Before my endless pursuit of health and wellness began I fancied myself an artist; until I suffered a bilateral wrist injury in 2009. I lost the ability to paint, sketch, work and even tie my shoes. This momentary loss of my hands changed my life and the human body became my canvas. I'm now a firm believer that the only REAL cure is strength through movement.
I graduated from The National Personal Training Institute in 2010 with the belief that I wasn't simply going to be a Personal Trainer, but an educator as well. I've studied multiple training disciplines in my journey thus far, which include: general weight loss, rehabilitative exercise (specializing in wrist mobility and strength), Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit, Kettlebell Sport, Kettlebell Juggling, ViPR training, Indian Club and Mace training, and bodyweight training. I bring this conglomerate of experience to the table to create evolving, cohesive programs with health and vitality in mind and promote an all around happier, healthier lifestyle.
My philosophy: To always strive for better quality of movement over the quantity of exercise. Move well, live well.
