Ever since I could walk, I have always found a way to revolve my life around fitness and sports. In High School I was a 4 season athlete, but my focus was primarily on track and field. At the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, I participated on the Track and Field Team as a 200m and under sprinter. While track and field fueled most of my athletic career, I was also passionate about health and fitness. Through my determination to enhance my skills as a runner, I began training and working out on a daily basis.
After graduation I moved to the Chicago-land Area and started working with athletes of all ages in a variety of sports. As an experienced athlete, I understand the importance of training, which is why I decided to dedicate my time to helping others achieve their fitness goals. I have worked with every different kind of client, including children as young as 8 with developmental disabilities up to professional athletes. Although I specialize in athletic conditioning, I’m knowledgeable in my experience to help our members accomplish any fitness objectives they may have. As a trainer, my goal is to never treat my members as one of the same, but to individualize each person’s workout so that they can gain the most from their fitness experience.
Cross Kicks Fitness is unlike an other gym I’ve worked at; what sets it apart is that the moment I open the club to the end of my shift, I’m training clients. Instead of helping a handful of clients, like most jobs, I get to personally help upwards of 50 people on a daily basis!
