Biography

 First and foremost, thank you so much for considering Volition Fitness as your personal training provider. Fitness has always been a passion of mine, and my goal is to share my knowledge with you and help you attain your best every training day. I have achieved many major certifications and educational goals, including obtaining multiple exercise science relevant degrees and the highly-regarded CSCS certification from the NSCA. In 2016, I earned my pro-card for the men’s physique division of the NGA, a natural bodybuilding organization. I constantly adapt to new research and expanded exercise and programming techniques in order to provide a wide range of services and knowledge to my clients. My goal is not to give you a workout, but provide a training experience that eventually results in a self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle. On top of my education, I pride myself on over 15 years of experience under the bar; here, lessons are learned that are never written in any textbooks.

I take a very dynamic, systematic approach to program design for my clients. No one size fits all workouts, no generic methods, no stagnation. The human body will only adapt unless it is taxed to a point that it is forced to somehow compensate for the stresses it is put through. In simpler words, work a little harder or smarter every day and results will come. I believe there is a solution to every goal in fitness, and the only thing getting in the way is motivation. How hard are you willing to work? How much are you willing to give up? And most importantly, how great will you feel when you get what you’ve always wanted through hard work and sheer force of will? I love motivating clients to find out what their goals truly are, and convincing them to seize the opportunity at hand and succeed!

Biography

I believe that lasting success in fitness and life boils down to three things: you have to want it, you have to like it, and you have to work for it – all of them are interrelated. You can’t achieve it if you don’t work for it, but it won’t feel like work if you like it. If you don’t want it, you won’t be motivated to work for it. And if you want it enough, you are bound to like it, at least a little. My goal it to help you to discover the foundation for all of these. If I can help you discover why you want it, you will be more successful. If I can help you like it, the more you are going to want to do it. And I will push you to work harder than you ever thought you could.

I believe that continually learning and expanding my knowledge base will help me to help you. Constant research and education are a huge part of my life, and I love being able to pass this along to my clients. The more information you have, the smarter you can work. If you want to become stronger, more muscular, leaner, or control pain, improve your eating habits or establish a sound exercise program, I will do whatever I can to guide you to your goals. I want you the have as much information as you want and need to become successful and self-efficient. A sound, scientific background combined with mental and emotional support can help you to achieve your goals, and your dreams. I am here to do both.

Chances are, is some form or another, I have been where you are. And I have succeeded. I have worked towards my goals and achieved them. To do so, I have wanted it, I have worked hard for it, and I have liked it. This career is one of those goals, one of those dreams. To get to work alongside you, to help you achieve your goals, and dreams, everyday, is amazing. Thank you for giving me to opportunity to do so.
