My favorite client story

Nicole for sure! Mother of 2, Director of Operations at Amazon. She came to me at her heaviest, 52% body fat. Felt that she was successful in her life except when it comes to taking care of herself. Training with me, we worked together to overcome her personal battles and lost over 20 lbs in 3 months. This is why I quit my former job.. to help people like Nicole!!

My favorite exercise

My training philosophy

My training experience

4 years training clients. I used to be chained to me desk, I did not grow up as an athlete! When I used to work for corporate, I gained a lot of weight and felt exhausted. I figured it out for myself and lost over 30 lbs, 5'4, which is a lot! I got very strong in the process. I went from taking group exercises classes, to then TEACHING them! Then I got my ACE certification and did Crossfit for a few years. From there I decided to do Personal Training full time. Been 4 years!
