Q: Why did you become a personal trainer?
A: I became a personal trainer to help guide others in their journey to overall health and fitness.

A: One of my favorite client experiences was when I was able to help a client get off their pain medication they had been on for years solely through the implementation of a regular exercise program.

Q: What is your proudest physical achievement?
A: My proudest physical achievement would have to be when I snatched 250lbs for the first time.

Q: Why do you love Orange Shoe?
