Associates Degree in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science NASM Certified Personal Trainer
I am a certified Personal Trainer with my NASM certification. I also have an Associate degree in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science. What got me into the fitness field as a career is a combination of things. One being my passion for helping people. I was always that kid that was the first to volunteer to help out and still am today. The second thing being a passion for fitness and health. This one stemmed from my own experiences and family medical history. I was at one point in my life the short fat kid in school. Though I didn’t get bullied for it as much as I thought I would as I was going into high school. I did grow to hate how I looked and felt. Which led me down the path of fitness and a healthier lifestyle that I actively have now. All of this led me to want to help anyone I can with achieving their own fitness or health related goals. That being said I specialize in Calisthenics and strength endurance. I firmly believe in functional strength to maintain the ability to “move” all throughout life. For example, my end goal for myself is to be over 100 years old and still be able to do a handstand.
