Q & A
Q: Why did you become a personal trainer?
A: I became a personal trainer in order to help people reach their goals and to become the best versions of themselves.
Q: What has been one of your favorite client experiences?
A: One of my clients told me that she hadn’t been able to go up stairs comfortably in years but after working with me for a few months, she was able to walk upstairs in a normal manner and credited me for making that possible. While the client deserves a bulk of the credit, I was happy that I played a part in her progress.
Q: What is your proudest physical achievement?
A: In 2006, I was diagnosed with extremely high blood pressure as a result of being overweight, sedentary, and not eating nutritiously. In the 14 years since I’ve adopted a healthier lifestyle focused on fitness and nutrition, I have lost fat, built muscle, and gotten my blood pressure in control. This is my proudest physical achievement.
Q: Why do you love Orange Shoe?
A: I love Orange Shoes team-based approach to training but most importantly I love the clients that I have the opportunity to work with!
