PERSONAL TRAINER AND GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR
My path toward health and wellness didn’t begin until later in life. Being a client of personal training in my late 20s, I started to see the benefits, both physical and mental, of taking care of my body. Coming back to personal training in my late 30s, and working at a great gym with positive, like-minded people inspired me to look into becoming a personal trainer. I studied through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and became certified in 2013. I later became credentialed in Corrective Exercise through NASM, and completed Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition course in 2015. The biggest thing I have learned is that we must never stop learning.
I have spent most of my life in the Hampton Roads area, and have enjoyed the opportunity that personal training affords to meet new people from all walks of life with a wide variety of goals; from losing weight, to gaining lean mass, to getting up from a kneeling position unassisted. There’s nothing better than sharing the moment with a client when they reach a milestone.
