My fitness journey has taken me through several transformations, one in which to become a trainer and help others to either get started on their journey or to continue to become more advanced in their specialization. In return, I hope to make a positive impact on my clients in order to help them live life to the fullest. I have always loved how becoming fit or stronger is a competition between no one other than yourself and your own will power.
Currently, alongside of being a personal trainer, I am also a band director and musician. I received my Bachelors of Music Education from the University of North Texas with a concentration in euphonium. A lot of people do not know what the euphonium is, which also helps start a conversation with the mystery of playing it professionally. Most euphonium players train to perform with a military band, which is how I originally was inspired to become a personal trainer. A lot of amateur athletes are prone to injury due to bad technique, and I wanted to help as much as I can to make a difference. Music is one of my passions, but fitness is as well.
The types of clients that I have worked with in the past have been some of the top high school athletes, specializing in helping them run faster for longer durations, for overall core strength and balance, and weightlifting. I have also worked with clients that have 50+ pounds to lose. I have instructed both group and solo training sessions.
As for a typical session, it is customized based off of your overall fitness goals and needs. Usually the first couple sessions are informational and we will do some basic movements in order to see what muscles are in alignment. Depending on the first couple sessions, this will determine how fast or slow we need to move together to achieve your goal. I want to help you achieve your goal in the most efficient way possible, but we cannot cut corners either or risk injury.
