I am an independent trainer who trains out of several locations (Chicago, Northbrook, Lakemoor), as well as my home gym in Wauconda. I am an IKFF Certified Kettlebell Teacher 1. I am also a NASM certified personal trainer and a CrossFit Level 1 trainer. Other experience that I have includes over 20 years of martial arts training. I’ve trained in Tae Kwon Do, Jun Fan/JKD, Kali, Muay Thai and boxing. I am passionate about fitness and consider myself a lifetime learner. I am regularly involved in continuing education to better my knowledge and to continue to evolve as a personal trainer. As a trainer I love to add kettlebells into my workouts along with other tools such as battling ropes, the TRX suspension trainer, sandbags, bulgarian bags, plyo boxes and of course barbells and dumbbells. In addition, I love to add in some boxing/kickboxing drills. Ultimately I want to keep it both interesting and challenging for the client.
