I have played competitive sports almost my entire life. I have been involved in the health and fitness industry since I was 16, which led me to become a Certified Personal Trainer. In 2008, I realized that I wanted to help change lives and four years later graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and Health Education. I am now a Certified Physical Education and Health teacher, which ties in so well with coaching functional fitness and developing members' skills.
In 2010, I was sick and tired of the same monotonous training that so many people are accustomed to: such as 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions on everything and looking like a hamster on a treadmill. I was actively searching for something different. One day, during my day job, I was servicing the building where a gym was located and heard a whole lot of clanging and banging, people cheering, and loud music. I went in to see what was going on and was pumped up for the first time in a long time about training again. I started working out a couple of weeks later and haven’t turned back.
I love this place, the people, the community, and I want Mitten Fitness to be a place where everyone of all ages and backgrounds can train to become the best possible versions of themselves.
