Our Personal Coaches are experienced, knowledgeable and motivational. Possessing the highest quality certifications, they consistently enhance their skill set so they can provide you with cutting-edge coaching for optimal results. You collaborate with your Personal Coach to create a program tailored to meet your goals and interests. Members looking to achieve that extra “edge” or those that require more specific, individualized programs will benefit most from personal and semi-private coaching sessions.
My passion is to help others find their true potential and obtain whatever fitness goals they have set. I am committed to helping my clients achieve their goals with specialized workout/nutrition plans, education and motivational coaching. I’m always excited to see my clients succeed, be it with weight loss, running a half-marathon, or simply to get healthier…. I love my job!
After working in the Health & Fitness field for 18 yrs, I continue to thrive on helping others work towards and reach their goals in San Diego. With my experience and knowledge, I hope to motivate, educate & inspire the members here at Point Loma Sports Club.

Fitness has always been a huge part of my life. Growing up as a nationally ranked competitive figure skater, I learned at a young age the importance of living an active lifestyle. My fascination for health and fitness eventually led me to pursue becoming immersed in the fitness industry through training and instructing. Since the age of 16 I have been leading various fitness classes and group exercise formats. My passion is to make exercise fun and accessible to anyone and everyone who wishes to better their health and life. My training specialty lies in balance and coordination using various methods such as yoga, aerial silks, and functional movement.
It brings me great joy to be a part of the wonderful community here at Point Loma Sports Club, and I hope to inspire you to make your health and longevity a priority each and every day!

Years of passion and experience in the world of physical fitness and athleticism naturally led me to love my work as a professional Personal Trainer. Certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and always a continuing student, I combine cutting edge techniques with tried-and-true traditions to help get you strong, fit, flexible and healthy.
I see myself more than just a Personal Trainer, but also as your coach, ally, guide, and friend. What ever your goals—improved fitness, weight loss, injury recovery, training for an event or a sport, improved self-esteem—I am there with humor, determination, knowledge and commitment. I know that whether you’re new to a physical program, returning after a break, or trying to get past a plateau, it is hard and often confusing to do it alone! I encourage you not to suffer, struggle or drive yourself crazy trying to do it all by yourself. Life is short and precious - have fun and get the support you need!

As a D-1 athlete, I experienced what it was like to wake up in the best shape of my life, only to go to bed that night unable to walk, with a surgery booked and 6-12 months of injury rehab on my calendar. That happened three times in my life. The empowering part about those physical low points is realizing that strength literally is your only option. Now my passion is passing along the emotional support, knowledge & practical skills I learned though those experiences and over many years as an athlete & personal trainer. What I’ve found is that although every body is different, we all experience major life obstacles in maintaining our health. What I enjoy about coaching is learning about my clients’ unique circumstances, and helping them apply the optimal dose of strength & conditioning to improve their quality of life. Everybody deserves a unique fitness plan, custom to their lifestyle, and the accountability they need to reach their goals. This puzzle of optimizing each unique human body is what gets me out of bed and excited to train my clients at the crack of dawn!

My love for fitness originated at an early age. I was naturally drawn to the outdoors and sports, enjoying the challenge in stretching my abilities and strengths in track, basketball, and dance. My personal experience taught me that growth and development is possible through dedication, consistency, and picking yourself up to try again.
After college, I was given an excellent opportunity to work side by side with physicians in wellness centers, designing nutrition and exercise protocols for our patients. Through this experience, I realized the joy in working with people to dramatically improve their health and fitness, achieve their ideal weight, and truly change their lives by becoming their own success story!
Working as a Personal Fitness Trainer and Health Coach for over 25 years, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with thousands of individuals in their quest for fitness. I have found it is important to challenge yourself in a variety of ways in the gym to keep it interesting, fun, and produce results. A truly fit person has abilities in all areas of fitness including strength, flexibility, cardio, and implementing lifestyle habits that support optimum health. Overall my philosophy is simple; to create a life of Balance.

My absolute passion is paving the way to a healthy lifestyle through fitness and nutrition. That passion is deeply rooted from competing in sports such as: football, wrestling, collegiate lacrosse, kickboxing and boxing.
Within the past two years I have really embraced the power of neuroscience. It has given me the ability to rapidly heal pain or enhance athletic performance, and unlock my client's full potential within a few sessions.I thoroughly enjoy developing all populations including USA Olympians, NFL, NBA, UFC and Glory Kickboxing athletes, as well as chronic pain, neurological disorder, and weight loss clientele.
My aim is to provide the brain with the most appropriate input to get amazing output. An individual’s lifestyle, injuries, surgeries, etc. will affect these inputs and usually produce poor outputs. With a thorough assessment, we explore and confirm the input and integration areas that need specific focus to reach each individual’s optimal performance. I look forward to unlocking your full potential and achieving goals you never knew you were capable of!
