Having grown up in an athletic household I tried a ton of sports at a young age and was attracted to Soccer the most. Using my athletic background I thought wanted a career training professional athletes. However I’ve grown to realize there are more people in this world who could benefit from my knowledge of developing movement quality and also increasing their performance.
A few things I value in regards to fitness..1) “More is not better, better is better”- Adding weight to your bar doesn’t mean much if the quality of the movement is poor. 2) Mamba Mentality- In order to be the best you must love the process in achieving the goal you’re striving for. Seeking to be a pro-level fitness Coach for all populations (kids, young adults, seniors, etc) but also able to coach young athletes
