About Coach

I have a bachelor's in biology and expertise in the fitness industry. During the time that I was a collegiate athlete, I was second-team all-conference and led the conference in tackles. I had to modify my exercise and nutritional regimens to achieve the correct weight, health, size, and endurance to perform at my peak.

Turning Point

I got into exercise and nutrition when I was young because I was overweight, unhealthy, had low self-esteem, lacked confidence, suffered from depression, and was embarrassed by who I saw in the mirror. I decided enough was enough! I was done being unhappy with who I was. I started eating and exercising right. However, I did not get those changes overnight. It was a long journey for me to get to where I am today and I am still working toward where I want to be. I started off struggling to lift the bar while other people were loading the bar with weight. I stuck with it and I kept at it because I knew the outcome was going to outweigh my struggles. I always worked out isolated and away from everyone else because I was embarrassed by not being able to do as much as them. A few days later I was doing the bar for more reps, then I was adding 5 pounds, and then I was adding 10 pounds. I fell in love with my progress and started seeing improvement. I did not achieve results because I am special in any way. I achieved results because I wanted it bad enough and I worked hard to get it. I stayed consistent day in and day out because I was determined to get rid of that miserable feeling I had toward myself. As a result of that hard work, dedication, and commitment. I can now say I have confidence in who I am, my self-confidence has grown, I am happy with my body, and I am no longer embarrassed by who I see in the mirror.

Motivation & Passion

I became certified to help people live healthier and happier lifestyles. I want to help people who are unhappy with the person they see looking back at them in the mirror like I was. I know exactly how hard it is to start a journey to becoming a better you, especially when you have no idea where to start. I am here every step of the way to help you, push you, and let you know you’re not alone. You can achieve your fitness dreams. Yes, it is possible. It just takes hard work, commitment, and staying connected to your ‘why’!
