I have been training people of all ages since 2012 and have a huge passion to help others reach their potential physically, mentally and spiritually. While coaching groups, personal training and virtual online coaching I have learned that coaching people is much more than teaching them how to exercise. My coaching is behavioral based because if we adapt good behaviors then physical performance, mental health and personal growth become byproducts.
After graduating from KSU in 2014, I worked with a company called Iron Tribe Fitness. While at Iron Tribe I developed a distinct ability to make an individual impact on many people at once. The relationships that were gained through this were unparalleled as I not only got to know many of the athletes by their physical abilities, but also as the people they were/growing to become. I knew what drove each of them individually, allowing me to help them achieve their goals faster.
The moment I realized I cannot control other people and I can only control the things I can control was the moment I became a better coach, person and mentor. Understanding other people have mishaps and they cannot live perfectly helps me to coach them and help them get past obstacles as they pop up. Living and thriving through adversity and persevering when odds stack against you are qualities that are stronger then an circumstance. Not allowing things to influence your mood or change the way you treat others around you is the key to a happy and healthy life!
Motivation & Passion
My purpose for coaching is to influence and help people discover and deepen their relationship with themselves and who they want to be physical, mentally and spiritually. This could be much more than they think. Being fit in all aspects of life and loving the person you see in the mirror every day while rooting yourself in something greater than yourself will help you achieve more than you ever expected.
