I am a Southern California native and lover of the beach and mountains. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a B.S. in Kinesiology and I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, a Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Nutritionist. My passion for sports and fitness keeps growing and my knowledge keeps expanding. Growing up I wasn't too confident in myself because from ages 7-11 I was a chubby kid and even though when I hit puberty I lost the weight, I still had my self image as a chubby kid. My first interest in fitness came because I wanted to be thin, but I soon realized that no matter how thin I was, it was never enough for me; I was never happy with the way I looked. But then I developed this interest in lifting weights, in running competitively, in doing pull-ups and push ups, in rock climbing, and in all sorts of crazy physical feats. My body began to change and although it's not as thin as I wanted to be, I don't care and I love it because it has transformed strongly and beautifully and it has allowed me to things I never thought I could. Today I continue to push myself in new ways be it lifting a bigger weight, running a Spartan race, trying a new activity; and I continue to learn how to move better, perform better, and be healthier and happier. I want to be the one to guide you to be the best version of yourself through improving your fitness and other lifestyle changes. Are you ready to become your best self? Let me help you unleash the strength inside of you!
