Fitness is my passion, and I have always had an active, healthy lifestyle. I was born and raised in upstate New York. I am AFAA Certified, Member of NSCA. Certified in CPR/AED and First Aid. My fitness career includes working as a personal trainer, coach, manager and owner for over 30 years. Then in 2012 I found CrossFit and fell in love with it. Love the fact that CrossFit gives you a great workout NO matter your age and level of fitness. Love to inspire people to reach their goals through exercise and proper nutrition, and CrossFit is perfect for that purpose. My mantra is positive thinking, good nutrition, and functional exercise will help you achieve your personal goals.
