My passion for fitness started when I was about 15 years old. On the path to obesity with a sedentary lifestyle, I became involved in sports.  I was always determined to work harder than most because nothing came natural to me. When I joined the military in 2000, I had to train intensely due to my job title. All my running, swimming, lifting and nutrition paid off. I was in great shape and would always get asked questions from people in my unit about what kind of exercises I did. That turned into me helping others and leading fitness programs. I have not looked back since. I came out of the military 4 years later with an Honorable Discharge. I also received 3 Achievement medals, Defense Service Medal, and Armed Expeditionary medal for Operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Jordan. It wasn’t long after my civilian life began I was in school to become a professional in the Fitness industry. I worked at 24 hour fitness while attending U of H. I began training independently and ran a boot camp for five years. I became interested in crossfit in 2008 and received my first crossfit certification. My determination to help others has made me strive to remain active in the fitness community and learn the best methods for teaching my clients.  I now have a training studio to accommodate my passion for fitness.
