Education & Experience: Certified personal trainer (AFAA-CPT, NSCA-CSCS, AFAA-Group Fitness)
I grew up as an overweight kid who used video games and food as a crutch—to help find some measure of “control” within my chaotic childhood. Needless to say, my relationship with food spiraled out of control—and I developed a deep lack of self-confidence. But when I picked up a basketball for the first time, everything changed.
I played basketball at SUNY New Paltz, where I discovered the profound benefits of the weight room. Through my fitness studies, I met a network of truly powerful human beings, and helped everyone from celebrity chefs to soccer moms to high school athletes live their best lives. I realize fitness goals vary from person to person—but that’s no barrier; I’m passionate about helping all people learn to master their minds and bodies.
