Living “bodyrite” has become a common household phrase in the BodyRite community. My clients know that I am all about lifestyle and “walking the code” as I call it. I spend the majority of my speak time during training sessions with clients talking about nutrition, metabolism and wellness…for the long haul.

Everything that we ingest has a direct cause and effect.
My personal training business known as BodyRite Training is centered around two activities: eating and lifting.
