Okay, Okay, Okay, a little (a lot) bit about me…
I am a certified Personal Trainer with over 20 years experience in fitness. I have a passion for life, a passion for fitness, and a passion for helping others.
I grew up in Northern California, and currently reside in Sacramento, CA.
I specialize is helping folks obtain their fitness goals and create life-long fitness habits.
My passion for fitness started my sophomore year of high school. I took a Physical Education class that offered weight training. I thought “huh, this could be an easy class.” It was not an easy class, but it did change my life forever. The first week of the class, I was literally a train wreck. I was clumsy with the weights, and weak compared to some (most) of the other kids. However, after the first week, a spark ignited within me. I started becoming less clumsy, and my strength was increasing. About three weeks into the class, the instructor became my workout partner. From then on, with his guidance, I started making gains in strength, conditioning, and my self-confidence.
Through the years, during difficult and challenging times, fitness was always my anchor. Fitness was something that I not only loved, but seemed to excel at. After a few different careers, I settled on the fact that helping folks reach their fitness goals was the right career path for me.
I understand what it is like to be heavy. While I may love fitness and being healthy, I was plagued with a super slow metabolism. I gain weight extremely easy. Couple that with an extreme sweet tooth and a fondness for eating, and it has been and can be disastrous for me. For me, sustaining a healthy and ideal weight is a daily task that I really have to concentrate on. I love fitness and I love exercising, so I know if it is a task for me to stay in shape, then for some, it may prove to be quite difficult. That is why I have made it my main goal of making fitness simple and helping as many people as possible achieve their fitness goals!
I enjoy real estate, reading, cycling, running, hiking, lifting weights, kayaking, technology, fishing, watching paranormal shows, garden railroading, and cooking.
