    I started my fitness journey while in college, aiming to stay active and focus on exercise form. Since I was not on a team as a kid, I enjoyed finding like-minded people who valued pushing themselves. I was becoming both mentally and physically stronger. My experience grew by serving as a membership specialist in various gyms and then continuing to complete my CPT certification. My programs aim to maximize mobility and balance, incorporate functional and fun techniques, and reduce the risk of injury. I want clients to feel comfortable and accomplished in the gym. Not only that, my goal for everyone is to practice healthy habits beyond the studio.

    in my free time I like to
    I enjoy going on walks, biking, or trying new things. Traveling and experiencing other places is also very important to me. I try to find the best local restaurants with fresh eats. When I’m not working, you might find me volunteering at a community event or coaching a kids' sports league.

    Credentials

    • Personal Fitness Trainer Certification, National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM)

    • Certified Exercise Coach, C.H.E.K. Institute

    For me, coaching others to achieve their fitness and well-being is a personal and professional passion. My love of movement began at a young age and has continued into my adult life. I’ve played many different sports and activities including: baseball, football, Jiu Jitsu, and Olympic weightlifting. As I got older, I realized that I could emulate the same movements I loved so much playing sports, in the gym in what we call “functional exercise”. This gave me the freedom to move however I wanted without the limitations of playing a sport. My passion for being physically active also led me to working different jobs prior to becoming a personal trainer. Some of the jobs include working as an emergency medical technician, landscaping, working on boats, and being a surf instructor. I’ve found that my experience in these different fields has benefited me as a personal trainer. I like to be outside connecting with nature; hiking with my dog and close friends. Improving one’s fitness and well-being through exercise is a lifelong pursuit that should be dynamic, effective, and fun. In addition to movement and exercise, I coach my clients on optimal nutrition and lifestyle practices. It is an honor to work with my clients to help them achieve their health and fitness goals.

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time enjoy exercising outside and spending time in nature. I also enjoy eating delicious food and watching comedy movies/shows.

    There has never been a time in my life at which I didn’t enjoy learning and partaking in some form of fitness-related activities. Throughout my younger years, from early childhood to college, athletic performance had always been a top priority of mine, specifically relating to football and baseball; over time, that same focus and passion for my personal health and wellness expanded itself into a focus and passion that I now love to share with everyone in my life, especially those with whom I work - those who are invested in optimizing their own personal fitness. I believe that fitness is a way of living, and not something limited solely to the gym (although regular exercise is certainly a necessary aspect to maintaining said lifestyle). When you workout with me, I’ll guarantee to implement and provide you with personalized knowledge that will maximize your fitness levels, whether that entails working out in the gym or preparing nutritious meals in the kitchen.

    in my free time I like to
    I still enjoy playing sports like football and baseball, as well as surfing, dancing, reading, writing, and spending as much time as I can outdoors in nature, preferably playing with my dog Brody or working with my own two hands on a regenerative-based farm.

    Growing up in athletics, I’ve never been a stranger to a gym. After High School and quitting basketball there was a while where I was navigating life without any real passion. My official Fitness journey began back in 2017, but it wasn’t until quarantine when we were all forced to improvise that it became more of a passion for me. I got certified by NASM back in December of 2021 and I’ve been training ever since. I genuinely enjoy the work and helping others not only reach goals, but see results. I am a 4 year Navy Veteran, where I was a Boatswain’s Mate. Since separating I’ve worked here and there, but since I’ve started training I haven’t looked elsewhere.

    in my free time I like to
    travel, play basketball and find new adventures, I like to explore all that San Diego and Southern California have to offer.
