It's more than getting a workout, it's about changing people's lives for the better through empowerment for any goal.
Working with a trainer isn't all about getting results. Sure, everything I do is geared towards helping you achieve the goals we've set from the start, but usually those goals are bigger than a tight stomach or increased strength. It's about the journey, learning what you are capable of, and overcoming things you may have never thought possible. I want to be your guide.
A great deal of fitness takes place outside of the gym. From nutrition to meal planning, stretching to recovery, we’ll work together to create a healthy lifestyle inside the gym and out. For most of us, we’re not as fit as we once were. Before we gained weight. Before we got injured. Before we had kids. Before we sat in front of a computer all day. Working with a trainer is a great way to get back to how you used to be—and how you want to be.
I started playing sports when I was 6 years old. I lifted my first weight (using the good ole classic, "Universal Machines") when I was 13 years old. A huge credit to my health and fitness journey and one of the main reasons it's so prevalent in my life today is because of my junior high P.E. teacher and (later) my High School Varsity Basketball Coach; Coach O’Brien. Thanks to his leadership and mentor-ship I'm able to inspire others to make positive changes in their lives.
What sets me apart as a trainer/coach today, is how well I can connect with people from all walks of life. I excel at creating fitness programs that take advantage of any indoor facility our even outdoors , providing appropriate workouts for every fitness level and starting point.
Communication, trust and accountability is key in helping you develop the right mindset to keep you on the path towards achieving your goals.
