I have been a personal fitness trainer for the past decade. I was a jack of many trades before, but after healing from a life-threatening injury, I was inspired to assist others in the same way that I helped myself. The injury caused serious brain damage. I could no longer walk, talk, or function on any normal level. In fact, the physicians questioned if I would ever walk or effectively process thought patterns again.
I had to relearn everything. Mentally, I was child-like and had the capacity of a 6 to 8 year old, but, physically, I was in the body of a 30-year old. I felt like Tom Hanks in ‘BIG’. It was a long, hard road, but we always learn the most when we are faced with hardship. I gained so much insight, and learned to appreciate what most of us take for granted—the ability to just live and to purely survive. The saying, ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone’ is very true.
The rehabilitation process was grueling and incredibly humbling, but I pushed my body and mind, attaining the unthinkable. In total, I was in the hospital for three months, and my body weight dropped from 230 pounds to 185 pounds. When I was released, I started going to the gym twice a day just to strengthen my basic muscles. Before you know it, I was back at 230 pounds, but a better me, topping the charts at 230 pounds with lean muscle mass.
I refer to myself as an example of how anyone can overcome their challenges. Since then, I have devoted my life to health and fitness.
Ever since I was a young teen I have always been drawn to fitness. I remember playing my mom’s Jane Fonda workout records and doing the exercises in our basement. Since then I have been involved in the ever-changing world of fitness.
I want to help people discover their fitness potential, change their attitudes towards exercise through positive and manageable experiences.
