I’ve been incredibly passionate about helping others for a large majority of my life. There’s truly nothing that makes me happier than being able to effectively give someone the tools to take their life back. I started my fitness journey like everyone else, having absolutely no clue what I was doing but loving it regardless.
After countless mistakes and wrong turns, I finally hit a stride and began making consistent progress. I got started coaching my friends and family, providing the guidance they needed to consistently lose weight and build lean mass. I quickly realized this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, helping people that is. After high school I pursued a degree in Movement Science with a concentration in Exercise Science at Westfield State University. During my final two years there, I worked nearly full-time as a personal trainer and intern strength coach at various gyms in the area, including Conca Sport and Fitness.
During my time in school, I became interested in Natural (drug-free) Bodybuilding, making it a goal to compete one day. That day did indeed come in 2016 when I competed and won both my categories at the OCB Yankee Classic. I later went on to compete at the 2019 INBF Autumn Explosion and later qualified for the 2019 WNBF World Championships where I placed fourth in the world under the ‘Junior’ category. Working closely with those hoping to compete, or simply trying to push their physique to the limit has been amazing and something I very much plan on doing for the long haul.
After graduating, I acquired a number of certifications I view as essential for nearly any coach trying to help others as best as they can. Some of these include Mike Boyle’s Functional Strength Coach, NSCA’s Personal Training Certification, and Precision Nutrition’s Level 1 & 2 Certification. They aren’t everything, but providing proof that you have a great base of knowledge to start/continue your coaching career is too important to be overlooked. The information is important, but what you do with it matters even more!
I also love the group fitness dynamic at Conca Sport and Fitness. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced, given there are a lot of misconceptions about group training. Picture an incredibly high-energy environment with top-level coaching and programming where you’re surrounded by a supportive group of individuals trying to get better just like you. On top of running a majority of the group sessions here at CSF, I also offer one-on-one training and nutritional coaching for those with more specific goals looking for a more individualized approach.
For members who’d like a more personalized approach, we feel it’s important to offer a higher tier of coaching to provide those seeking to reach their extreme goals or achieve them in the fastest, most efficient way possible without sacrificing their health or well-being.
