I’m an Austin, Tx based trainer with over 13 year’s experience as a personal trainer and nutrition coach, I have trained all types of clients from corporate executives to former NFL players who are working toward goals such as weight loss, rehabilitation and sports-specific training. Training the gamut of all types of people has given me the ability to be what I like to say: “I’m a Swiss army knife trainer.” There isn’t a goal I can’t help my clients reach or an obstacle I can’t work around to help my clients to achieve what they always thought was unobtainable.

I’m also an Austin, Tx based trainer who went from never working out to competing in a figure competition. That journey showed me how much not only exercise but nutrition plays a roll in a total transformation process. This led me to wanting to help others with their goals no matter how small or how big. Working with clients of all ages and fitness levels. I specialize in weight loss, corrective exercise and sports specific training. I’m here to give 100% to any person that is willing to change their lives for the better.

I am an Austin, TX based trainer with a varied athletic and training background, from competing in football and wrestling throughout my childhood to running marathons and ultramarathons. I believe that with proper planning, training, and consistency, anyone is capable of accomplishing their goals. I work with clients from all walks of life, with goals as simple as being able to play with their grandkids to as lofty as being able to run 100 miles, and anything in between. My approach is one that favors consistency and moderation over intensity, providing a safe, structured, enjoyable way for my clients to reach their desired outcome.

I may be just like you. For my entire adult life, my workout regimen consisted of a few trips to a random Bootcamp throughout the years, where I became immediately discouraged about how out of shape I was and decided that it just wasn’t for me. I never thought that I even had the ability to be a “physically fit” person. Then in July of 2017 I started working with Marlo and Brenda. Although I am still on my journey, I am so excited to be teaching group classes, and to help you to understand that getting in shape doesn’t have to be so scary and unobtainable. Let’s find our way through this together.

My innovative and dynamic approach to fitness, combined with a motivational spirit, are some of the factors that create a one of a kind workout. I am excited to bring my passion of fitness to the city of Austin.
