A lifetime battle with obesity brought me to the gym and has kept me here.

The goal of fitness is to improve upon these through functional exercise to create a better daily existence for ourselves. I believe exercise should be fun, challenging, and safe. Exercises can be scaled and modified for all fitness levels. The gym is an inclusive, safe environment where we train to become a better version of ourselves.

The best healthcare is self-care. Exercise and nutrition are the two biggest factors effecting your health. I want you to own your health as much as possible. I am passionate about preventive healthcare. I want to work with you before you develop back pain, knee pain, or heart disease. I enjoy working on injury prevention programs, weight loss programs, and sports specific training programs. I am also available for rehabilitation programs for post/pre surgery programs, sports injury treatment, pain management, balance training, manual therapy – including massage, myofascial release, KT taping, and more. I love working with patients, but I also profoundly understand the importance of working with people before they become patients. We are what we repeatedly do. I truly believe we need to exercise to stay FIT, eat to NOURISH, and we need to have a lot of FUN along the way.
