My passion is being active. I find it disheartening when athletic pursuits lead to aches, pains, and injuries when the goal is to strengthen the body and improve health. I am also incredibly frustrated with the lack of  scientifically-backed fitness practices that exists in our world. I’ve dedicated my coaching pursuits to finding the most efficient, effective ways to train for particular goals while incorporating injury prevention techniques that allow clients to care for their bodies so they can be active throughout their lives. I also believe in education, in teaching others about their bodies, fitness, and nutrition so they can lives independent of a coach or trainer.
