LEVEL 1 PERSONAL TRAINER

_
Education/Certifications:
NASM CPT, teamTRAIN, teamBURN, teamDROP10
_
Areas of Expertise:
Strength training, weight loss, weight lifting, taking the intimidation out of the weight room
_
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.

EXPERIENCE
Coming from an athletic background of martial arts, football, and baseball, where I happened to sustain many injuries, I’ve had to adapt the way I train and workout many times over the course of my life. Therefore, I find my passion working with clients that have varying walks of life. Whether it be someone who has an injury that needs rehabilitation, a client who is focused on weight loss, or a person who wants to perform at an athletic level, I have the knowledge and experience to support them along the way and accelerate the time it takes to reach their individual goals.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I believe that movement is a way of life. To truly appreciate and reap all the benefits of moving the human body, whether it be yoga, lifting weights, running, etc., you need to take a holistic approach to all modalities. My goal with my clients is to have them create a relationship with their body that is developed in the gym and taken outside of the gym to help them in all aspects of their life.

EXPERIENCE
Fitness came into my life when I needed it the most. As a child I always struggled with self-confidence, anxiety and unhealthy eating habits. It wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I realized I needed to take control of my life and make a lifestyle change. I began spending time in the gym and was instantly hooked. I eventually decided that I wanted to make it my career and help others who were struggling with the similar issues. During my time as a trainer, I’ve worked with an array of clients, focusing on weight loss, strength gains, and wedding prep. My training style includes, strength training with a mix of interval training, for fun and effective workouts.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I find joy in helping clients achieve a balanced lifestyle by embracing all aspects of health and wellness. I aim to create a training environment that motivates and empowers individuals to improve their quality of life in a fun and rewarding way. Sets goals, train regularly, work out to be strong and keep it enjoyable. After all, life is your biggest challenge, so train to win it!

EXPERIENCE
I started my career as a personal trainer and yoga instructor while living in Seoul, South Korea. I have worked with a wide array of athletes, from absolute beginners, to competitors, to pre/post-natal women, to those dealing with lifelong injuries, and to those that just needed a way to channel their daily troubles. I specialize in weight loss, strength and conditioning, HIIT training, injury prevention, long distance and OCR preparation/conditioning, and healing/recovering through trauma with fitness. Having struggled with personal trauma most my life, my body felt foreign to me and I was dissociated and disconnected. Fitness has helped me save my own life and it continues to be something I am passionate about and endlessly eager to explore.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
My training schedule is a collage of yoga sessions, HIIT and bodybuilding workouts, obstacle course races, CrossFit WODs, triathlon training, and the occasional marathon. I am a shepherd of fitness and my flock includes many women who have suffered personal trauma. I love working with these athletes because I know that even if they’re still struggling, fitness can reconnect them with their bodies and aid them in their recovery. You’ll find that I like to take a holistic approach to fitness, and each relationship I build with my clients is an example of that.

If we don’t, we let the vehicle that takes us through life deteriorate along with our general well-being and happiness. A commitment to fitness is a commitment to respecting your body, showing yourself the strength you’re truly capable of, and maximizing your ability to experience a great life. That’s what I want for each of my clients.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
