Personal Trainers

My favorite part of being a personal trainer is seeing the physical and mental progression in my clients as a result of the effort put forth through training. Being able to improve a person's overall wellness and self-efficacy is incredibly humbling and rewarding.  Having the ability to influence people in that aspect drives me. I am currently in-house certified and my favorite style of training is a mixture of circuit and high-volume training.

The most enjoyable part about being a personal trainer is teaching a client how to maximize their health and fitness potential through exercise and physical activity. It is very rewarding to see a client’s personal perception change for the positive as they become more confident in their physical and mental abilities when completing a challenging session. As a personal trainer, I like to incorporate the client’s interests along with other essential movements so the client has the tools and the confidence to construct a healthier, stronger and more positive life while on their fitness journey. My style of training is a fusion of weight training, circuit training, plyometric and calisthenics.

As a personal trainer I want to improve a client’s overall wellness and confidence to pursue a healthier and happier lifestyle. Being able to share my love of fitness with others is one of the most rewarding feelings. My favorite style of training is a mixture between circuit training and powerlifting.

As a personal trainer, it is my goal to take people who aren’t as happy with their bodies or health as they’d like to be, and help them make a change that will make them live happier and healthier lives. It is a great feeling knowing that I helped someone reach their goals to become a healthier person. My style of training mainly consists of weight training and high intensity interval training.

I love helping people reap the benefits of exercise: increased self-esteem, character development, improved appearance, stress reduction, decreased risk of injury and health diseases. I want to help you reach your goals by designing a personalized program and passing on the knowledge of movement. I specialize in encouraging those who have lacked motivation or self-esteem to get started and challenging those who are wanting to step up their game. From barbell to dumbbell, body weight to machines, cardio to flexibility, we can find what you enjoy and what challenges you. Working out can be fun!

As a personal trainer I want to improve my client’s knowledge on how to exercise safely and properly. I also want to enhance their knowledge on nutrition because it is the most important part of changing your body. For training I like to train short, intense, and efficient.
