As an advocate for health and exercise within the field of fitness, I have found that the science of exercise truly meets the art of living a holistically healthy life. My background in working with people and horses in an athletically competitive environment has fueled my passion for personal training. Through travel, and equestrian coaching, I discovered my sentiment for helping people achieve their greatest physical and psychological potential. Furthermore, working in settings such as physical therapy clinics, college campuses, and state of the art equestrian centers exposed me to a diverse population of individuals. As a trainer my main focus is on the benefits of cardiovascular health supplemented by resistance training which is built upon the foundation of quality movement.
