The importance of fitness and athletics were instilled in me at a very young age. Growing up amongst my older brother and his friends, I was shown no mercy during any endeavor. On a daily basis, I was forced to either keep up with them, or get left in their dust. Therefore, the fitter and faster I was, the less apt I was to be left behind. I truly believe that it was this start that allowed me to progress to the level I did in athletics. I was a 4 year Division 1 scholarship athlete and Team Captain at the University at Buffalo, in the sport of track and field. I then parlayed that talent into a 3 year stint with the US Skeleton Team, which culminated in an appearance at Olympic Trials in 2009.
In 2007, I decided to turn my love of fitness into a life-long career. It originated around a focus of athletic performance but quickly grew to include all facets of fitness. I work with everyone from pro athletes, to weekend warriors, to total couch potatoes and I truly love every second of it. Regardless of your current fitness level, if there is a goal on the horizon, it would be my absolute pleasure to assist you in reaching it.
