My clients have had some amazing accomplishments (just to name a few): Improving Physical Fitness Test Scores, Triathlons, Feeling Energized for Grandchildren, Reversing Osteoporosis, Recovering From Hip Replacement, Improving Sleep, Recovering From Injury/Surgery, Reducing the Amount of Medications, Century Rides, Obstacle Course Racing...

My long story:
It was at my last duty station when I was in the gym helping some soldiers with resistance training to improve their scores on their Army Physical Fitness Test, that I realized how much I enjoyed teaching. I love introducing new challenges to the mind and body. After my 7-year career in the Army, I finished up a degree in Exercise & Sport Science at the University of Utah. I was able to combine my two joys of teaching and anatomy by being a teaching assistant in the Anatomy Lab. My passion continued with 2 years of teaching Water Aerobics, Indoor Cycling, and Resistance Training Classes. I moved to the Bay Area in 2009 where I continue sharing my passion for teaching Leading Hikes/Trail Runs, Personal Training, Small Group Training, Coaching Track Workouts, and TRX Instruction.
Small Group Training and Personal Training can build a bond similar to the camaraderie between soldiers. It is a relationship built by hard work and working towards a common purpose.
