I create fitness programs that meet my client’s goals and needs so they progress and succeed in ways they never thought possible.
I earned my BS degree in Exercise and Sport Science from the UNC Greensboro. I am an AFFA Personal Trainer, a Russian Kettlebell Certified (RKC) Instructor and World Kettlebell Club Trainer. I’ve trained extensively in the Cary/Raleigh area for the past 25 years at Old-School Fitness, LifeTime Fitness, Prestonwood Country Club, the Cary YMCA and Rex Wellness Center.
I look forward to providing you with a unique fitness program you will love doing and be able to maintain for a lifetime.
I’m passionate about helping people achieve the highest quality of life through fitness recognizing that everyone is different with different goals and abilities.
Since 2003 I’ve pushed my clients past what they thought were their physical limits. They have achieved goals they didn’t think possible using intense programs rich in variety, challenging their minds, muscles and cardiovascular systems. Training at high-volume health clubs in the area has provided me with experience training people with varying goals, abilities and fitness levels.
I have certifications from the World Kettlebell Club and Kettlebell Concepts. As a kettlebell sport trainer, I enjoy training people who accept the challenge of this demanding sport. As a boxing enthusiast, I include aspects of the sport into my training sessions, including focus mitt and heavy bag work.
Reach your fitness goals through smart training, disciplined nutrition and determination.
