WHY YOU LOVE BEING A PERSONAL TRAINER: I became a fitness professional because it allowed me to pursue the study of human movement, and then develop a deep understanding as to how the proper application of those combined sciences can elicit optimal results through proper prescription & development of exercise. 
WHY YOU TRAIN AT TROPHY: Trophy Fitness has a sense of community that I feel is essential for fostering lasting relationships amongst both its staff and members. That’s the kind of energy I’m proud to be a part of!
