A Little More About Me
I was just a kid growing up in an oil-refining town in the East San Francisco Bay. My parents instilled in me the importance of being physically fit and active from a very young age. My dad is the ultimate mountain-man, having been born and raised in Alaska when it was still a territory. He shared with me a love for spending time outdoors in the wilderness and paying respect to the unparalleled natural landscapes we enjoy in America. By the time my dad was 14, his father's Multiple Sclerosis consigned him to a wheelchair, and their ability to enjoy the outdoors together was cut short. This inspired him to make sure he showed me and my sister how physical fitness can take you to landscapes you've only dreamed about.
Family-time centered around hiking and backpacking in the High Sierras, body surfing in the Pacific Ocean, skiing Lake Tahoe, swimming the Yuba River, and mountain biking the East Bay Hills and Sierra Nevada Foothills. My mom was a life-long swimmer, and it was her influence that would cement my love of aquatics. As a former member of the Navy Medical Corp stationed in Guam, she loved the ocean and the spirit of the water. She put me in the pool by the time I was one-year old, and drove me to countless practices and swim meets. It was in swimming that I found focus through rhythmic breathing, stroke technique, and cardiovascular & muscular endurance.
While I may not have been the best competitive swimmer, or runner, or cyclist, I knew that by keeping consistent with my practice that it would yield benefits that no one singular competition would ever give me. I knew that I would generate holistic health & wellness for my body, my spirit, and my overall well-being. I will go so far as to say that physical training is what kept (and still keeps me) me going.
No doubt, in the years that ensued and through the in-depth education I received in my time as a fitness professional, I learned that if you train your body to move well, then the rest of the physical equation follows. By training, you will have gratitude for your physicality, your natural environment, and you will live a life that allows you to be the best version of you possible.
Fitness is my passion. It is my goal to help you get to a place where you can experience the best that life has to offer with strength, with agility, and with power. In a world that wants you to sit down and be quiet, I want you to stand up, shout, and join my MOVEment!
If you've got a question, then I have an answer. Don't be shy . . . I'm here for you!
