I have special knowledge about weight loss and finding motivation to improve personal health and fitness. In 1996 I lost my leg, below the knee, in a motorcycle accident and subsequently ballooned from 175 to 285 pounds. Feelings of despair and my doctor’s warning of permanent health risks made me decide to change my life. I lost 100 pounds and eight years later I am in the best physical condition of my life. My own journey led me to pursue my passion for teaching and inspiring others to achieve their goals. I am a Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA), kettlebell instructor (IKFF certified), youth coach and silver sneaker certified. I continually educate myself in techniques for all physical abilities and establish strong working relationships with my clients. I enjoy training people who are inspired to work hard and have fun. I have also worked with elite-level athletes to improve sport-specific strength and conditioning. I take pride in knowing whether my clients are 11, 81 or anywhere in between, my personalized plans, hands-on approach and ongoing encouragement give each client the confidence to improve their lifestyle with lifelong results.
