    Current student at UAB and a Type 1 Diabetic. I’ve been weight training for about 6 years and prior to that I played soccer. I’ve found exercise to be extremely beneficial to help control and manage my Diabetes. I have a huge passion for fitness and have seen firsthand the benefits of exercise, especially for those with treatable diseases.

    Training Philosophy:
    All muscle is built by time under tension. Something is always better than nothing.

    Skip Mathews

    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.
