For me, running and fitness has been my greatest passion in life. When I was 9 years old, my babysitter took me to my first road race in an effort to wear me out . . . I remember sprinting off the line when the gun fired and running out of steam two miles in. The first thing I asked my babysitter (Mrs. April) when I regained my composure was if we could come back next week and run it again. I was hooked.
I know what it takes help someone get fit, I understand what is necessary to work towards that end in a manner that will minimize the risk of injury, and I believe in the model we have established to provide an ideal balance of cardiovascular work with a functional strength foundation that leads to overall fitness. While I have stepped away from the collegiate setting, I will always be a coach and I look forward to working with all those aspiring to better themselves - young or old, elite or novice.
