Getting started on your fitness goals is the toughest part! As the Personal Training Director at X Shadyside it is my job to help you do just that. I conduct all initial fitness consultations.
We will discuss your goals and health history, I’ll put you through a customized personal training session to show you the quality of workout you get with personal training, and then we will discuss our training packages. Once we have a plan you are comfortable committing to, I will set you up with a trainer based on your fitness goals and availability.
Since I was 5 years old I’ve always been involved in sports. In high school I was a member of the soccer, cross country, and track teams. Growing up, I was always the skinny kid and was really intimidated by the weight room. Overcoming that fear took some time, but during my sophomore year of college lifting weights became a true passion of mine.
For five years I’ve trained individuals of all ages and ability levels ranging from division I athletes to senior citizens in their 70’s and 80’s with multiple chronic disease just looking to get through daily life with more ease. Functional training using dumbbells, kettlebells, body weight exercises, medicine balls, resistance bands, and much more has always been my approach to developing safe and effective training programs for individuals of all ability levels with multiple fitness goals.
Whether your objective is weight loss, muscle building, stamina, sports performance, overall strength, or you’re recovering from an injury, the staff and I at X Shadyside are here to make your fitness journey a fun and successful one!
