Former D3 college football and tennis player, recently retired MMA fighter at 3-2(muay thai and kickboxing specialization), former ISSA certified personal trainer for three years at Powerhouse Gym in Columbus, Ohio.
Fitness expertise of over 20 years.
My personal expertise is in footwork and athleticism, which transfer into all sports. I use cones, resistance bands, agility ladders and have mitts and pads for those who want boxing, kickboxing work.
I love watching people who WANT to get better, get better because they put in the extra time and work.
I love to teach skills, mainly because body mechanics aren't taught, and that's the one thing most athletes need; an understanding of how their own body works.
