Training Philosophy:
It’s always the right time to start this journey. The gym might seem like an intimidating place, but I see clients face and conquer those feelings all the time. Getting stronger is a process. Each lift, each set, each day in the gym teaches your body how to cope with challenge and endure. Training is simply learning to move through systematic and progressive challenges, then letting your body adapt to those new demands.

_
Areas of Expertise:

_
Training Philosophy:
I initially became a personal trainer 12 years ago to help people lose weight and gain muscle, but quickly found that almost everyone coming to me had shoulder, back, knee, or hip problem that were holding them back from reaching their goals. It was a necessary step for me to learn how to work successfully with a wide array of injuries, conditions and developmental issues in order to take on everyone possible who could benefit from my help.

_
Areas of Expertise:
Functional Training, Weight Loss, Strength Endurance Training, Circuit/Interval Training, Balance, Quickness and Agility Training, Obstacle Course Training.
_
Training Philosophy:
You train for life, and life is all about balance.
Sometimes when the going gets tough, you need to push hard and give it all you’ve got, and some days you need to find your inner zen, just to make it through the day. Being a former competitive boxer and athlete, I have gained the experience and knowledge to train you to push past mental barriers and go beyond your physical limits. Additionally, I have experience working in a corporate setting, which taught me that gaining the mental strength and control within is equally important to physical strength. You are only as strong on the outside as you are on the inside, and that is what I strive to achieve while guiding you to conquer your fitness goals.
