I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and a Certified Cycling Instructor through Keiser Sports; I am currently working towards a massage therapy license through St. Louis MedTech and a NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign.
I was a four-sport athlete in high school but it wasn’t until I herniated a disc in my spine that my love for fitness turned into a career. After my injury, I devoted my life to figuring out the safest and most effective ways to achieve my fitness goals. My schooling at UIUC has provided me extensive knowledge in human anatomy, physiology, and the most recent research in exercise science. Furthermore, by participating in the Illini Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, and Olympic Weightlifting Organizations I can bring insight from my own training career to the client.
My training philosophy is focused on providing clients with fun, safe, and efficient programs tailored to the clients’ specific needs. Anything is achievable with efficiency and consistency; if you train with me you will achieve your goals in the fastest, safest, and most enjoyable way possible!
