I have been getting people back into shape and on the road to health for over 6 years. I enjoy showing my clients how to not only get into to shape but how to enjoy it and keep it off!!! My methods include motivation, transforming the way you eat and view foods as well as muscle earning/fat burning workouts. To me, its not enough to train you but to teach you so that you are more informed than the day you started. My mission is to create a lifestyle and not to just drop 3 pant sizes (that without knowledge , you can and will gain back). I work with everyone from the “baby beginners” to the “I only need a refresher” to the “I think I know what I’m doing”…lol… I look forward to meeting you and working with you!!!! See you soon!
I have a strong desire and passion to train and empower others. I have over 13 years’ experience in training others for combat, assessing officer candidates to be Army Officer, and fitness in the military. Personal Training has been a natural talent that I love just as much as I love training Soldiers. My personal desire for wanting to train others came from a personal loss in my life that could’ve been avoided with better food choices and the elimination of stress. Nevertheless, yes prior/present military means that I’m militant but I’m not crazy, well not completely. Yes I will push you and hold you accountable. I will ensure your goals are met with additional personal accolades that you may not have even dreamed you’ll accomplish. Fitness has to be a lifestyle change not just a fad for the moment. Your desire for achieving your goals may start in class, but it has to end with what you do away from class. I look forward to meeting and working with each of you.
(bio coming soon)
