I crave adventure in the great outdoors and this characteristic has taken me from California to all around the World. I have over 5 years experience in designing and monitoring exercise programs based on client needs, goals, abilities, and anatomy. Motivating people to be the best versions of themselves is what I love waking up to do everyday. I don’t think there’s anyone who always feels perfect about their body, but I’ve found that when I feel STRONG, my confidence skyrockets. My goal is empower you through fitness, to harness your personal strength, determination, and power to change the way you live your life! Let’s sweat!
