Six years in the United States Navy taught me a lot about physical readiness. While traveling throughout Europe serving my country I attended college at University of Maryland online before transferring to Central Texas College. The time spent in the navy also contributed directly to my personal training certificate obtained through the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers and also awarded me with a variety of certificates in fitness and nutrition. My massage therapy and esthetician licensing from the Aveda Institute in Tallahassee Fl, provided me with advanced and cutting edge stretching and healing practices that I incorporate into each workout session.
For the last 8 years my clients have included celebrities, dancers, models, actors, musicians, marathoners, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, politicians, students, military, and State Department employees, to name a few! I enjoy the challenge of creating effective workout routines that fit in with a person’s unique lifestyle, schedule, and goals.
The most challenging and rewarding part of my work involves training people with various health problems. I have helped clients with weight loss, heart disease, MS, cancer, hypertension, HIV, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain, post-rehab, and many other conditions.
When possible, I work in conjunction with a client’s doctor or physical therapist in setting up safe and effective exercise programs to help improve their quality of life.
