Even those who do not feel comfortable working out inside a gym can still get a quality workout at home with a personal trainer!”

Main Goal as a Trainer: My main goal is to make sure my clients not only reach and surpass their goals, but also to have fun doing it. I want every client to understand that a very large part of training is mental. If you are mentally strong and truly believe in yourself, the sky is the limit!
Niche as a Trainer: My niche as a trainer is that I am very friendly and I'm very passionate about training. Having strong communication skills will not only make the workouts more fun, but it will also help build trust. I am so passionate about this because I love training! After working with me, you will not only have perfect form, but you will also reach your goals faster than with any other trainer!
Personal Goals: When it comes to fitness, my ultimate goal would be to become a strength coach for a collegiate football team! I'm a huge Ohio State fan (O-H), so the dream would be to become their head strength coach!
Education: BA in Communications from Hanover College and NCSF Certified Personal Trainer
