I enjoy sharing my passion about fitness and exercise with others. I hope to help you reach your fitness goals. Questions or need help - feel free to email me.
I started in fitness as a youth sports coach (primarily soccer). I started as a volunteer with only my own playing experience to go on, but realized that I enjoy working with young athletes and wanted to offer more than a recreational coach. I went back to school, got a BS in Sport Mgmt, and became a Certified Personal Trainer.
As I learned more about fitness and training, I started applying what I learned toward my own life. I believe that fitness requires a lifestyle change and not just periodic exercising or fad diets. Over the past 5 years or so, I have lost about 25-30 lbs. and lost 12 lbs. in the last year alone. Having a daytime job that requires a lot of sitting, I can relate to the challenges and the required changes that need to be made to overcome long periods of sitting.
