I believe that maintaining a healthy & functional body consists of a holistic mindset, movement, nutrition, exercise, mindset & lifestyle all play a factor whether you are trying to improve your physical performance, body composition, or simply live a healthy lifestyle.
When not working I love participating in a multitude of movement & physical activity. Weight training, yoga, martial arts, running, cycling, walking, hiking. I also love learning, I love listening to podcasts & books & in a constant pursuit of self improvement both physically and mentally.
What is your favorite kind of workout?
Honestly, I have learned to love all forms of movement and love to continue to branch out in as many types as I can. I have a background in bodybuilding, powerlifting, olympic lifting, gymnastics strength training, yoga, bodyweight training, running, and biking. I am a major advocate of natural human movement. The body thrives on variety.
What is your main focus?
My main focus is to help individuals through lifestyle coaching, finding & creating healthy and sustainable habits to help you reach your goals whether it include: intermittent fasting, fasting, keto, low carb, muscle building
How did you get interested in health?
I grew up overweight and ever since my teen years I began strength training and have continued to evolve in my health & fitness interests since then, learning that the knowledge and application of habits & lifestyle can completely change your life & outcome.
What was one of the biggest health changes you’ve made?
Intermittent fasting is something that I have been doing for almost a decade that has consistently helped me control my weight, fat loss & body composition. I am naturally a big eater. I like to sit down and have a nice meal so I find it beneficial for controlling hunger and overall caloric consumption while still enjoying bigger meals.
What do you think most people should do differently to be more healthy?
Wal & move more in all various ways. People think it's just diet and exercise and that is such a small part of your life. What are your habits outside of the gym? Moving, walking, being on your feet and your total steps for the day I would argue is more important for longevity than how many hours you spend in a gym.
What are some books you recommend?
4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris, The One Thing by Gary Keller, Outliers by Malcom Gladwell
