I have always been into sports and fitness ever since I can remember. Growing up I was a 5 sport athlete (Cross Country, Football, Basketball, Track, and Baseball). I went on to play one year of college basketball before suffering an injury that ended my competitive playing days. The injury made me view sports, fitness, and life from a different perspective. I started to develop my passion for coaching and helping people reach their full potential. I went on to get my college degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in Coaching at Northern Michigan University. During my summers, I trained several athletes from 1st grade to 12th grade at the high school I graduated from. Working with the youth population is one of my favorite groups to work with. I also enjoy working with clients who are looking to gain strength and muscle. I am currently working towards becoming a Weight Loss Specialist.
My fitness philosophy is to make custom programs tailored to an individual that pushes them to their limit. I often use the phrase that I want my clients to be “comfortably uncomfortable” throughout the entire workout. My reasoning behind this is that I want my client to be able to give maximum effort for every exercise to get the absolute most out of their body in the time that we have together.
