      Growing up I was always involved in something active, and tried out almost every sport, but eventually I played basketball and soccer in high school. I actually started weightlifting because it was a requirement to play a varsity sport at my high school, but ended up really enjoying it once I got started. Fitness is something that I love because it is so beneficial in our lives but is also fun! Outside of sports and fitness, one of my favorite things to do is walk my dogs!

      Training Philosophy:
      Day by day. You can’t reach your goals overnight, but every day is a chance to get a little bit closer!

      One of my core values is to promote a healthy lifestyle, so I became a personal trainer because I felt that was the best way to influence others and live out that value. I am a very outgoing person, and I enjoy meeting and talking with new people. Personal fitness is my greatest passions, but I also enjoy reading, painting, music, and learning new things. I also work part time at Shades Mountain Baptist Church.

      Training Philosophy:
      I can train for all goals, but I have a lot of personal and group experience in muscle building workouts.

      I have lived in Birmingham since I was four years old. I tried various sports growing up, and I was always involved in something athletic. I played volleyball in high school, and we would always have young trainers lead us through a workout that helped to improve our athletic ability. This was the start of my passion for health and fitness. My goal is to become a Physical Therapist one day because I enjoy helping people reach their goals. Personally, I love to run and lift weights. I enjoy teaching the F45 classes we offer! Outside of fitness, I am a book fanatic. You can catch me at the beach with at least 10 books so I have options based on my mood.

      Training Philosophy:
      Fitness is one thing we have control over to promote good physical and mental health.

      I am currently a senior here at UAB and once I graduate I plan on attending medical school. I have always been quite active as I played soccer throughout my childhood and into high school. However, I only started strength training my freshman year of college. I have been lucky enough to recognize the positive impact that training has had on me both physically and mentally.

      Noticing the impact that concurrent training had on me, I signed up for a personal training class. I signed up mainly to ensure that I was training in an efficient and safe manner, but I quickly realized how important this information could to be others. I started training with my friends and with their feedback and results, I decided to apply my knowledge to a larger group.

      Training Philosophy:
      My style is a mixture between weight lifting and cardiovascular training.

      I was a former couch potato and candy eating machine, which led to T2 Diabetes. My weight was at its highest, had no endurance, and no plan. Once I made the decision to change, I got involved in many types of exercises. The people helping me “get a grip,” transformed my life and health. Without their support, I am not sure I would have been able to do it alone. I decided then to help others achieve the same and lead them on a path to exercise success. I have maintained weight loss of 50 lbs for 3+ years and A1C is now controlled. I compete in 5k, 10k, half marathons and triathlons. I enjoy leading individual and group training for general fitness, running, and challenge events.

      Training Philosophy:
      My objective is helping people learn to enjoy exercise and making it a part of a lifestyle choice. Training is based on Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for physical activity. Program includes building a strong aerobic base and muscle-strengthening. This approach is effective with weight control, reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, improving energy levels and mental health.

      My view of fitness encompasses all aspects of health including mental fitness, emotional fitness, spiritual fitness, and, of course, physical fitness. I believe that if one is left out, the rest are sure to struggle, so I try to work with my clients, and myself, holistically.

      I got into personal training because I have always enjoyed teaching people how to perform exercises, so I decided to make a career out of it. I get a deep sense of satisfaction from helping people achieve their fitness goals. I personally enjoy powerlifting and being a part of the UAB community. I am a big fan of UAB football. Outside of fitness, I enjoy retro gaming, good books, and Golden Retrievers or Shiba Inus.

      Training Philosophy:
      I utilize undulating periodization and high intensity interval training in my workouts. I believe it’s good to switch out exercises periodically.
