I am 54 year old male who has been involved in fitness starting as a sports counselor at a day camp as a teenager to now Director of Personal Trainer at Gold’s Gym Howell. In the past have also trained at Free Motion Physical Therapy, AMS Chiro, and Ramtown Karate Academy . Also operate RKA Personal Fitness Training for in-house clients.
I want to share my passion for helping people learn and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy working with the special population, people who are overweight and baby boomers. I have 5 disc issues in lumbar and cervical areas, 2 shoulder surgeries, plantar fasciitis, and now how to modify exercises to keep being active. With that in mind, I modify exercise programs to be low impact as needed. Once being overweight, I have been on the other side of the fence so I know the feeling can demonstrate the compassion in becoming fit.
