ABOUT ME: With over 11 years of strength coaching, education, nutritional counseling, and personal training experience, I have been blessed to work with a wide variety of clientele. In order to maximize performance and health, I train my athletes and clients to improve muscle function and movement mechanics via advanced neuromuscular re-education techniques. By teaching individuals how to move and function the way The Almighty intended them to, it’s incredible to see how all characteristics of performance improve no matter the athlete or training goal. In addition to working hands on with my clients, I also enjoy writing exercise science articles and performance enhancement publications. I’ve devoted many years to researching and identifying the best and most effective training techniques for optimizing performance, fitness, and health. I continuously strive to find groundbreaking methods for enhancing performance, including cutting edge research and discoveries made during my doctoral dissertation.
