To know me as a personal trainer, you should understand that I am, at my core, a teacher. I taught various grades from 1999 to 2011, and even as early as 1996, when I was still in college, I tutored young people from a nearby neighborhood as part of a mentor program.
It was during these years that I learned how to connect and communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds, which served me well when I left the local school system and became involved in coaching CrossFit classes in Ashburn, VA, where I lived until moving to Massachusetts in 2015.
For the first time, I saw that my role as a teacher could literally change a person’s life for the better, which only fueled my passion for working in the fitness industry. As I continued to grow my expertise in the field, I began working towards owning a fitness studio of my own, where I hoped to lead others to a lifetime of fitness.
When I’m not training others, exercising myself, or working to further my education, I like playing with noisy things, like guitars and drums, but enjoy the peace and quiet of books just as much. I’m also learning to enjoy my new home in New England and am especially having fun exploring the nearby beaches and mountains.
Custom Fit Training was created to provide personal training and small-group training to clients of all ages, skill levels, and stages of fitness. And while the training program of each client is unique to that individual’s needs and goals, every client will work to master sound movement mechanics and safe, effective exercise techniques. This attention given to movement and technique fundamentals serves the purpose of empowering clients with the knowledge and confidence needed for a lifetime of fitness.
