Growing up I was very active in sports, playing both basketball and football. My involvement in organized sports allowed me to get away with poor nutrition. As a result, I was internally
unhealthy. In college, I put an emphasis on school and work rather than being involved in sports. My eating habits caught up to me and my weight skyrocketed. Eventually, I realized that I did not look like a healthy fitness professional. I lost over 50 pounds using the knowledge I gained in school. I have been in the fitness and recreation field over three years.
During my time at Liberty University I surrounded myself with positive and knowledgeable mentors. I was taught by a strength coach at Liberty in Olympic and Powerlifting. I take pride in
being a stickler for proper form to decrease the chance of injury. My motto is “Do No Harm.” I understand the necessity for the basics and I enjoy helping people get back to performing fundamental movements. I believe the relationship between physical therapy and personal training is and should be a lot more closely related than most might realize. Interning at Competitive Edge Sports in Atlanta, GA, helped me the most training clients with Sport Performance goals. I have experience in training athletes of all ages and skill levels, including youth, high school, collegiate and professional.I never get tired of learning about the health and fitness field. When not training clients you can usually find me trying new exercises/workouts or reading fitness related material. I am currently pursuing a few nationally accredited certifications to bring the best material possible to my clients.
