As a native Southern Californian, I grew up in the city of Long Beach. At the very young age of 11, I found my love and passion for nutrition. As I learned about my family history through the stories my mother would share, I became aware of the self-inflicted poor health conditions and premature death my family experienced. Saddened by this fact, and how it adversely affected my family, I found myself filled with both a sorrow and a fire I hadn't experienced before. Sadness from the missed opportunity to meet my relatives whose experiences I could have drawn wisdom from, and a fire to never fall into the same cycle of living.
As time passed, I found my next passion in movement. In my teens I discovered that I LOVE MOVEMENT! This coupled with my fascination of the human body and its’ resilient transformative nature, triggered my desire to master the many facets of health and fitness. In 2007 my life took another turn and I hit the lowest place emotionally. It was at this point that I realized that there was someone who had been there all along...someone who I soon discovered was the author and source of the very passions I had. The one who had everything I had so deeply needed.... My Heavenly Creator. Now, with the true Love and acceptance of God, I had hope. I now had a vision for my future and an entirely new perspective of people and their true value. Today with over a 20 of experience as a Master Trainer, and knowledge obtained from four national certifications in exercise and nutrition, I realize there is no better time than the present to help improve the ailments that are affecting our nation's population. My heart's desire is to (through fitness) help others see themselves through the right lens..... The way God sees them.
Nationally certified with 20 years of success and experience, it is a pleasure to help you obtain your personal pathway to optimal health. Through consistent assessing and evaluation, we will work with you to keep you on track and motivated to reach your goals.
We understand that adapting to new fitness habits can be a challenge. But I have learned that a healthy life is not obtained by putting a girdle on your actions but by changing your perspective about the direction you need to go. But with loving support, honest self-assessment and a commitment to identify and replace harmful roots, a healthy life is sure to bloom!
Personal training is not about being pushed harder. PT should educate and motivate one to the point of wanting to respect and properly care for one's total being so that the outcome is a healthy life. The goal is not so much about changing physical appearances as much as it is about helping others to view themselves, food, and exercise differently.
