strength and conditioning, mma fighting, functional training, and class instruction
Martial arts entered my life in the first grade at my hometown YMCA. At the age of 15, I spent extensive time in Thailand, where I trained Muay Thai and became infused in martial arts culture. I became aware of the value of martial arts as a tool to bring focus and balance to ones life.
Coupled with my background in Biology, I’ve formed an understanding of the ways that Martial arts and physical training could impact a persons life and functionality.
I began working as a personal trainer because I enjoy seeing the positive, influential change that people have in their lives when they strive toward, and ultimately reach their fitness goals. I feel a great sense of pride when I see clients push themselves and get past what they perceive as their own limitations.
