Peace and Blessings!
I am a personal trainer, wellness coach and author who has been dedicated to educating people for over 20 years! My specialties are: strength training, stress management, and nutrition. My approach to personal training is to learn as much as I can about your exercise and health history in addition to understanding your fitness goals. Taking you from where you are, to where you want to be involves a solid exercise plan, nutritional advice, and an understanding of what motivates you to succeed.
Several years ago, I was involved in a car accident that totaled my vehicle. My injuries included back strain and a concussion. The road to recovery was long, and I was unable to continue my work as a school teacher for a few months. Furthermore I had to cease my martial arts training until my condition improved. Because I loved to eat lots of takeout food and desserts, this new sedentary lifestyle produced extra body weight and dangerously high cholesterol levels. Facing a health crisis, my doctor suggested cholesterol medication. Determined to find another solution, I partnered with a personal trainer who helped me change my diet and exercise routine so I could lose the extra weight. After losing 20 pounds, my cholesterol returned to normal. Inspired by my own journey, I left my job in public education and decided to inspire others through the world of fitness!
A MISSION TO INSPIRE OTHERS
Before I became a personal trainer, I worked tirelessly as a minister, musician and school teacher. The passion to inspire and motivate people is still at the core of what I do today. In addition to 1 on 1 personal training, I provide nutritional coaching, lead Inspired Life Fitness Camps, and lead wellness workshops throughout the United States. Many of my thoughts about life are also contained in two books I have written: The Weight Is Over and Every Song Has a Story. Both are available on Amazon. Social media is another platform I enjoy using to reach people. So please purchase my books...and don't forget to follow me on social media. Let's stay connected!
