Exercise Science, Ace Certified Personal Trainer

"As an Exercise Science, Ace Certified Personal Trainer, I have a passion for functional fitness, but I'm very versed in the field of bodybuilding as well as powerlifting. To coach, one has to have some experience in the field, understand the different modalities of fitness, and specifically gear the training program toward the client's goals. Whatever your goals are, if you give me your max efforts, I'll ensure we achieve them!"
