my life until college, I always considered myself fit, which I was, but more skinny fit. Didn't have much muscle, normal body fat percentage, and poor endurance. Going through college and learning the proper mechanics, physiology, and methods into changing one's body intrigued me. It's amazing how through the right routine of training and strict diet, you can see a significant difference. After I started to change myself, hitting weights I never thought I would be able to lift, I knew this is what I wanted to continue doing. If I can change myself and I change others as well. I was around 145-150lb college years and working at Snap Fitness. One year later, I am 160lb within the single digits of body fat percentage and putting up significant amount of weight for my body size. I take pride in my new PR's: 365lb for deadlift, 315 for squats, 250lbs for bench, 90lb dumbbell for shoudler, kneeling box jump of 16" and standing box jump of 48". I've come so far from when I first started. It takes a great amount of patients, but it's well worth it.
