Since I was a young child I have always loved sports and fitness. My passion was basketball and I was lucky enough to continue this passion into college playing for the United States Military Academy.
Through the journey of playing and preparing for a Division I basketball program and becoming an officer in the Army I faced many physical and mental challenges. Throughout them I learned the principles of health and fitness and the importance it has on the health of both your body and mind. These principles have enabled me to experience lasting athletic success and achievement, and have a genuine desire to help others achieve the same. It is my experience as an athlete that has sparked the desire to pursue fitness coaching.
I am currently a nationally accredited Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers (NCCPT), an International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Certified Nutrition Specialist, and a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. I am also in the process of receiving my Masters in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology with a concentration on Human Performance from the University of Florida. I not only have a burning passion for health and fitness, I also have a burning passion to have the right knowledge that will help myself and others most effectively improve their overall health.
I believe we are all capable of becoming the best versions of ourselves and achieving our goals. Learn more about how we can own the distance between where we are and where we want to be!
BENEFITS OF WORKING OUT
Consistently challenging yourself through fitness improves your body composition and your grit, which ultimately results in an improved sense of self-confidence. When you repeatedly pushed yourself past your comfort zones you can look back and see how far you have come, and then excitedly envision how far you can go.
Boost Your Mood
Exercise promotes all kinds of changes in the brain, including neural growth, reduced inflammation, and new activity patterns that promote feelings of calm and well-being. It also released endorphins, powerful chemicals in your brain that energize your spirits and make you feel good.
Increase Energy Levels
Exercise circulates blood through the body, activates the central nervous system, increases heart rate, and releases endorphins throughout the body, all of which raise our energy levels.
