I'm a fitness trainer by profession, but it's more than a profession, it's a way of life. It's a way to seize the day! Fitness does not need to be a choice of healthy tasteless food and unhealthy delicious food. It's a combination of choices of activity, foods, and behaviors that feel good, and are good for you!
This profession has also shown me what life can look like, when you are dealing with chronic pain, obesity, or other health issues and being a father of 3 boys myself, I can not image the heart break they'd feel if something (like a heart attack) happened to me. A world where you're unable to participate in life's moments or extracurricular activities is a sad one indeed, but it doesn't have to be this way! Many of these issues arise from choices we have made over the years, and yet some of them can be reversed by changing our choices. It is completely up to you... and I can help!
As it says above I teach at a local community college to students pursuing their personal training certification. I am also a certified fitness trainer and speed specialist. and began my training career in the United States Marine Corps. After my service I went on to earn an Associates degree from Harrisburg Area Community College, a Bachelors degree from Duquesne University, and a Masters degree of Exercise Science and Health Promotion from the California University of Pennsylvania.
My experience ranges from training high performance Marines, post therapy rehabilitation clients, the clinically obese and everything in between. I have been fortunate to have been a part of many successes. I have assisted clients pass military and para military physical fitness tests, dramatic weight losses (upwards of a 120 pounds), and have worked with those so debilitated by chronic pain their lives seemed only to be riddled with pain and yet after following an exercise and training program were able to engage in normal day to day activities again. Whatever your walk of life you can improve your fitness and health with the right guidance. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK and YOU CAN ONCE AGAIN SEIZE THE DAY and this is the way to do it!
