I wanted to become the person I needed as a kid. My 1st encounter with a Strength & Conditioning Coach wasn't until my senior year of high school at Penn Charter. I felt the impact of a great Coach and watched my confidence soar. Ultimately, it changed the course of my life for the better. I figured there was no better way to spend my life's work than doing the same for others.

If there was 1 myth about Health and Fitness that you could make disappear tomorrow, what would it be and why?

"You need to be in shape before you join a gym" - I think this misconception holds a lot people back. Unfortunately, so many never get started because of it.

That you need to eat a very restrictive diet and do lots of cardio to “lose weight.” Too many people do endless cardio and eat too little in an effort to be less fat, but eventually quit. People need to understand that by eating like an adult and lifting weights, and doing that forever, they’ll be where they want to be.

I became a coach due to the experiences I had as a teenager. Struggling with insecurities and self-esteem issues, going to the gym and exercising became my escape. Over the course of a couple years, I began transitioning into becoming a personal trainer. I knew that many individuals may have similar, if not, exact reasons to go the gym than I did. However, many struggle to begin/start this journey and therefore struggle to fall in love with it. My duty is to open up that path. Not only see the end, but everything in between. Learning to fall in love with the process opens up endless avenues and constant goals to chase.

There is no one way approach to exercise and fitness. One of the most important aspects of exercise is the individuality that surrounds it. What you can do in terms of movement capabilities, training history/background may not be the same as the person next to you. Being able to recognize where you are at in your training, and make the necessary/appropriate changes for yourself is crucial for safe and consistent progress.

Rowing & Powerlifting

Weightlifting is inherently self disciplined and individual. You are entirely responsible for lifting the weight on your own back. Being passionate about a sport/skill wasn’t really introduced to me until my collegiate athletics experience. After experiencing the joy of being passionate about my own progression, I knew coaching would allow me to help others through the same journey.
