Starting off on your fitness journey can be challenging by itself. For certain individuals, it is necessary to have specialized, individual training. I will customize a routine and give you the individual attention you need to achieve your fitness goals.
You don't always have to do it alone. Sometimes working out with someone can make it easier and more fun. You can sign up with friends, co-workers, or family members. I can also pair you with a partner(s). "The more the merrier."
With today’s busy work and traveling lifestyles, it’s understandable that not everyone can work out in a traditional, routine setting such as a gym. Being able to train online via Skype or FaceTime is essential to connecting with your trainer and remaining disciplined to a routine. With today's technology, you are just a few clicks away from completing your workout no matter where you are. Boom!
I'm a National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association (NESTA) certified personal fitness trainer dedicated to helping my clients make fitness and nutrition a holistic journey (lifestyle) and not merely a destination (goal). Originally from South Jersey, I served in the U.S. Navy and since have earned a Bachelors degree in Marketing with an emphasis in Sports Nutrition.
Not only has fitness and nutrition always been a part of my life, they were instrumental in saving my life. Late January 2012, I was infected with Bacterial Meningitis and underwent brain surgery. During surgery, my heart rate fell to 20 beats per minute (nearly a flat line). The doctors said my strength and health pulled me through the surgery. After only three months of therapy, I was cleared to resume training with a renewed focus and energy, on a mission to make people aware that it is not difficult to make changes in your life when it comes to fitness and nutrition.
Since the surgery, I have made several notable appearances, including a television debut on the Food Network Channel show Good Eats playing Clarence in the Another Man Food Show: Breakfast episode; an interview in IDEA Fitness Journal, January 2012 issue along with client Alton Brown (writer, editor of the Food Network, "Alton Brown Talks Food & Fitness"); a theatrical debut in Community Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia as Mitch in "Strength & Vulnerability"; and a film debut as a Peacekeeper in The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire released November 2013.
In addition, I am an avid salsa dancer (salsero), mainly cuban "casino" style salsa (casinero), and I'm very active in attending salsa dance studios/socials throughout the metro Atlanta area. This unique experience in dancing salsa helps me to connect with and encourage clients to have effective and challenging cardio/anaerobic activity while getting in shape. My Salsa with ME (Metabolic Exercise) is a metabolic conditioning class I’ve designed to incorporate both challenging, high-intensity, full-body anaerobic exercises along with fun salsa moves to burn fat, build lean muscle, increase metabolism, and learn salsa while getting in fantastic shape!
The commitment and presence I bring as a former Naval airman, actor, and salsa dancer is the same that I bring as a personal fitness trainer and expert. Those personal experiences have fueled my passion to help my clients incorporate fitness and nutrition programs that promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle. I am ready to help you start your personal fitness journey, so don't wast another minute. Request a free consultation/evaluation today!
