WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A PERSONAL TRAINER?

Two main factors that inspired me to become a personal trainer. The first was my love for sport and fitness and how great it makes a person feel.  The second factor was that heart disease ran in my family and I wanted to help other people fight through that battle.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT TRAINING AT CLM:

I love training at CLM, because of the members.  They definitely become an intricate part of the gym and are always working hard to better their fitness.  When I am having a moment where I lack motivation to work out, I can always look across the gym and find someone working hard, who will motivate me to get after it!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CLIENT SUCCESS STORY:

My most successful client was a woman who came to me with no real direction and no idea where to begin with exercise, but she knew she needed to lose weight and get healthier.  Throughout her journey she lost 100 lbs. and was able to decrease the amount of medication she needed to take.  With her dedication to her fitness, she was able to run a marathon.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO LEARN ABOUT YOU:

Although I have trained many different clients in my numerous years, I have received the most satisfaction when I’ve worked with special needs clients. For example, I have worked with paraplegics, the rehabilitation of injured, and children with Autism.  I have a wife and twin teenagers, a Siberian cat and a Mini Golden Doodle.  I coach my son’s travel soccer team.
