    I am a Georgia native! I grew up in Valdosta where my family has their own produce company. I graduated from Abraham Baldwin College but moved up to the Atlanta area for more opportunities to help people in the wellness industry. I've been active my whole life, playing in sports and working with the family business. What I love about FT is our clientelle - they are some of the most hardworking and committed people I've ever met and they inspire me every day. I also love that I'm part of such an amazing team of trainers. I have such a strong desire to see my clients reach a level of self confidence so I love that I get to show people that they can accomplish any goal they set their minds to!

    in my free time I like to
    spend time in they gym (go figure!). I've learned so much about how to challenge others by challenging myself in the gym. When I'm not in the gym, though, I love spending time in my yard, reading, watching sports and playing video games!

    In 2018, after having spent most of my career in business management, I was looking for a new challenge and a job change. Fitness has been a priority to me for as long as I can remember, and I realized I could turn that passion into my profession. I became a certified personal trainer in 2019 and began the transition from the “business world” to the “fitness world” by leading group fitness classes at senior centers. While my specialization is in senior fitness, I love training people of all ages and have found Fitness Together to be a wonderful place to pursue my passion. What I enjoy most about working at FT are the clients and the staff! The clients here are fun, thoughtful, energetic people who work hard to improve the quality of their lives through exercise. Working with them inspires me to become the best trainer I can be. The staff at FT is second to none. It is a joy to work alongside people who sincerely care about helping others and who take pride in their work.

    in my free time I like to
    hike and camp - those are my favorite outdoor activities, and I spend many of my days off in north Georgia playing in the woods! When I’m not at FT or on a trail, I enjoy reading, sketching, going to concerts, and spending time with my family & friends.

    • Nationally Certified Personal Trainer through the International Sport Sciences Association
    • CPR Certified through the American Red Cross

    Growing up, I was an avid sports fan (still am) and an athlete. It was as a kid that I fell in love with exercise and working to improve my own performance on the field. I found my true fitness journey while in college playing collegiate tennis where I realized that I wanted to help others gain better performance in all aspects of their lives. I was hired at Fitness Together right out of college and have loved being part of a passionate team that works together to help the lives of our hard working clients. I love the relationships I've built and it is those relationships that inspire me to remain committed and drive me to continuously improve myself so that I can help my clients.

    in my free time I like to
    play all kinds of sports and card games and other games of any sort (you could say I'm a little competitive ;). I also love spending quality time with my close friends and family and also, working on my own physical and mental wellbeing through exercise and fitness.

    • Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science
    • American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist

    I am a Filipino-American and I've lived in Georgia for about 12 years. I fell in love with training and fitness about 5 years ago so I decided to get my education in Exercise Science. While in school, I discovered the sport of rock climbing and shortly after that, I joined a rock climbing gym. I progressed quite quickly and went on to become a rock climbing coach for a youth rock climbing team. It was there that I realized my passion for teaching and coaching others. After earning my B.S. in Exercise Science, I became a Fitness Together trainer. I love being a personal trainer because I can use my knowledge to help others achieve their fitness goals. I also love that I get to build meaningful relationships with my clients and I find that I learn just as much from them as they do from me. FT's values resonate very strongly with me and and give me purpose: to always express gratitude, genuinely care, have pride in our service, empower commitment and continuously improve.

    in my free time I like to
    climb (obviously), workout and spend time with my girlfriend, friends and family. I'm blessed with such a supportive partner who also motivates me to be the best man I can be. Maintaining my relationships is extremely important to me to so when I'm not working, climbing or working out, you'll find me spending time with the people who I've built relationships with over the years.

    I am a lifelong athlete...I love exercise and enjoy kickboxing and playing basketball. I also love the outdoors; hiking and swimming...hot days in the sand, by the beach. I was mentored from a very young age by a phenomenal and inspiring coach. He taught me not only about hard work but about taking pride in my craft and always working to continuously improve myself. It was during my time learning from him that I realized I wanted to coach others and inspire them. I am currently studying for my degree in Journalism. I hope to use that knowledge combined with my passion for helping people to make an impact on my community through teaching people how to have a better life through better health and improved fitness. I love working at Fitness Together because I get the opportunity to do what I love everyday; to help people and serve my community. Also, my goals align with the values of FT.

    in my free time I like to
    practice yoga, exercise, meditate, hike and and enjoy nature. I also love spending time with my family and friends, and playing with my Dachshund, Diamond.
