Exercise has always been a vital part of my life, like my personal style of meditation, but I wasn’t always aware of how deeply it had impacted me. When I eventually realized the magnitude of the positive effects exercise had created for me throughout the course of my life, I knew immediately that it was important for me to share that with others. Being the self-starter that I am, I set out to learn as much as I possibly could about everything from weight training, cardio, nutrition, supplementation, and even the vital role played by sleep and recovery for fitness and overall wellbeing. In 2012, I became a certified personal trainer through NASM (The National Academy of Sports Medicine) as well as TRX Suspension Training, a unique training method created by Navy Seals utilizing only your bodyweight. I have competed in the NPC Figure division, and have experience working with a wide range of clients, from bodybuilding competitors to elderly and post-surgery clientele working on improving functional mobility.
My personal method is to focus on creating sustainable habits that not only help you to reach your fitness goals, but allow you to do so in the healthiest way possible. I like to focus on optimizing hormonal function through proper nutritional timing and utilizing the correct weight training and cardiovascular training techniques, in order to get your body working for you rather than against you. By building strength and teaching your body to work more efficiently, diet and exercise slowly begins to feel less like work and more like a lifestyle that you can truly love and look forward to.
