American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer

National Physique Committee (NPC) Competitor 

My fitness journey started after high school graduation, after investing many years into the sport of wrestling once I stepped off the mat for the last time I began to question what the future would hold for me. Many others before me had graduated and gained an unhealthy amount of weight and regressed into old sedentary habits, I didn’t want that to happen to me. I decided I was going to invest my time and energy into staying in shape and adopting a healthier lifestyle. After much time spent learning and building my own body, I decided I wanted to compete in a Classic physique show. I managed to lose nearly 60 pounds and achieved the physique I had always dreamed of having. Afterwards, I knew that if changing my body and my mindset could bring me this much fulfillment, and happiness in all aspects of life, I could help others do the same.


I believe I am best suited for Training clients with Strength & conditioning as well as weight loss goals. My approach to training is to educate a client on safe and effective training practices to optimize success in achieving any given fitness goal. I emphasize Multi joint movements accompanied by single joint movements as a way to effectively facilitate muscular growth & development.
