When I was 16, I was involved in a car accident with a drunk driver which left me with a fractured spine. Just two years later, a second accident left me with a left shoulder injury and chronic back pain. I attended countless appointments with physical therapists and did months of chiropractic and massage work, only to be told that I would have to learn to live with my chronic pain. My work capacity, social life, and personal relationships all suffered. I became depressed, sedentary, and began to withdraw from others. To make matters worse, the rest of my body became stiff and weak, and I finally began to see a connection between my inactive lifestyle and well-being. I decided it was time to get moving.
From the very first time I picked up a set of weights, I recognized that there was something special about the process. After only a few months of regular resistance training and decent meal planning, my chronic pain had virtually disappeared. What I was left with was a healthier body, mind, and mentality with which I have chosen to use to help others find their driving force for a healthier lifestyle. I earned my personal training certification in 2013 while studying pre-med at the University of Minnesota and have been helping individuals reach their fitness goals ever since.
Getting you results isn't complicated. We're going back to the basics of eating real food, staying accountable, and working hard in the gym. As we push through barriers, you'll also learn how to stay dedicated to the process outside of the gym so that we continue to facilitate the incredible results you expect from an exceptional trainer.
I earned my personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise and in 2013 began training at a private fitness studio doing 1-1 training, 2-1 training, and boot camp classes. While training and studying for graduate school, I decided it was time to train on my own and began running my own gig out of Full Motion Fitness in Minnetonka. I haven't looked back since.
