If you work with me as a personal trainer, I will help you fit exercise and healthy eating into your busy schedule. My professional knowledge and experience is essential to customizing a program to meet your individual needs. By building on my experience working with hundreds of clients over the years, I incorporate coaching techniques and workout programs that deliver results for my clients. In addition to effective cardiovascular and strength training workouts, the nutritional coaching provides a foundation for successful weight loss and a path to optimal health.
My training methodology is focused on the individual and the promotion of exercise as a lifestyle, not a hobby. I believe a healthy body is achieved via a balance of five components: flexibility, cardiovascular exercise, proper nutrition, supplementation, and strength training. Working with individuals on their own personal pursuit of wellness, I focus on making it a manageable part of their everyday life.
In addition to my passion for coaching others I also enjoy the performing arts, running, hiking, weight training, snowboarding, and time spent with family and friends, achieving true balance in my own life with the same energy and discerning focus I share with my clients. In addition to this, I have trained for and completed half marathons and shorter 5k and 10ks, as well as competing in figure competitions along with some of the nation’s top fitness models. I am always training to be a stronger, faster, and healthier athlete so that I can help my clients become the same.
I have been in practice for more than ten years and my credentials include: personal training certifications from the Poliquin Institute, American Council on Exercise, the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and as a C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Precision Nutrition certification, in addition to a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Colorado.
Growing up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, I developed a love for activity, exercise, and the outdoors at a young age. Because I loved being active and loved the positive impact it had on my life I wanted to share that with others through a career as a fitness and personal trainer in Carlsbad. I fully believe that many ailments and pain can be minimized or alleviated through regular physical activity and proper nutrition and supplementation.
My clients come from all walks of life … competitive athletes, dancers, entrepreneurs, executives, licensed professionals, educators and students, retirees and stay-at-home parents…. and maybe you?
