Education & Experiences

What I've learned and who I've helped

My Brains for Your Brawn

I believe strongly in education, and have completed both university/college level course-work and certifications through accredited, well-recognized, national/international associations in the fitness & health industry. I continue to further my education by pursuing additional certifications in fitness, health, and nutrition, and strive to stay on top of this constantly evolving industry, ensuring my clients receive the best training for their needs.

This isn't a hobby for me - I am dedicated to staying abreast of industry trends and changes, committed to ongoing education so I can provide the best service possible.

Past Experiences & Successes

The following is a list of my past experiences/successes, and I continue to add to this list, always willing and happy to work with whomever I have the good fortune to train.
