Our personal trainers are here to help you reach all your fitness goals. Each trainer has their own philosophy and areas of expertise, so take some time to review their bios to find out which one best fits your needs.
No two people will have the same experience when it comes to fitness. Everyone’s fitness journey is individually unique. However, one way in which all of our fitness journeys are a like is that we all start somewhere! Starting is often the hardest part, this can be for many reasons whether that is a lack of motivation, intimidation of the gym, or a dread of working out altogether. My goal as a personal trainer is to eliminate any of these factors that might be holding you back from beginning your own fitness journey. As your trainer, I will be your biggest cheerleader, I will create a positive unintimidating environment, and lastly my hope is to make working out something you learn to love rather than dread. I promise to commit to you and all I ask is that you do the same. Together we will work toward accomplishing your goals and reaching your full potential!
At some point in high school, I discovered the gym and immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and the people there. I spent a lot of time in group fitness at the YMCA, learned how to lift, and how to lead a healthy lifestyle. From then on, fitness became a huge part of my life, but I had no idea just how far it would take me. It completely transformed my outlook on life, helped me find a major I was passionate about, and brought me into contact with some amazing people. I believe that no matter what situation you come from or what your background is, becoming physically fit and active is achievable and essential to living your best life! I am here to assist you on your unique fitness journey. I will help you create a fun fitness program to help you reach your goals and become the best version of yourself! With hard work and dedication, you too can watch your body and your life transform in ways you didn't think possible.
Physical exercise has so many benefits for the mind and body. By consistently going to the gym, and finding a form of exercise you enjoy, you can improve your endurance, strength, mental health, self-esteem, and so much more! Health and fitness have been passions of mine for as long as I can remember.

I believe that wellness of the mind and body are what really define an individual’s health. Exercise is a great way to enhance an individual’s overall wellness. Exercise does not always have to be grueling and intense. It can be enjoyable and extremely rewarding. As a football and baseball player in high school, I learned quickly that staying active not only helped me compete, it allowed me to feel good about myself. Going to the gym was not always something I looked forward to. It can be discouraging at times when you are unmotivated and do not initially have a plan of attack. I learned to focus on my own personal goals, start to become educated in fitness and not compare myself to other individuals. Take the first step into investing in your wellness by exercising. As your personal trainer, I will be sure to create an encouraging, safe, effective and enjoyable environment for you to reach your fitness goals and build healthy habits. Let’s get after it!
I started my fitness journey in 8th grade and have fallen in love with fitness since then. Outside of the Student Fitness Center, I train for powerlifting and am currently working towards participating in another powerlifting meet. I also love to hike, take walks, bike, and perform H.I.I.T and sprint routines. With this background, rest assured I will keep our workouts fun and exciting! Overall, I believe that our human bodies are meant to be active. The mental/physical connection that fitness provides is essential to maintaining a healthy balance in life. Fitness also teaches patience, dedication, perseverance, and is a good stress reliever in the middle of your day. A moving body is a healthy body and as a personal trainer, I will help you strive to reach your full potential and have plenty of “AHA!” moments in a safe environment. I would love to work with you to achieve your goals!
Health and fitness have become such an important part of my lifestyle, and I can’t stress enough on the positive impact it’s made on me. I was never heavily involved in sports, rather, I was and still am a musician. I found ways to keep my body healthy by going to the gym and researching different diets. Like most, I never knew where to start, and I wanted results in an instant. Through my personal experience within the past 5+ years, I’ve learned that results won’t come in an instant. But, if you trust the process, learn to stay patient, and enjoy the process, you’ll get the results you’re working for. I know how confusing and overwhelming it can be to start a healthy lifestyle, not wanting to give up your favorite foods and not wanting the gym to consume your life. This is why I believe I can help you find the perfect balance for your new healthy lifestyle, teaching you ways to maintain it permanently, while being able to enjoy the things that make you happy. I believe if you give me your all, I can help you achieve any realistic goal you have, and I can help you maintain that for when you no longer need a trainer!
Why wait to start becoming the best version of yourself? When giving your body the strength and fuel it needs, you can grow in ways you never thought imaginable. By exercising and working in daily activity, you will start to feel positive changes in life. As your personal trainer, it is my job to make you feel comfortable and see those positive changes come to life. My fitness journey has become so much more to me than working out. It's making healthy daily choices that create habits, and help you reach your goals. I have such a passion for health and wellness and I love to share it with others. Work out with me and I will make sure that this experience can be challenging, but also rewarding and exciting along the way.
Over the past few years, I have fallen in love with fitness and all of its beautiful benefits. Being able to be healthy and fit can have such a positive impact on your mind and body. If I can share my love for health with more people, I will be extremely grateful. No two people have the same fitness journey, and I want to be able to help you find yours. Taking the first few steps are always the hardest, but you are taking them in the right direction. Being able to be versatile and flexible with each client is crucial for finding that perfect routine. I strive to make exercising fun, safe, encouraging, and structured. It is important to trust the process and make sure to do what makes you happy and healthy. As your personal trainer, I believe I can help you either start or continue your fitness journey and assist you to succeed in the future!

As your personal trainer I will help you create these habits and be there with you every step of the way. Fitness is fun!
“Fall in love with taking care of your body.” Fitness has been a passion of mine for many years now. Throughout my fitness journey I have bettered my own work ethic, gained confidence in myself, along with gaining strength and endurance. Those are all attributes I hope to instill in others throughout the personal training experience. My goal as a trainer is to help my clients reach their personal, individual goals. While also finding their own passion in living a healthy lifestyle and falling in love with taking care of their bodies. Your goals may scare you, and that’s okay. That’s part of my job, to break down those big goals into small achievievable goals that act as stepping stones working towards achieving the big goal. Over the years I have educated myself immensely on the benefits of weight training, HIIT training, and nutrition. I am also extremely knowledgeable in circuit training. Your hopes and dreams of achieving that healthy lifestyle you have yearning for, for so long are not that far out of reach. I would love to work with you and encourage you towards those goals. You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for. So let’s tackle this journey together!

I am here to help you achieve those goals, make working out fun, and make sure you obtain all the possible benefits you get from working out.

Movement is medicine! Lack of movement is the reason why we lose range of motion, not age. The ability to move your body and joints will help you lift heavier, run longer, and decrease your chances of injury. Many things in fitness work, it's my job to find what sounds best for you and what's most sustainable. I strive to keep exercises and training interesting, educational, and fun while always keeping your goal in mind. I will meet you where you are each day and push you to feel successful. Exercise should never feel like a chore, but there's a real art to making it enjoyable, doable, and possible to maintain for the long run. My role is to support you as you get to a state where you are confident enough, and physically capable of accomplishing anything that you set out to do. By the end of our time together, you will feel amazing without losing any of the fun along the way.
I believe anyone can be fit. I grew up active, but I was never truly fit. Then I found exercise, specifically functional fitness training, and it changed my life! I want to see exercise change yours too! I believe that the effort you put in is directly proportional to the results you will see. If you give your all, you will see better results than if you just coast through life. I want to help you get good at life; not just exercise. The habits you will develop training with me will directly translate to your everyday life. Health is all-encompassing. If your physical health improves, your mental health can be positively affected, as well as many other aspects of health! I also believe that fitness, done right, is never boring! We will travel this new path together, and we will have a blast along the way!
