Philosophy: Fitness is a huge part of my life, and it’s my lifestyle. Exercise is my passion, and working out is one of my highlights in every day. I have a broad spectrum client base, from weight loss to muscle development, sport specific training for youth and adults, elderly and special needs persons. I specialize in providing the professional assistance (Education, Motivation, and Accountability) needed to help create good habits leading to permanent lifestyle changes by customizing individual plans with regards to: Weight lifting, Nutrition, Cardio, Core strengthening, Balancing, Resistance/Flexibility training and Vitamins/Supplement recommendations. I also believe in making exercise fun but also challenging. Without challenge there’s no improvement. To be comfortable means to stay the same, to be uncomfortable means you will start seeing the results and change from all your hard work and dedication. I believe in training for life and not just short term benefit. You need to stay focused on the big picture in order to develop a healthier lifestyle and enhance one’s quality of life. If you have a goal or goals, with hard work, motivation, the right support and tools, then WE can achieve it. Whether your goal is to lose body fat, to gain strength and muscle, to become a better athlete, to correct poor posture and alleviate pain, or just to live a healthier lifestyle, I can help you.
Background/History: Ever since I can remember I have always been a very active person in sports and extracurricular activities. I started playing indoor soccer at age 3 and continued playing throughout my senior year of high school. I also played Tee ball and played baseball into Little League as a pitcher. I referred soccer for several years for Mendocino coast youth soccer league as a teenager. I grew up next to a park for the majority of my life where there was always some sort of sport being played on a daily basis with the neighborhood kids. As I started to get into my early teens, I started racing go carts, riding dirt bikes and hiking a lot, going fast and being in the woods was my life! After go carts, I started racing Mini Stock cars at Ukiah and Lakeport Speedway. I have always been a very hard worker with nothing handed to me. I’ve been working since I was old enough to know how to push a broom, cleaning up bays at my father’s carwash. In my early 20’s I started to become very interested in working out and eating healthy. I worked out hard 6 days a week and finally started to see the changes in my body and how it made me feel. From then on working out became an addiction to me and I have never stopped. After a couple years of working out I studied to become a Personal Fitness Trainer. Now I am a Double Certified Personal Fitness Trainer and Sports Nutritionist. I love what I do and I love being healthy and fit. Working out and staying active will always be a huge part of my lifestyle.
Sometimes you just need to find something that you’re truly passionate about in order to really start living…
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. Be YOU and only YOU… that’s what makes YOU so AMAZING!
Working out and not eating the right food is like plowing a field and not planting any seed; nothing will grow from it.
Get up & work towards what u love even when u don’t want to. Push thru the resistance & walk on the road less traveled…
Do not throw in the towel; use it for wiping the sweat off your face…
Why settle for GOOD when BETTER is available and BEST is achievable?
“Can’t” closes the door that was open –
“If only…” holds you still, just hoping –
“The perfect time” is this very moment –
Success is yours: Reach out and own it!!!
People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
