I have been training for 4 years now and I am passionate about changing people's lives. I have a thorough background in kinesiology as well as exercise physiology. My bachelors degree from Campbell University as well as my masters degree from the University of Tennessee has provided me with the proper tools to be a trainer. I have trained people that range anywhere from 5 to 90 years old that includes athletes, rehab patients, rotator cuff problems, knee injuries, and cardiac patients just to mention a few. I can modify any exercise as needed and am accommodating every single one of my clients.
My favorite client story
I was training a lady in her 50s and she had never exercised in her life. We started with her riding the bike for about 5 min before she got so winded. Eventually she was able to go 30 minutes without stopping and her shortness of breath was gone. We worked together for about 6 months and her she took another job in another state. Before she moved she thanked me for helping change her life and she has such a better outlook on life. Before she left I wrote her a plan to follow and one of the first things she did when she moved was that she found a place to workout. We stayed in touch briefly and she was able to work out on her own. Before working with me she had no clue what to do, but now is working out on a regular basis on her own.
