Meet your trainer...
My mission as a personal trainer is to inspire others to choose life-long learning, fitness, and personal reinvention as a way of life. In meeting this mission I must be the best example I can be as a person, as an athlete, and as a personal trainer. I must do what I expect others to do. I must respect the efforts of others as they work to reinvent themselves and I must always put my clients’ welfare first.
