I am a StrongFirst Elite instructor (I hold all StrongFirst certifications). I am passionate about building strength using the StrongFirst principles. I also love the science of goal achievement. The bigger and meatier the goal, the better!
I first started training with kettlebells in 2014. As I became stronger and immersed myself in the StrongFirst system, I discovered the power of dedicated, disciplined training, and how it can change lives for the better. In addition to being a StrongFirst and TRX®certified fitness instructor, I am also a Precision Nutrition Level 1 certified nutrition coach.
My passion is around leading others to live happier, more fulfilled lives through working towards strength and fitness goals and overcoming self-limiting beliefs and habits. I lead by example, teaching and motivating others to achieve their full potential using the tools of strength training, nutrition, and self-reflection. I believe that through the discipline of strength training, we can learn and master all the skills necessary to become our most powerful, fulfilled, confident, successful selves.
I first started training in Krav Maga in 2009 when Chau encouraged me to attend one of his classes at Krav Maga Toronto. Since then, I have trained in Krav Maga, Muay Thai Kickboxing, hardstyle kettlebells, barbell, bodyweight, and a variety of other fitness programs.
My lifelong passion for fitness and the team environment has led me down a variety of related paths, including being a three-season varsity athlete in high school (volleyball, swimming, and lacrosse) as well as leading backpacking trips for incoming first-year students at my alma mater, Dartmouth College. I completed three half-marathons in my twenties and have since shifted my focus to hardstyle kettlebell training, strength, and conditioning.
