I am a dedicated, hard-working, and highly motivated team player inspired by fitness. I maintain high ethical standards and critical thinking skills as well as excellent communication and customer relations skills. In addition, I am proficient in-patient assessment, time management and fitness program design/execution. I am also deeply committed to improving clients' lifestyles through fitness. I've always had a passion for fitness.  I decided to start my fitness career right out of high school volunteering from team sports for multiple schools. Volunteering for schools to enhance my knowledge of fitness, so I decided to further my knowledge with acquiring certifications. My first certification was NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). From there, I was able to train general population. I started at LA Fitness and grew my knowledge and moved on to YouFit. I am currently holding seven certifications that range from kid fitness, rehab, sport training, and etc.
