Background: As a two sport athlete all through high school I was able to stay in great condition until I suffered a torn MCL in my right knee. After being out of commission for about 6 months I had gained some weight and became very sedentary. When I finally hit the 200 mark I decided it was time to get back into shape, so I hit the gym. I was going about 5 times a week and feel in love. I decided that I wanted to help people through the same problems that I had to face so I moved to Florida to attend the National Personal Training institute of Orlando. Four Months and 500 hours later I had graduated and moved home where I became certified through NASM and began my journey with Fitness Together.
Hobbies: Resistance Training, Skiing, Hiking, Baseball, Softball and riding my motorcycle.

Background Information/Training Philosophy
I believe in encouraging a client to be the best they can be. By coaching them towards their goals, it not only makes them happy, it also helps me reach my goal as a trainer. I also believe that unless a client in enjoying his/her time, they will not achieve all they are capable of. It is important to serve the clients with training and nutritional advice in ways that challenge them, and help them enjoy living a healthy lifestyle.
