CSEP-High Performance Certification


Growing up I was always involved in sports having played soccer, badminton, squash, track and field, football, taekwondo, softball, rock climbing, and more. I chose fitness as I wanted to be able to make a difference in people’s lives using exercise; exercise has played a big role in improving my mental health and I would like to use that to help others.


4 years professionally, having trained friends and family 2 years prior.

Training Philosophy:

“I ask not for a lighter load, but for stronger shoulders” -Atlas. What we do in the gym is designed to make the rest of our lives easier, function over form.

Client Success Stories:

One of my clients had a meniscus tear where something as simple as going up and down stairs caused an immense amount of pain. This past summer they played a game of cricket with no knee issues and they haven’t had any knee pain for a long while; all of their blood work has improved and the main change they made was starting to exercise with me.

Advice for Beginners:

Find your why and don’t be worried about being perfect – be worried about being consistent. There will be good days and less than good days, having a strong “why” will help you be consistent on those bad days. Consistency leads to success.

Overcoming Challenges:

Empathy and relativity. Empathy – sometimes you need someone to listen to you – the first step in solving any problem is recognizing that there is a problem, if you understand the problem better then hopefully it will be easier to solve. Relativity – every exercise I give will be catered to your level of difficulty.

Favorite Workout:

Anything that gets me into the flow state, currently it’s dodgeball. I love being immersed in the moment where the brain shuts off and the body moves on its own. Otherwise it is calisthenics and bodyweight exercises because of how humbling the challenge can be.

Personal Fitness Goals:

To stay healthy and consistent! I am also working on my handstands, hangs, and my backflip.


I chronically collect hobbies but currently, my main ones are chess, poi, dodgeball, video games (Elden Ring, and Valorant). I’m learning how to sing, speak Spanish, and play guitar.

Inspirational Figure

Thích Quảng Đức. His resolve and strength to help others resonates with me.

Fun Fact:

This year was 5 years clean of alcohol!
