I’m a Florida Southern College graduate cum laude in Elementary Studies. I have always been passionate about health and wellness. I enjoy all things active and high intensity but can also take it down and enjoy a slower pace. I’m certified in Spinning, Group Aerobics, Water Aerobics, Silver Sneakers, Functional Aging Specialist, YSI Swim Instructor and NASM Personal Trainer. My fitness journey started in my youth. Being the youngest of four older brothers that beat me in everything, I was determined to eventually be better. In high school, I attended a vocational program called Sports Medicine and Fitness Training. In that course we were taught the basic fundamentals of the human movement system as well has some athletic training principles. I played sports throughout high school (basketball, softball and soccer). In college I played one preseason of soccer until I had to work to pay my bills. The job was in radio as a disc jockey so it was a cool switch off. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering to coach youth soccer, local girls running group, playing on an adult recreational soccer league, the beach and helping my children excel in their endeavors. I’m excited to be here in Hampstead N.C. and be a trainer here at Coastal Fitness Center. Bring me a challenge and I’ll happily give it all I’ve got!
