"I always understood the value of having a strong work ethic and staying focused. I'm constantly encouraging my clients and athletes to work with a purpose...to push through every rep, every set, and every drill to get better. In order for others to understand this I feel what better way but to lead by example. Through my relentless pursuit to perfect my craft, years of experience, commitment and passion I am able to motivate and maximize the potential of those that refuse to settle for anything less than being GREAT!"
