Exercise and fitness have been a part of my life from a young age. Playing soccer exposed me to performance training and inspired me to lift weights to get faster and stronger. Injuries in soccer helped me to learn functional anatomy and rehabilitation protocols. Exercise has also been the most effective way of treating my depression and creating a better functioning brain. I am thankful for all of the difficulties I have encountered through my life, because each one has helped me to become a better-rounded person. Ankle surgery, four fractured vertebrae, dislocated knees, and food allergies have forced me to train smarter and to become more educated with my own workouts. This knowledge has carried over to how I train my clients and created a philosophy that merges corrective exercise and integrative training with intense strength training and functional conditioning. I continually seek to figure out what are the limiting factors to a person’s optimal functioning through assessment and movement analysis and then use the latest that exercise science has developed to break through those plateaus. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, or move better, I can help you develop a plan to get you to your goals faster!
