GROUP EXERCISE TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
MY TEACHING INSPIRATION:
After suffering a minor heart attack at the age of 26, he decided that he needed to change his lifestyle of eating fast food every day and spending his weekends on the sofa. Carl began his journey to a healthier life at the age of 28 when he lost almost 140 pounds in about a year. He was determined to lose the weight without any surgical procedures or miracle diet pills. He focused on exercising seven days a week and ate a strict diet. Carl began exploring other means of exercise including weight training and indoor cycling. His passion for exercise began to be part of his everyday routine, so he decided to make it a career.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT TEACHING AT LMHF:
“I love teaching at La Maison. I love the people. I love the family that the gym has created. That is very important to me. I feel like I am home when I am there.”
