NASM CPT, Z Health R-Phase & Essentials of Elite Performance, RKC Instructor

The people who know me best would describe me as patient, empathic, and approachable. 

Strength training has been a passion of mine for the past 12+ years. It is the cornerstone of my mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Ever since high school when I was considering becoming a therapist, I wanted to have a direct impact on improving people's lives.

After receiving support and a gentle push from my wife, I left my long time day job in a high level leadership position to pursue my passion. It was the perfect fit to apply my skills and fulfil my desire to help others. On top of that I wanted a career that's fun! I have been having such a blast helping others succeed, learning new things every day, and sharing my love of lifting.

So why will YOU love classes at FOREST Coaching?

Kettlebells are so much fun!  The ballistic movements that stem from the kettlebell swing provide such a huge "bang for your buck" and can't be replicated with any other implement. Kettlebells are suitable for nearly any training goal and allow for incredible freedom of movement. The classic "big 6" kettlebell moves along with a handful of accessory lifts create an elegant training system that's easily adapted to all experience and fitness levels. 

Join me at the FOREST for Community Kettlebells, 1:1 or Semi-Private Coaching and a boatload of strength and confidence.

"I have worked with several trainers at Forest, and it is clear that they have all trained very hard and deeply understand the movements they ask their clients to complete. The staff are truly experts of their craft."
