When did you decide that you wanted to be a PT?
I decided to become a personal trainer in 2014 while I was in graduate school becoming a professional classical flutist.
What is your training philosophy?
Train smarter, not harder. It’s key to balance the four pillars of your fitness and wellness: strength, nutrition, mobility, and mindset.
What advice would you give someone just discovering fitness?
Fitness is not a sprint or destination, it’s a lifelong gift that must be managed consistently. Enjoy the process, learn as much as you can, and never take it for granted.
What does your pre/post-workout meal consist of?
For pre-workout, I have a drink with about 250mg of caffeine. For post-workout, I’ll have a protein shake with 2 scoops of protein powder and 8oz of either almond or oat milk, and one pound of sweet potatoes.
First thing you do when you wake up?
I make my morning shake, consisting of almond milk, protein powder, mixed berries, spinach, and almond butter.
