About Me

First off I would like to thank you for visiting my site and potentially being interested in using my services! I have been involved in fitness for about 10 years. Throughout those years I have constantly researched and tested the most effective programs for specific goals. I love helping people.

I honestly think I have one of the most amazing jobs in the world. The best feeling I get is when a client comes up to me explaining that they can fit into those jeans they always wanted to with a huge smile on their face. Or coming up to me saying their self confidence has gone through the roof. These are just a few examples, but it is an amazing feeling to change someones life and that is what I strive for.

My Personal Transformation

When I was about 15 years old I was very skinny. I was always athletic and played sports but when I hit high school I was tiny. I weighed about 95 pounds and to give you and idea of how weak I was I could only bench press 70 pounds. I actually got made fun of for it and it was a terrible feeling. I was sick and tired of being the skinny kid so I started lifting weights and really got into it. I trained and entered various powerlifting competitions. In powerlifting you lift bench, squat, and deadlift. You compete against other people to see who can lift the most weight. I entered three competitions, got first in 2 and tied for first the third. While training I started to see some improvement in my body.

I started getting compliments left and right “Man you are looking good!” “Have you been lifting?” It felt so great and I believe that is when I thought to myself I could see myself doing this as a career. I want people to get that feeling that I did. To get the compliments and feel so much better about themselves. Fitness is my passion. It is the profession I want to be in for the rest of my life.
