“As your trainer, I will do my upmost to help you achieve your goals. In my 9 years of experience, I have a working expertise in multiple areas of fitness including kinesiology, linear and non-linear periodization, bodybuilding, corrective exercise and rehabilitation, functional/foundational fitness, physical therapy and nutrition.
Although I have almost a decade of experience in multiple disciplines of fitness, I have honed my specific focus to functional/foundational fitness as it lends itself to enabling you to accomplish day to day activities. This area of study really focuses on mobility, tissue preparation, biomechanical variation and 3D global movements, which is going to help you move as efficiently as possible.
In my free time I enjoy everything that this great city has to offer including live music, museums, and outdoor physical activities. As active as I like to stay, I love a night in binging whatever I can find on Netflix and rewatching every Marvel movie and Disney movie.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, and I hope this short glimpse into who I am will give you frame of mind as to what I can help you accomplish!”
