NASM Certified Personal Trainer
I spent much of my years as a child and a teen being overweight, mostly through a habit of bad eating combined with an intense love for sweets and soda. During my senior year of high school in 2010 I lost my father to liver cancer and started searching for happiness in the food I consumed. Fast forward to a few months after graduation I had reached my highest weight of 250 pounds. There was a moment at Cedar Point where I could not fit on the Millenium Force and I knew something had to change.
Following that incident, I started doing little things to try and lose weight. My goal was not to be healthy, but to be skinny and I tried many fad diets. None of it stuck, as to be expected, but I was slowly losing some weight. In 2015, I started working with a friend who was a personal trainer and made the decision to finally buckle down and start the journey to a healthier life. Through his help, I lost 20 pounds in the first 30 days and during that time, I always kept the mindset that I could do anything for 30 days. After that initial month, I had created some better eating habits and finally started taking my health more seriously. After that, the rest is history.
If someone would have told me when I started all this that I would become a certified personal trainer myself, I probably would have laughed in their face. The help I received from various trainers along my journey is what led me to becoming a trainer myself. I now want to do what I can to pay it forward and not only help others change their lives for the better but to share my story and show them that anything is possible.
