Location: Palos Verdes Estates, CA
I wanted to find a physical job after high school where I could maintain a fit lifestyle so I joined the United States Marine Corps and then the Army.
After the military, I was motivated to become a personal trainer and black belt in martial arts. I have worked in the gyms since 2003 and got a Black Belt in Hapkido in 2006. I also train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Ashihara Karate.
My personal training certification is NASM based, and I especially liked their concept of integrated training. I was drawn to the IKFF (International Kettlebells and Fitness Federation), because of their core values and now I am glad to be part of the team. I work with all fitness levels, and I am passionate about integrating both corrective exercise and kettlebells into martial arts.
