A Little About Me:
I was born in Waukegan, Illinois, but I attended high school in Kenosha, WI where I played football and baseball. I’m currently in my senior year of studying at UW-La Crosse where I plan to graduate with a major in Exercise & Sport science. Fitness and sports have always been a big part of my life and I believe that striving to be the best version of yourself is key to succeeding in anything. My dream is to be a well respected coach in the sports performance industry but I know that takes hard work and experience, both I am constantly working to attain. I enjoy life and believe living the life you love is important.
What interested you about becoming a Personal Trainer:
I have been involved with sports and fitness since I was young and that’s the way I want to keep it. I want to work with the best athletes in the world as well as people who are trying to reach any fitness related goal they have. Being fit and feeling good about yourself improves quality of life!
What training/ experiences have you had that enhance your knowledge as a trainer:
I am always learning and gaining knowledge from new experiences so that I can better help others to achieve their goals and beyond. One experience I would have to say I learned a lot from was going down to Huston to pick the brain of Nine Innovations gym owner, Abdul Foster, who gave me unbelievable guidance about the fitness industry.
How would your clients describe you and your training style:
I love to have a good time while training and maintain a positive atmosphere. The best results come from having fun and enjoying what you’re doing. But, when we come to train we mean business and will work hard to reach our goals. Clients who enjoy the process as much as the end result is key to reaching your full potential. Competition brings out the best in us, whether that be with ourselves or others, that’s why its important to always compete at you best.
Best fitness advice you have ever received:
You have to want it as bad as you want to breathe.
