I started an active lifestyle as early as t-ball and haven’t stopped since. I have my Dad to thank for that. I grew up playing many sports such as baseball, football, wrestling and basketball. I also picked up many hobbies such as bmx, rollerblading, skateboarding and snowboarding. A big current hobby of mine is seeing the world while attending shows, concerts and festivals to get down and boogie!
One day I was thinking about what I wanted to do with my life and it just kind of came to me. I asked myself what am I good at and what do I enjoy. The answers were getting results and helping others. So here I am.
I earned my first certification on October 14th 2005 as an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer. Additional certifications include:
- NASM Certified Personal Trainer
- NASM Cardio Respiratory Specialist
- NASM Sports Performance Specialist
- NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist
- TRX Suspension Training Certificate of Completion
As a certified fitness trainer in the industry for over 10 years and owner of Phyxit Fitness, I bring to HRC my personal experience as a motivational fitness coach and competitive bodybuilder. I believe motivation is what gets you started and good fitness habits will continue to keep you training at any age.
My philosophy is, “hard work and dedication”. As a diabetic, I too have had to overcome life’s challenges and decided to take control over my diabetes to strengthen my inner athleticism. The result of this journey over the years has ensured that I am committed to working closely with my clients who include beginners as well as athletes with specific advanced training needs in achieving good personal health, and to embrace the power of fitness.
Workout group sessions are creative, intense and are goal-oriented toward achieving rewarding results.

Since childhood, I had struggled with obesity. I had a strong passion for medicine and helping others, but knew I couldn’t help anyone as a doctor if I didn’t first help myself. During my early 20s my excess weight began affecting daily life. I woke up with tingling and numb feet and I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I knew something had to be done. During medical school, I changed my habits, and began eating right and exercising. Since then I have lost over 80 pounds and fitness has become my passion. I hope to help others using my medical knowledge, personal training and personal experience to help prevent disease with good eating and an active lifestyle.
