WHY YOU LOVE BEING A PERSONAL TRAINER: I love helping people reach their goals, but even more so I love watching them discover who they can be, and who they were meant to be. Allowing them to discover there is life after injury, after our body’s change, that we can pick up and enter the gym at any phase in life. I want to assist people as they discover themselves. Together we can navigate even the toughest of storms. I became a personal trainer after a sports injury, after being told no, being told I can’t. I’m here to help you know you can, to help you break the barriers, and the molds. From power lifting, to yoga, you can and you will.
WHY YOU TRAIN AT TROPHY: All the toys of course! But, in all seriousness, from layout to the people, it’s simply the best. It’s a space where anyone is welcomed and can train in a safe space. The energy is bar none and simply can’t be beat.
