About this pro

We focus on helping our students Move Better and Get Stronger. We are kettlebell experts but realize the human body is the most important tool we could use and therefore prioritize your body and helping you become better as a human mover. 

We have certifications spanning Bodyweight Strength training (SFB) & Natural Body Movement (MovNat), Sports conditioning (NSPA), Kettlebells (RKC & SFG), Movement assessments and corrections (CK-FMS & FMS), Parkinsons specialization, and general fitness. (ACE-CPT). We take all this knowledge and try to craft workouts that maximize the impact we can have on our students. 

We enjoy the journey. Hopefully the instruction and motivation we bring helps people make progress in their fitness journey and also expands a bit to helping them in their everyday life. Those are the stories that really make it fun to do what we do.

How did you get started teaching?

I realized early that I had an affinity for teaching and helping people learn phsyical skills, and I liked it! I started first working with friends and family memebers and quickly moved into working with all sorts of people. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All types really. I have worked with "normal" kids and adults of all ages for general fitness. I've trained other personal trainers and instrucotrs to learn to teach kettlebell skills themselves. I also worked for about 4 years in a retirement community doing strength and fitness training and classes.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently I had a mid 60's client who we'd been working with for a couple years report her progress in bone density. She had always tested well or her age group, but this last test she tested okay for a 30 year old! The only thing she had changed in her life was the addition of "heavy" weight training with us, and the proof was in the pudding. 

When things epand beyond the gym is where we know that we are doing the best we possibly can at our job.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Do your homeowkr on them, see what other students of there's are saying, and try them out. purchase a small amount of sessions or short term contract so you can experience enough of their teaching to make a solid decision, but not too much do where if it isn't working you are stuck. Also, know what you want form this relationship. If you have solid goals and expectations going in then you'll know if it is working or not.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What am I looking for as a teacher student relationship?

What changes do I want to see in myself?

What am I willing to do to achieve my goals?

How much time, energy, and money do I want to commit?
