I originally stepped in the fitness world first working at GNC. As a sales rep I learned how certain supplements can help someone attain their fitness goals. While working at GNC I tried and learned about supplements myself and brought that knowledge to friends and family which then led me become a personal trainer.
I started as a personal trainer in 2004 at Bally Total Fitness at Pentagon Row. I was honored to learn from a group of talented individuals and was a team member of one the top 5 personal training Bally Total Fitnesses on the east coast. From there I learned many skills and training fundamentals I still use today.
At the end of 2011, Ballys was sadly bought out by LA Fitness. I then traveled to Xsport in Merrifield to train to become the assistant fitness manager but I turned it down when I realized I was not able to train clients in that position. I knew that i enjoyed training clients and helping them more then just selling the training.
I believe when working with clients as individuals or groups the biggest thing I try to implement while with them is making it fun and enjoyable. Workouts can be tough and demanding but if the individual doesn’t enjoy the workout, most of the time they wont continue.
Today I still train and work with a variety of clients. The greatest enjoyment for me is seeing someone who has worked hard day after day to attain the body and strength they always wanted.
So I invite you and a friend and your family to get started on your fitness journey an join me at Gym basics.
