How many years have you been a personal trainer?

12 years

How many years have you been training for VIDA Fitness?

For 7 to 7-and-a-half years, pretty right since we first opened!

What all do you do here at VIDA?

I mainly train clients one-on-one, but I also teach a conditioning class three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Conditioning is a mix of cardio combinations, calisthenics, and plyometrics. I use interval training to combine a series of high intensity spurts to increase power with lower intensity active exercises to continue burning calories and improve cardiovascular endurance.

I also unofficially lead a run group. It’s a group of us that heads out to run a variety of terrain from incline to stairs, it’s just a nice way to break up the gym routine by getting outside.

What made you become a trainer?

I’ve always been athletic and involved in sports growing up, and my educational background is in athletic training from George Mason University, so it was a natural progression of doing what you love each day.

Who are your ideal types of clients?

I love training athletic types like runners or tri-athletes because I can identify with their goals and the milestones they’re trying to hit. Anyone who enjoys endurance-based exercises is someone I know I’ll mesh with when I train them.

What’s something you want your clients to feel after working with you?

I want them to feel accomplished.

What’s one of your biggest fitness accomplishments to date?

I’ve done a marathon every year for the past 3 to 4 years.

What’s the best nutritional tip you can offer up?

Hydrate! It’s so, extremely important, and people know it, but they still don’t hydrate enough.

Fun fact about you:

My picture was just (unknowingly to me) featured in the latest issue of SHAPE Magazine. My client brought the magazine in for me to see, and there I am in a post-race photo, it was unexpected, but kind of cool!
