Personal Training Lakeview


I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a major in Kinesiology. I am a NASM certified personal trainer. My interest in fitness started with running when I was in elementary school and this interest increased as I was introduced to strength training during my college career. I truly believe that exercise is medicine. I believe in the importance of performing physical activity in order to help prevent, as well as help with treatment of certain medical conditions. I really enjoy strength training, but I also like to go on long hikes and walks. As a lakeview personal trainer, I look forward to helping individuals stay consistent and motivated with their fitness goals regardless of their level of expertise.
