Personal Trainer Overview

All workouts include constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. They are of a CrossFit/circuit training format, and focus on three main types of exercise: metabolic conditioning (cardio), bodyweight/gymnastics movements and weightlifting. While these are all components of the workout, I'll always incorporate movements/exercises relevant to the activities you enjoy, i.e. sports or any other outdoor activities.

Training Philosophy

Optimal health includes three main principles: eating well, getting an adequate amount of sleep and a constantly varied program focusing on functional movements. My training methods are primarily CrossFit/circuit-based, providing high intensity but a great deal of diversity each and every workout. While I'm not a drill sergeant by any means, I keep clients motivated by incorporating exercises/movements relevant to their interests outside the workout and a hands-on approach in explaining the constantly varied functional movements we perform. My motivation is to help my clients attain their goals; there's nothing better than seeing a client smile when they realize they're getting/looking better.

As a person who has struggled with immense weight gain at two points in my life, fitness is incredibly important to me. At the age of 12, my fitness journey began when at a routine physical my pediatrician told me I really needed to lose weight due to an abnormal development of breast tissue. After maintaining that weight for 3 years and growing into my body, I remained active until my sophomore year of college, where I put on a Sophomore 70. It was at that point that I swore to never be overweight again. After experimenting with various diets and exercise regimens to combat the weight gain, I am now under 10% body fat and constantly challenging myself to be better from a fitness and athletic perspective. I'm not an only an adamant fitness enthusiast, but also an avid softball player who plays year-round until it gets too cold (usually in December or January). I'm generally laid back, but have no problem telling a client when he/she is performing a movement wrong or needs to push through a workout.
