MEET OUR TRAINERS:

  • About Me:
    "“My first experience in the world of fitness came as a teenager joining an MMA gym. Over ten years I saw countless lives, including my own, be transformed by embracing a healthy lifestyle. As I have learned and grown in fitness, I have developed a love for helping others find not only what works for them, but what makes them want to work for themselves toward healthier, happier lives overall. I like to blend a traditional approach to training with the mindset and some techniques from my martial arts training to create a mindful, balanced, and individualized experience that gets the job done, and done well.”"
