I believe that living a healthy lifestyle starts with a fit healthy mindset. My aim as your Personal Trainer is to help you identify your fitness goals, design a program that fits your needs and lead you through every workout. If you are ready to make a positive life change, I am here to help. My years of experience and holistic approach to fitness and health will have you feeling fit in no time.
I got into this business the way that most people make big changes, through tragedy. In 2007, while working as an insurance sales manager I got a call from home that my big brother (Rodney) had been rushed to the hospital as a result of a heart attack. He didn't survive. Four years later I got a call that my big sister (Robin) had gotten into her car, intoxicated, and died on impact after hitting a tree. As the last of my mother's children, I was granted the opportunity to give my mom care. She had been disabled previously from a massive stroke and she died about 2 years after my sister. I had already been a fitness enthusiast (but not certified) and at that moment I knew it was time for me to make a change. I couldn't save my family from lifestyle-related health issues, but maybe I could save someone else. I coach with my heart, to make my family proud.
