I'm an experienced college level coach who would love to help people improve their athletic performance or just hit personal fitness goals. I prefer a holistic approach to training as I believe that moving the physical body are not the only ways to lead a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition matters, sleep matters and attitude. I believe our mental and spiritual selves must also be in align to experience the best gains from our efforts. Life balance is the key to life fitness.
