My journey began when I was 16 years old. I wanted to change my unhealthy lifestyle. Sitting at 98 lbs, addicted to gaming and struggling with depression, something had to change. The thought of working out had been on my mind for years at that point, but I thought that I was too small to start lifting weights. I nearly deemed it impossible. So I waited until I turned 17 and started going to the gym with no experience. I was intimidated by everyone because it looked like they knew what they were doing, yet I would sit on a bench and question what I am doing in the first place.

I self-doubted and was uncomfortable, nervous and scared. Because of that, I wanted to learn how to train. So I took it upon myself to learn what I needed to achieve my goals. Through research, I discovered the work involved to reach my goals – setting up a workout regimen, nutrition plan and sleeping schedule – was going to change my lifestyle for the better.

The self-determination to learn about training then drove me to find my mentor, Turk Fickling, who has taught me his 26+ years of experience that’s led me to be far ahead. What inspires me as a personal trainer is guiding each client toward their desired goals so no one has to struggle with confusing information as I once did through the internet.

My mission is simple. I want to help you feel better, sexier, and strong as hell. There is nothing of more value to me than helping someone go through an experience that makes them feel happy, confident, and strong.

I want to help you discover the benefits and joys of training that helped me become the person I am today. My fitness journey became serious when I realized how my sedentary lifestyle was affecting my physical and mental health. I had no choice but to drop all of my excuses and start over again. The hardest part about it was dedicating myself to start, but when you start seeing and feeling the changes it becomes harder to stop. I am a firm believer that exercise will have a positive impact in every aspect of your life.

I am dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, and I am constantly looking for new ways to keep fitness exciting. Let’s be real, if living a healthy and physically active lifestyle was easy, everyone would be doing it. It shouldn’t be all about brown rice, chicken, and broccoli. I believe in creating a balanced lifestyle that is realistic and sustainable. I am dedicated to the work that I do and because of that I am always striving to expand my knowledge in fitness and nutrition.

My goal is to continue my education in Exercise Science to improve my skills as a personal trainer.
