How do you motivate participants?

I like to think that truly, clients motivate themselves. My job as a trainer is to be there to remind them when they would otherwise forget. As to that, I think everyone responds well to positivity and great energy.

Watching my friends who I taught and programed for beat my own PR's. Seeing them develop their passion for fitness and knowing that I helped give them the push they needed to start is an awesome feeling.

Novice clients to experienced athletes looking to get the most from their training

Why did you become a Personal Trainer?

I became a personal trainer because fitness is a passion of mine. Since I began training, fitness has played a major role in my life in that it has not only improved my health, but my discipline, confidence, and overall happiness as well. As a trainer, I get the opportunity to help people receive similar benefits from exercise, and am excited to bring this passion to RecSports.

What is your personal go-to workout?

There are few problems in life a good chest day can't fix.

How would you describe your personal training sessions? What type of training do you like to take your clients through?

Sessions with me vary depending on the client and their goals. I personally love weight training, and incorporate it into many of my programs. One thing that's consistent across the board however, is a great attitude and a constant smile.
