I recruited 200 student athletes on campus for 2 years. Assisted in all phases of coaching for designated sport’s team

I was the SICA West Conference Champion 2005, 2003 Junior Olympics 4x100 National Champs and 4x400 Runner-up for Kansas city Sprinters Elite. I was 4th at 165 lbs. in 2006 NJCAA Wrestling Nationals for Harper College and ranked #1 in the Nation wrestling 2007 for Harper College.

What to Expect

As a personal trainer I specialize in targeting certain muscle groups in your body to give you the results you are looking for. I want to balance your body-weight so you won’t have muscle imbalances as you grow older. I target stabilizer muscles. I train the antagonistic muscles in your body which means the smallest muscles in your body. I have found through research and experimentation that isometric training is one of the best ways to loose weight and tone your body, beside the typical running and lifting weights.
