Hometown: Austin, Texas
What is your background?
Military Veteran turned Wellness Entrepreneur. I started by getting my own results with Herbalife Nutrition five years ago and coaching others through fit camps and online group challenges. I decided to hone in on my craft and add additional knowledge to the fitness side of my business. I loved what I was learning in my CPT course, so took it a step forward and began personal training.
Tell us about your current fitness goals and training.
My goals are to prevent injuries and strengthen my weaknesses from many years of wear and tear. I’ve solely been focused on rehabbing my left shoulder after waking up to it being dislocated two years ago. Perfecting form, getting stronger and feeling good.
What is the most common fitness myth you work through with your clients?
Spot reduction of fat. (Toning and losing their stomach but keeping their glutes.) I understand the mindset around losing fat in certain areas but I let clients know that if they want to lose body fat in a certain area they will need to focus on lowering their overall body fat % and gaining lean muscle mass in desired areas.
What do you want your clients to take away from each training session with you?
If we get stronger physically and mentally each session while having fun and actually enjoying the session, I’ve done my part in making your day, week, month, year, and life that much better.
What sets you apart from other fitness professionals?
I enjoy the small wins and will point them out to my clients every time. They may not have felt like working out today but if they made it to their session, that’s a win. I am committed to my personal growth in my personal and professional life to add value to the client.
Favorite quote and who said it?

If you had a superpower what would it be?
My super power would be the ability to teleport. I love traveling and seeing what the world has to offer but time isn’t always on my side. I want to teleport and travel the world. Magic carpet would be nice too. Hehe
