“I am passionate about health and fitness. A health scare a few years ago taught me the importance of proper recovery and avoiding over training. Working out and living a balanced, healthy lifestyle should be fun and not a chore. I hope to share my enthusiasm with my clients and help them with their fitness journey.”
