Do you have a goal? Are you motivated, hard-working and already aware of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle? Are you a weekend warrior, wanting to stay active without injury or a competitive athlete, wanting to train and condition for the next level? My goal as a personal trainer is to optimize the health, training and competition performance of every client I train. I have found that the endeavors that I have set my mind/body and heart to, have always guided me towards athletic training/fitness training as a profession. I earned a full athletic scholarship to Weber State where I played 4 years of NCAA Division 1 Soccer and simultaneously earned my degree in Exercise Science and Human Performance with and Emphasis in Athletic Training and a Minor in Teaching and Coaching.
Those intense, exciting and physically demanding years took me places and helped me make connections that I cherish to this day. However, those years also took a toll on my body. Even with all the training, knowledge, and experience I had acquired during those college years, sometimes accidents happen, accidents that set you back a few paces. In my case, I found myself fresh out of college with a great education, memories of NCAA tournament appearances, and a degree in my hand; I also found myself heading to a pre-op appointment with a spine surgeon. Yes, I was damaged. My physical body was not able to do what I had always come to expect of it. This was not only physically painful, but it hurt emotionally and mentally. I had suffered my fair share of ankle injuries and knee issues and shoulder issues over the years, and always seemed too tough-through them or rehab my way to the next competition. Spinal Surgery was a whole different issue. Since then I have come to realize that exercise and fitness improves one’s lifestyle from a physical, mental, and emotional standpoint. It is something that can always be taken to another level and it has many facets. As individuals, we each require different programs to help us reach our own specific goals and I am prepared to guide you along the way. I specialize in developing training programs for athletic performance enhancement, such as:
Athletic Offseason Training – focusing on Strength, Endurance, Conditioning, Resistance, and Core Work.
Athletic In Season Training – focusing on Speed, Agility, Core, and maintaining overall Strength and Endurance.
General/Personalized Training – strength, speed, power, endurance, flexibility, mobility, agility, resistance training, mental preparedness (including goal setting), and nutrition.
