My fitness journey began in 2002 due to a back injury. I didn't want to have back problems for the rest of my life, so I joined a gym to get stronger. After a few months I began taking Kung Fu and later on, Kickboxing. I did those for a combined 11 years.

     I continued to weight train on the side, but slowly my focus began to drift more and more into strength and conditioning. I decided to turn my passion into my career and acquired my personal training certification.

     While training clients, I've continued my own growth as an athlete and started practicing the Olympic lifts, dabbling in Crossfit and powerlifting. I enjoy the challenge this provides, both physically and mentally.

     I look forward to passing on the knowledge that I've gained, both through formal study and personal experience.
