Why did you want to be a trainer?
I found my passion for helping other's live a healthier lifestyle while working in the Emergency Department. Witnessing so many diseases over the years that could have been prevented or even treated with diet and exercise heightened my awareness of their importance.Consequently, I undertook a plan to become a personal trainer with a mission to improve my client's life through achieving fitness and instilling a more positive body image.
What kind of certification do you have and from where?
I am a personal trainer certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE). ACE is the largest nonprofit health and fitness certification, education and training organization in the world.
What do you like most about being a trainer?
The thing I like most about being a trainer is watching my clients evolve into a more confident version of them. I find it very rewarding to positively impact my client's life. Also satisfying is helping them realize just how strong they are both physically and mentally.
Do you specialize in a particular field of training?
Weight loss and high intensity interval training are what I have the most experience with currently. I'm fairly new to the fitness industry in the capacity of being a personal trainer but have been involved in athletics for a long time. I intend to learn and grow as a trainer and along the way I may specialize but for now there isn't a field of training that doesn't interest me.
At what age do you feel personal training is beneficial?
It's never too early or late to start personal training. Everyone can benefit regardless of age.
What is your view of supplements?
I feel there is an important role for supplementation, however a healthy diet is still the key component of any fitness regiment.
What can I expect from my first visit with you?
You can expect to be greeted with high energy! We will talk about your past and present medical history and assess your future goals. Next, I will get you moving so I can assess your range of motion, strength, form and cardiovascular conditioning all while having fun. Afterward, you will have a chance to have any of your questions answered while we formulate your personal pathway to fitness. Expect a hug from me upon completion and a call the next day to ask about your experience.
