I have been running and lifting for over 20 years. I have been a certified personal trainer for over 8years. I am ACE, AAAI, and TRX certified. I graduated college overweight and out of shape, and turned to running as a way to lose weight and get back in shape. I started with 5Ks (3.1 Mile Run), and have worked up to Half Marathons, Marathons, MudRuns, Tough Mudder runs, and triathlons.
Through my experiences I learned the importance of incorporating weight training , core strengthening, and proper nutrition to maximize your healthy lifestyle. Strengthening your core and correcting your posture have become very important things to concentrate on. I have trained many unique individuals including middle school athletes, high school athletes, moms trying to lose baby fat, individuals trying to get into running and/or triathlons, individuals trying to get motivated to live a healthier lifestyle, seniors, and individuals with Type II diabetes. Whether you are looking to take it up a notch, or are looking to start your journey towards a healthier lifestyle, I can help. Find Out What You Are Capable Of! Contact me today!
