I have always been interested in physical fitness from a young age. I started working out at 12 years old with old plastic concrete-filled weights. Always thinking strong men were “cool” and loved sports I got involved with training youth athletes. I love working with all ages of clients for all reasons from sports, rehab, longevity, overall health, etc. I played basketball, baseball, soccer, track, and weightlifting growing up. My biggest highlight is working with kids who get college scholarships.
As a child, I heard many times you are too little to do this or that. That fueled me to start my life of fitness. Within a couple of years, I could lift more than other kids up to 100lbs heavier than me and beat kids in a track that were taller. As I’ve gotten older I am battling Father Time. After seeing family members develop health issues over the years which could be attributed to a lack of physical fitness I am determined not to let age determine what I can or can’t do physically. We don’t quit working out because we get older because we quit working out.
My purpose for coaching is to help young people develop a passion to live a healthy physically fit life even after their school days, to help adults reach their goals whatever they may be, feel like age is just a number, and to live a more functionally fit life. I love hearing from my clients how their body feels as good as it has in years.
