UNCC alumnus with a bachelors in Exercise Science. NASM certified. My goal is to change the world through exercise. So many of our health issues such as low back back, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc. can be changed through exercise. I am a huge advocate of proper form with lifting. I have been a personal trainer for the past 3 years training many clients at my university gym as well as my own private clients. Since I was young I knew I wanted to change the world in some way and this is the wawy that I feel I can make the greatest impact on other people's lives. The world we live in is at war with our lack of fitness to be the best people we can in our work place and just in life. My job and passion is to push people to levels they did not believe they could and see things they could not imagine by improving their fitness levels which will change all aspects of their lives.
My favorite client story
My favorite client story is a college student named Gabe. He could not move much weight at all when I first met him but as I continued to train him he fell in love with calisthenics and got extremely good at moves specific to his passion while also losing fat and gaining a very noticeable amount of muscle in the process.
My favorite exercise
The Bulgarian split squat
My favorite quote
"Born a peasant
Lived as a warrior
Died as Kings and Queens"
My training philosophy
Expose the weaknesses to build a solid base from the start. Whatever movement patterns we have that inhibit proper movements I fix those first and as a result enhance how long a clients can keep progressing while decreasing the risk of injury.
My training experience
I have trained a variety of clients from students at my university to staff members upwards of age 50. Some clients have wanted to gain muscle, some just wanted endurance, and most popularly most wanted to lose some weight and just feel better about themselves. I have trained many different clients. Some of which I still successfully trained despite varying levels of Asperger's and language barriers. I take pride in showing things and explaining in a way that everyone can understand without feeling belittled or intimidated.

George was a great trainer. He started by getting to know me and my goals. From there, he custom made a program based on by objectives. I didn't feel like he was giving me a canned program. It's been three weeks since I started working with George and I'm seeing results! I'm feeling energized and stronger. This is a big deal for a 45 y.o. woman lol! I would highly recommend George to anyone young and old. You won't be disappointed!
George is a wonderful trainer who is extremely kind and patient. George goes above and beyond in our sessions. He works hard to make me plans to follow when we aren’t meeting. It is a great price for above and beyond service.
George does an excellent job of setting personalized goals alongside well thought out workouts. He makes an effort to understand my limits and motivates me with these in mind. His sessions leave me feeling much more fit while also being knowledgeable of new workouts and ways to improve my health. Great trainer who I couldn’t recommend more.
George is very knowledgeable trainer. He truly understands the aspects of health and fitness!
Definitely recommend George. He's a cool guy and really knowledgeable. He gave me a lot of tips and tricks that helped me get my training and eating habits together. Finally looking forward to the summer!
George helped me kickstart my fitness journey! He’s knowledgeable, considerate and good at tailoring the routine to the client. A++ all around. I couldn’t recommend him more.
George is wonderful. In my first session with him he ran me through many tests to get an understanding of my physical ability. He explained the science behind everything he was doing and why that mattered for me and my health. George has kept me motivated (even though COVID) towards achieving my goals. He's funny, too, which really helps alleviate some of the pressure of the more awkward parts of working out. I would recommend him to anyone!
Training with George is excellent! Like I mentioned in the headline, he knows a lot. He is encouraging and provided me with lots of motivation and support to get through the workouts we have done together. Whatever your goals, whether you are a beginner and want someone who is patient and can provide guidance for your forays into fitness, or you're more serious about improving your lifts and techniques, George has you covered!
George is great! He is a super smart trainer who isn’t in it for a quick dollar. He is empathetic and so caring. He knows when a workout can go harder and when to back off so you can recover and stay injury free. Overall a fantastic trainer.
What I love the most is how patient George is. He proceeds at a pace you are comfortable with and makes sure to avoid injury. He cares a lot about form so that you can optimize the impact of every movement. I learned a lot, especially about the muscles that are being targeted. Strength training became something that I did with a fully engaged mind. It totally stepped up my game!
George is one of the best personal trainers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. George excels at the one on one experience and really prioritizes your goals. I 100% recommended working with him it’s the best decision I ever made!
George was great in getting me started on the right foot! We identified goals and are getting there with consistent excercise and a balanced diet. I recommend George to anyone from a total beginner to the athlete trying to maximize performance.
I've been training with George for about 3 weeks. I think he's awesome. He pushes you but not to the point of feeling discouraged. He's very knowledgeable about the muscular system and he knows the best exercise for each muscle group. And he is always concerned about performing any exercise safely to avoid any injuries. I would encourage anyone who is trying to get fit to give him a try.
George has been great. In the first session, he asked me what my goals are and helped me narrow down the initial goals to something achievable. He always makes sure to check on my form and asks me what parts of my body feel the exercise so he can know if I'm doing it correctly. After each set of exercises, he asks about the difficulty level so he can know what to adjust for next time. This showed me that he does care about how good of a workout I'm getting. I really like that I didn't need to buy anything new before training with him. We used everything I already had. I think no matter your level of fitness, he is a great trainer!
George is amazing! I have been though some health issues and haven’t worked out in forever so I’ll be honest- I was nervous to get a personal trainer. But after my first session with George I knew I made the best decision. He worked within my limitations and never once made me feel uncomfortable. He was my cheerleader and always checked in to make sure I was good with each exercise. I would highly recommend George!
George is a very caring trainer! Though I was only able to complete one training session due to personal circumstances, I look forward to coming back and completing a training package.
I've been training with George for several weeks now and I can honestly say that he is an excellent trainer! I am a beginner so I was looking for a trainer who would really take that into consideration because I do not want to be injured trying to reach my fitness goals, and he is delivering! He is very attentive, patient, and encouraging. I can tell he really puts thought into individualizing my program to efficiently and maximally address my areas of concern. I have chronic back pain and noticed it's been much better since I've started working out with him. He is also very personable and accommodating--I have a pretty rigid schedule due to the nature of my job and he has been able to work with me to come up with session times that fit both of our schedules. He is very accessible and responsive to inquiries between sessions. It is clear that he enjoys what he's doing and he's helping me a lot! I was skeptical about the virtual format, but it has worked out nicely – I always feel great after each session. Although I am creeping towards my fitness goals at a slower pace (by design/at my request because of some chronic injuries), I truly feel like my body is being transformed. Choose George for your fitness/training needs--you won't be disappointed!
I began working with George a few weeks ago in an effort to recommit myself to personal fitness in a more disciplined way. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about exercise science, George is thorough and always encouraging during our sessions. He is flexible, patient, and extremely approachable, particularly if you’re totally new to personal fitness/the gym. I would highly recommend him!
Excellent Trainer! I started working with George to help address high blood pressure and get into better shape, and he has helped me get my blood pressure under control in just one month. The workouts have been tailored to what I need and my personal goals. He’s also helped me stay accountable and active between workout sessions. I highly recommend George to anyone interested in getting into shape or trying to improve your health with healthy eating and exercise!
George is great at explaining the purpose of each exercise and designing a program to meet my goals. He encourages and pushes me beyond what I could do on my own.
