My goal for clients is to improve the health and skill related benefits that come from performing regular exercise. My style of training is functional based with the goal of increasing muscle mass, decreasing fat mass, improving mobility and stability. Functional strength training will increase the capacity to perform work, improve coordination and balance, and reduce the risk of injury. I want clients feeling better about performing activities of daily living but most importantly feeling better about themselves.
My fitness career started at a young age. It just clicked, and I started eating healthier and lifting weights. Fast track 10 years, I have tried every exercise program and “diet.” My goal, is to help everyone from high level athletes to your everyday person sift through the lies of social media and fitness “gurus” to educate you what is right and what does work. I specialize in macro nutrition coaching and functional fitness. Whether you want to find balance with your lifestyle and nutrition, lose some weight and gain confidence, physique goals or want to compete in functional fitness lets chat!

I started my fitness journey when I was in 7th grade going out for middle school football, but I never knew I wanted to be a strength coach until 2010 when I was in college talking to the University of Georgia football Strength Coach at the time, Joe Tereshinski. This is when I began to learn all the aspects of strength and conditioning. Fast forward five years and I graduated from Georgia State in May of 2015 with a B.S in Exercise and Sports Science. I then started an internship with the University of Georgia football strength staff, this time under Scott Sinclair. I worked with SEC championship athletes including Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Lorenzo Carter, Davin Bellamy, etc. From there I started another internship at Greater Atlanta Christian School under legendary strength coach Gary Schofield. With these experiences, I learned the difference between training elite athletes and training people just starting their fitness journey. As fun as training athletes was, I really enjoy training people in the general population and I can’t wait to start a fitness journey with you.
I was raised in Dacula, Georgia. Where I played sports my whole life. In high school I was a 3 sport athlete in football, basketball and lacrosse. I was then fortunate enough to go play lacrosse at the collegiate level. My athletic career has blessed me with many of opportunities. With those opportunities I’ve come across a lot of teachers and experiences that have helped me grow physically and mentally as well. My goal is not only for the client to crush their goals but to continue to seek growth and balance in all aspects of their life. My training style is functional fitness, increasing muscle mass and strength, sports performance, and weight loss. I also do nutrition coaching where I will be with you step by step as we change the way you eat. Leading to a sustainable diet that you will enjoy.
B.S in Kinesiology, NASM-CPT; pursuing ACSM-EP
Health and fitness started for me as a high school athlete, and a parent that was a trainer. And though it wasn’t my first career choice, life has brought it back full circle! I started my career in Culinary Arts and received my B.A. from The Culinary Institute of America; NY. I then moved to California, starting in Napa Valley and ending in Los Angeles. There I worked for world-renowned, Chef Thomas Keller. After working my way up within the restaurant group and opening 2 new establishments, I left to pursue my own passion projects in Holistic Health and Wellness. I became enthralled with the idea of improving my quality of life and personal health through what I ate and lifestyle changes(Restaurant life is a tough life!). There began my journey of sharing my milestones with others, and in turn helping them make life changing habits for themselves! My meal prep company, Premier Palate, is my way of sharing my love for food, and my desire to help others improve their quality life by providing them quality meals!
