Finding My Fitness Journey and Helping You on Yours
As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, I take fitness training seriously. It was not always this way for me, though. I was 18 years old when I started working out in earnest, and I stayed commited, fighting back all of the resistance I felt to the new habit I was forming. Years later, I now understand how difficult it can be to juggle a family life with a fitness life and squeezing workouts into my childs schedule. If you a struggling to reach you fitness goals because of personal or professional commitments, I get it. I have been where you are, and I am here to tell you that you can take control of your fitness once and for all.
I had started going to the gym with a close friend when I was 18, but once he fell off our routine, I started to work out alone instead. That was when I saw some serious results, which inspired me to dig even deeper and work even harder. Soon, I was setting personal goals for myself, trying to complete 2Ks on the row machine and 2-mile runs on the treadmill faster than my best time. I was doing bodyweight exercises too, and the 60-second push up challenge quickly became a favorite of mine.
Fitness had already become the driving force in my life when I decided to make a career out of it in 2008. I took a job at my local gym in addition to working with the Birchfield harriers Track and Field Club in the UK for a year or so. In 2010, I completed my NASM Personal Trainer Certification, and in the years since, I have never stopped working, training people of many different backgrounds and ages.
Today, some of my favorite workouts are Olympic weightlifting, functional strength training, circuit training, running, rowing, and mobility/flexibility work. I believe in full and rounded workout routines that fit into your busy lifestyle so that you can condition your body completely and in a way that doesn’t burn you out.
