With both my Undergraduate and Masters' degrees in fitness and over 20 years experience as a Personal Trainer, I'm excited about the opportunity to share my knowledge via this blog.  Never before have so many people had such access to information as they do today via the internet, and yet people continue to struggle with weight loss, fitness, and living a healthy lifestyle.  As a group, Americans have never been more unhealthy despite having all this information at their disposal.  I'm here to help dispell some myths and help as many people as I can to get on the right track.  No matter your age or physical condition, it's never too late to make a positive impact on your health and enrich every area of your life!

I have trained a diverse group of clients.  For some clients, fitness enhances health and everyday life.  For others, it’s a matter of life and death.  Whether training athletes or seniors, stay-at-home moms or busy executives, or government and military personnel or police officers, my beliefs are the same.  Whatever clients' fitness levels or goals may be, my job is to help them achieve and maintain better, healthier lifestyles so they can be successful in all aspects of life. 

As an educator, my job is to teach people how to utilize their surrounding environment to their benefit and get a great workout wherever they are.  Lack of traditional weights or a full-scale gym (or a Personal Trainer, for that matter) is not an excuse to avoid working out.  I don’t believe in excuses.  None of us (including me) can change things for the better without first being honest and acknowledging where we are so we'll know what is required to get to where we want to be.  Life is not forgiving, particularly to those trying to justify inaction.  Life is multi-dimensional, and that is how we need to approach it.  This is the core of my philosophy.  Do something new, something good for yourself, and you will be rewarded on many levels. 

Thank you for reading my inaugural blog!  I look forward to sharing my ideas, answering questions you may have, and hearing your feedback.
