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 accident caused a serious brain injury. 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.

“Its not about perfect. It’s about effort.
When you bring that effort every single day,
that’s when transformation happens.
That’s when change occurs”

My journey to a healthy balance of fitness In my life began in 2013.

After attending classes for a year, my instructor encouraged me to take a training, and I became a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor.
I learned that creating a class where people felt empowered to further their own fitness journey’s was something that brought me joy.
While instructing Zumba Fitness classes, I met Tag and was introduced to TNT Fitness.

TNT taught me that I am stronger than I ever thought I could be.

It’s a surreal feeling to be a trainer with TNT, getting to pay forward the growth I received by helping others to
become the best versions of themselves, and to show them that they are stronger than they ever thought they could be too.

I have been a member of TNT Fitness since May 2019; my journey here began with the Fitness Challenge. I have been an athlete since I was old enough to talk, I was a competitive speed swimmer for 12 years, I have played Basketball, Volleyball, Baseball, Track & Field and Martial Arts. Sports were my life and kept me fit, after graduating High School all of that fell away. Working full-time, starting a family, years passed and without sports in my life, I became an unhealthy version of myself. I struggled for years with my weight and trying to figure out how to take care of myself without sports. Well, long story short I fell in love with the gym and fitness! Taking care of ourselves is one of the most important things we can do, not only for ourselves but for the ones we love. After meeting Tag, his love for fitness, his enthusiasm is contagious! Becoming a part of the TNT Family gave me that last push I needed to become a Certified Personal Trainer and Exercise Instructor. I love being here and I can’t wait to help you all fall in love with fitness. Surround yourself with those that bring out the best in you and help you to become the best version of yourself and amazing things can happen!

We’ve got this, lets become the best versions of ourselves together!
