What is your specialty? My specialty is working with young athletes preparing them for their upcoming year of sports
What activity do you enjoy outside of Powerfit? I enjoy playing recreational slow pitch softball and attending Crossfit weekly
If you could only do one exercise, what would it be and why? The kettle bell swing, a dynamic hinge movement that helps with hip extension and strength along with conditioning
Why did you become a personal trainer? I grew up playing sports, when I played collegiate softball at SSU I knew I wanted to be in the field of kinesiology and I looked up to my strength and conditioning coach for helping and mentoring me through my softball career. I wanted to help people realize their true potential in becoming a stronger and healthier person throug out their life.
How have you changed a client’s life? I have changed a client’s life by teaching them the importance of nutrition and exercise; she lost over 20lbs and now can’t get out of the gym (when before she didn’t even know what a squat was) and will never go back to her old eating habits, she understands they way certain foods make her feel.
What is your exercise background? I have always done conditioning, plyos, and agility growing up playing sports; it wasn’t until collegiate softball where I picked up weights and ever since I have not put them down.
Describe your ideal client. My ideal client is either a current of former athlete that has goals of getting in shape for their season or becoming the strong athlete they once were.
