Credentials & Experience PNBA Pro Men's Physique Competitor Health Fitness Major Nutrition Minor Ace CPT CPR Certified
WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
I participated in many sports growing up such as gymnastics, soccer, and baseball. Throughout middle school and my freshman year of high school I played basketball, but made a transition to bodybuilding. I have been training since sophomore year of high school, and began competing in 2018. While competing that year, I earned my PNBA Pro Men's Physique card, and have competed in four shows total. In November of 2019, I competed in the Natural Olympia in Las Vegas.
I am currently an exercise science major with a minor in nutrition at Central Michigan University. While working towards my degree, I have received my ACE personal training certification. I enjoy any and all fitness related activities. I have participated in powerlifting, CrossFit, and Olympic lifting. I chose this field due to the goal of seeking knowledge. I enjoy learning about different types of stimuli that lead to various adaptations. The human body is an amazing machine, and that is exemplified through training. I believe that training causes adaptations both in and out of the the gym creating a more disciplined and motivated individual. After graduating, my goal is to obtain my CSCS and receive my Master's Degree in exercise physiology. While obtaining my masters degree, I would like to receive an Olympic weight lifting and FMS certification. After obtaining my Master's, I will become a strength and conditioning coach at the collegiate or professional level.
What is your greatest fitness achievement?
My greatest fitness achievement was attaining my PNBA Pro card and competing in the Natural Olympia in Vegas.
What motivates you?
My family, friends, and girlfriend motivate me. I want to be the best version of myself for them. They have always pushed me to train for my bodybuilding shows, to study for my next exam, and to demonstrate qualities such as respect and integrity.
How did you develop your program?
I do not typically use a cookie-cutter program. Programming vary depending on the client’s goals and training age. For example, a linear style program may be effective for clients with weight loss goals, but a daily undulating program is much more effective for increasing strength.
What are your specialties?
I like to think I am a jack of all trades. I have worked with a large variety of clients with different goals. I specialize in bodybuilding, strength training, athletic performance, and general weight loss.
What's your training style?
My training style varies. I like to implement a style that is fitting to the client. An athlete or bodybuilder may like a trainer that is more intense, but general population may not appreciate that same level of intensity. I like to coach in a way that is most effective for my clients.
How do you set & track goals for your clients?
Progress is measured in the amount of weighted lifted, body composition, weight, and through transformation pictures and posing (for bodybuilding clients).
Why will your services be worth it for clients?
A trainer who has not helped a client reach their goals, is a trainer that has failed.
