I have been personal training & coaching in the fitness industry for the past 6 years. I just recently finished working at a small private college, St. Andrews University, for the past two & a half years as the Strength & Conditioning Coach for a number of the sports teams. I worked alongside the Women’s Volleyball team, Men’s & Women’s Soccer teams, and also the Women’s Lacrosse team. I also have experience working with youth sports programs as an athletic conditioning coach, as well as speed & agility coaching. Sport specific drills, circuit training, & athletic conditioning are my passion. In my free time you can catch me outside. I enjoy participating in any kind of Obstacle Course Racing events, working out, or anything that’s related to being out on the water. I believe that physical activity is a large portion of overall well-being & happiness. My ultimate goal is to help clients find fun in fitness. I want to empower and excite people to live a healthy lifestyle, embrace physical activity, and enjoy the outdoors.
