My whole life I have been surrounded by fitness in one form or another. In my earlier years I rode horses, was an archer, hiker, surfer, and fencer. Growing into an adolescent my direction changed and I took up cross country running and Tae Kwon Do as a passionate outlet for the abundant physical energy I have. As an adult I moved onto running marathons, ultra marathons, century riding, weightlifting, and both Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga. I have had the honor of sharing these experiences with both fellow athletes and individuals that seek to better themselves while expanding their own understanding of the world of fitness and health.
I feel it also necessary to share a personal experience that contributes to my philosophy with personal training. During a marathon I tore my hamstring almost to the point where I needed surgery. It took one full year of physical therapy and rehab to go back to running and in that time I went from being physically fit to obese; I had gained over 70lbs of body fat. Looking in the mirror one day I saw who yearned to be released and embrace life. It only took a short time before I shed the fears and personal limitations that were holding me back. Soon I was back to my athletic activities and lifestyle.
