I began my journey into the fitness industry 9 years ago after going through brain surgery, where I had a bening tumor in my pre frontal lobe. Fitness is a vehicle that allowed me to breakthrough my self imposed limitations. It helped me achieve a mind body connection that heightened my awareness of my physical and mental states. I believe in the synergy between the body and mind. Heal the body and the mind will follow, Heal the mind and the body will follow.
I have been a professional fitness coach for the past 4years. I am a certified trainer under the National Academy of Sports and Medicine. I work with professionals who lack confidence and experience discomfort form unwanted tension that creates a challenge when they attempt to strive for their desired outcomes.
I create an environment that allows them to breakthrough their set mental and physical limitations. So they can experience a life of confidence and freedom.
