My Philosophy

As an Air Force veteran with over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry and a master’s degree in exercise science, I hold a passion for empowering individuals. Armed with 10+ specialty personal trainer certifications, I am on a mission to provide people with the knowledge and techniques essential to cultivate strength, confidence, and power in their pursuit of a healthier lifestyle. My goal is to equip people with the tools to achieve their fitness aspirations and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. 

By incorporating scientific principles into my personal training approach, I aim to elevate the quality and effectiveness of my clients’ workouts. The foundation of my fitness philosophy lies in precision through science-based training, where every movement is carefully crafted based on knowledge and experience. Central to this philosophy is the concept of functional training, which emphasizes the importance of movement quality – ensuring that each exercise performed is purposeful and contributes to overall functional fitness.

However, I also recognize the dynamic and multi-faceted nature of wellness, which calls for a polished approach. This approach encompasses various elements, such as mindset, versatility, and camaraderie. By integrating these components into our training sessions, we create a well-rounded fitness experience that goes beyond the physical aspects.

As a fitness professional, my ultimate goal is to support and empower my clients, celebrating their successes and helping them overcome challenges. Science acts as our guiding compass, leading us towards evidence-based practices, while your aspirations serve as our shared destination. Together, we foster a journey of growth and transformation, fueled by the synergy of scientific knowledge and individual goals.
