Personal Training Background
Health & fitness has been a constant staple in my life. Some of my best childhood memories consist of working out with my mom. Whether that meant going to the gym, rollerblading around the block or wake boarding behind the boat; we were a very active family.
My fitness career began after my honorable discharge from the Navy. I trained Navy, Marine & Seal Team personnel on Naval Air Station North Island. Upon relocating from San Diego back to my home state of Utah, I had the opportunity to assist members of Gold's Gym. During this time I earned certifications in Exercise Therapy, Youth/Senior Fitness, Pregnancy Fitness & Strength & Conditioning.
After two years with my amazing family at Gold's Gym, it was time to say goodbye.
I made the decision to enhance my education, experience & skill set at Lifetime Fitness. Life Time offers much more comprehensive testing for members including lab work (blood samples), stress/cortisol testing, nutrient deficiency testing, pharmaceutical grade supplements, metabolic training, and food sensitivity testing.
I furthered my education by receiving certifications in Behavioral Change, Sports Performance Enhancement, and Corrective Exercise. I learned how to look into the physiological changes which take place within the body to yield faster and more sustainable results for my clientele. The knowledge from National Academy of Sports Science combined with hands-on training with collegiate co-workers at Lifetime contribute to the success of my training and nutritional Programming today.
In 2017, I was in a horrific accident that resulted in burst fractures of my cervical spine which also caused spinal cord injury. A team of highly qualified orthopedic & neurosurgeons broke the news I most likely would never walk again since the required surgery was extremely high risk. However, I ended up walking out of the hospital five days later with a surgical halo. I felt a giant loss of identity when I could no longer exercise or train clients. But instead of letting my circumstances define me, I made one of the best decisions of my life & launched an online Personal Training and Nutrition Consulting company, LIFTED.
Lifted is more than a business to me, it literally saved me. Making a full recovery from my injury & having the ability to help others obtain their fitness & nutrition goals has been an absolute blessing.
