I have been a Personal Trainer since 1998 and am passionate about helping others see the importance of health and the value of fitness. I have a strong dedication to helping people live longer, healthier lives. My true passion in life has always been helping people take an interest in their own health and well-being.

I received my first personal training certification from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) in 1999. In addition, in March of 2010 I received my National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Training Degree. I also hold a Fitness Nutrition Specialist Certification through NASM as well as being CPR Certified through the American Heart Association.

I have trained in various clubs such as Gold’s Gym, LA Fitness and Bodyplex. I began working with a Corporate Wellness Company in 2010 in various roles which included organizing a community-wide health initiative focused on reaching out to the entire area and developing health and fitness related programs available to everyone in the community.

In addition, I worked to develop and implement Corporate Fitness Programs to add to the other health management programs that the company already offered. While I had a great deal of success, the resources available to expand the programs were limited. In October of 2011, I formed the Georgia Fitness Academy to continue my efforts with a focus on fitness and nutrition. I truly love working with individuals to educate them on the importance of proper health and nutrition and the invaluable lifestyle improvements that they can achieve with a little time and effort.

It’s easy to be lazy and complacent. Anything worth having requires effort and your own health is no different. Take responsibility for it and I assure you it will change your life forever.
