I am the Founder, President, and Co-Owner of The Fitness Formula. My certifications include BTF B-FIT, ISSA and TRX. I’ve been in the fitness industry now for over 30 years and it is my passion to help others make fitness a lifestyle as I have. My wife Kelli and I created The Fitness Formula to provide an efficient, effective, and safe fitness program that provides sustainable results and lifestyle changes for anyone who wants to achieve a better, healthier life.
I first experienced wearing a heart Rate monitor and viewing my HR on a screen at a fitness trade show in Chicago in 2010. WOW! What a game changer! No more perceived exertion. I knew right where my heart rate was during the workout and it allowed me to push harder and get the most out of the session. It also showed me when to lay off and recover. It was amazing. I’ve carried that seed with me until now and that’s why we use it in all of our classes and sessions. It’s simply the smartest way to exercise.
I, like many of our members, love to hate the Versaclimber. It’s been around since the 80’s and I stumbled upon it again while training in a local YMCA combining circuits of rowing, running, climbing, weights and core work. It’s a total body, no impact, calorie burning machine! It is also the inspiration that drove the concept for the Studio. This workout regimen combined with HR monitoring became the dream that is now The Fitness Formula.
I personally have a passion for running and have completed multiple 5k races, a half marathon, as well as a full marathon. I love to run! I also dabbled with a sprint triathlon and really enjoyed it. I am planning on more! I also love any type of weight/resistance/body weight and functional training. Fitness has always been part of my life and I believe it is essential to a happy fulfilled existence.
I really enjoy working with my private training clients and group classes. Something about pushing someone to their full potential is really rewarding to me and I love the relationship and interaction that I get to experience when training my clients. It fuels my passion to help others achieve results. If you choose to train with me I will give you my all and I will expect the same from you.
