From the age of 4, my parents had me in some kind of sport. Football,
basketball, and baseball became my top 3 choices. I played up until high school, then I focused on just football and basketball. Going into college I hadn't decided which direction to go, career wise, and was not pursuing sports on a collegiate level. Despite this I still kept physically active with weight lifting and recreational sports. I loved how it made me feel when I was active and wanted to help people feel the same way, so I combined an occupation and hobby into one. It also holds me accountable by practicing what I preach.
I want to teach people how to become better versions of themselves by setting goals and working towards them. There is no better feeling than setting and accomplishing a goal, except when you help someone else reach theirs. The look on that person's face when they hit their goals, knowing you played a part in their success gives you satisfaction like nothing else. There are many benefits in staying healthy and active.
Obesity is an epidemic across the world, especially in the U.S. I believe people are too scared to step outside of their comfort zones. They are afraid that others are going to judge them or are too ashamed that they let themselves get too out of shape. I want people to feel comfortable, knowing there are others like me who want to help by educating them on leading healthier lives; lives without a ton of medications, diseases, and an opportunity to live longer. This is why I became a personal trainer.
