    Fitness Background:

    Working out and training has always been an important staple in my life! Ever since grade school, I realized that if I wanted to excel in sports, being physically strong was an essential ingredient. Once I joined the corporate work force, co-workers would ask me for assistance in getting themselves into shape. This is when it hit me to make a career out of helping others doing something that I love and can relate to on a daily basis. From there, I knew that fitness coaching was my life's goal!. In 2014, James and I signed on as the first GYMGUYZ franchisees and have loved every day since!

    I am an avid golfer but also have a passion for other sports such as football and baseball. My purpose and mission in life is to do what I love! For me, waking up every day to help people live longer, healthier lives is a passion on mine and something that keeps me motivated! My passion for fitness is shown in every session either I or one of our trainers conducts.

    Reason Why You Became a Personal Trainer :

    Growing up in Ridgefield CT I participated in a variety of sports and activities. I was always viewed as the short skinny kid and didn’t have the knowledge or skills to change that. After going through numerous injuries which forced me out of most of the activities, I knew I wanted to help prevent this from happening to as many other people as I could.

    I then went to seek the education needed to be successful. I love working with people and helping them to reach their goals and prove to themselves they are capable of anything if given the right tools and motivation for success. I look forward to working together with you all!
