    in my free time I like to
    Spend time with my daughters and wife in the great San Diego outdoors. We love to go hiking, spend time at the beach and traveling in the U.S. and abroad. I also love surfing, running and weight training. Reading and attending live concerts are also a nice luxury.

    Pain has been a constant variable on my mind ever since elementary school. I suffered from chronic lower back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and ankle pain. This never ending increasing pain led me to aspire to understand as much as I could about the human body from an early age, especially while obtaining my bachelors in Kinesiology. Regardless of what your perfect balance of fitness factors are, I believe the only non-negotiables’ are effort and persistence. I strive to create authentic, meaningful relationships with my clients and view myself as more of a teacher than a trainer. I want you to walk away with the confidence that you can train yourself without the overwhelming struggle required to understand the complex underpinning mechanisms required to make practical decisions. So let me save you years worth of struggle and time and lets create a purposeful results driven program designed 100% for you!

    in my free time I like to
    Be an awesome father and loving husband. I live for quality time with loved ones, going on adventures, hikes, and anything in the great outdoors. I have a deep curiosity and desire to learn as much as possible related to self improvement, life, the human body, philosophy and psychology.

    Growing up back in Minnesota our weather was not like California, so I really had to make the most of being active outdoors when I could! I was involved with sports, biking, skateboarding and rollerblading became one of my favorite. Like most people, as I got older, life gets in the way..especially when I went to college. Through my experiences with learning how important our health is, I found my real passion for leading a healthy lifestyle. I love being a part of others health and wellness journey and helping my clients through their struggles and to reach their goals, so they can feel better about themselves and to know that they are not alone. Whether it is helping clients lose weight, gain muscle or helping with aches and pains, I aspire to create an environment where people are getting fit while having fun! To stay motivated through all of life's struggles and to learn how to take care of their bodies.

    in my free time I like to
    Spend time outdoors rollerblading, hiking or going on walks with my husband. I'm obsessed with my cats, they can do no wrong! I like going to concerts and sporting events, especially football and baseball. I continue to learn more about being the best trainer I can be.

    My passion towards fitness began at an early age. Throughout high school, I was involved in a variety of sports such as baseball, mountain biking, volleyball, dirt biking and more. In doing so, I was introduced to physical fitness at a young age and quickly discovered a passion for improving myself through continuous fitness training. I learned the unique ways in which different physical activities can target and build varying muscles. A lifelong dream of mine is to become a firefighter. Due to the demanding physical requirements of the job, I began to train in order to prepare for a career as a firefighter and pursued my degree at SDSU. Furthermore, I was given the opportunity to intern at different fitness facilities in San Diego to gain a greater understanding of the role. I aim to bring my knowledge regarding fitness training and nutrition to Fitness Together and look forward to helping you all become the best and most healthy versions of yourself.

    in my free time I like to
    When I am not at Fitness Together, I like to spend my free time doing activities with either my girlfriend, Lauren, or my roommates. Additionally, I enjoy playing guitar, golfing, mountain biking, and weight lifting.

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.
