If you would have told me out of high school I would be a personal trainer, I would have made sure to point out how terrible of a fortune teller you were! You don't leave high school 250 pounds, pre-diabetic and on your way to college for Computer Programming to ever plan to get near the fitness industry.

But it's exactly for those reasons that I am a personal trainer. My health education was limited, I didn't understand calories let alone carbs, proteins and fats. I had no idea how exercise interacted with weight loss. One day I wanted to change, so I started devouring all the information I could. I learned that I wasn't doomed to be overweight and unhappy with myself my entire life. I started running and weightlifting and transformed myself into exactly who I wanted to be. Couple that with a love of helping people and passion for learning, and I plan to show everyone in the Puget Sound area that I am the premier trainer for strength training and weight loss.
