The Blue Heron Academy, CPT
ACE Certified Personal Trainer, NASM Certified Personal Trainer
As a life-long fitness enthusiast, I have enjoyed high school sports, weight training, body building, and the thrill of pushing myself to be the best I can be. That desire carries over to the way I train my clients, enabling them to reach and exceed their goals. I love my job because I get to see people's dreams come true.
After owning and operating my own gym for several years I realized I enjoy working with individuals and QCI Fitness is truly, "one-on-one personal training perfected." Sports training, general conditioning, and nutritional counseling are my specialties. For over 15 years, I have trained clients ranging from college and professional athletes, to those with mobility issues to people who just need to get in shape and lose a few pounds. I'm here to help you learn how to develop the skills you need to make a positive lifestyle change.
Grand Rapids, MI
Certified Personal Trainer
Since early childhood I have been active in athletics and staying in shape. I started playing sports at an early age. I then went on to ply football and wrestle in high school at Grandville and still compete in wrestling matches. I decided to turn my passion for fitness and training into a career three years ago while living in Texas. I have experience in training all different types of clients that vary in age, size, and skill level. I know through my own journey of getting into shape that hard work does really pay off. I use my past experiences to help my clients hit their goals as well. My greatest strengths as a personal trainer include corrective exercise, strength gaining, weight loss, MMA training, boxing and Ju-Jitsu.
Spring Lake, MI
Michigan State University, Bachelor's in Kinesiology
American College of Sports Medicine, Certified Personal Trainer
When I was five years old I started playing soccer and have been involved in sports ever since. I carried this passion for sports into my college career at Michigan State University where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology with a specialization in health promotion. During my time at MSU I played intramural soccer and went on to play for the Division I women's rugby team. I also was involved with research in the Kinesiology department. I finished my college career with an internship in the strength and conditioning department where I worked under the head coach training athletes in sports such as women's basketball, women's tennis, baseball, and gymnastics just to name a few.
Since graduating from MSU, I became a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I loved the idea of becoming a personal trainer because it integrates strength and conditioning, physical therapy, and health promotion among other things all in one career. I enjoy working with people to achieve their goals and watch them transform not only physically, but most importantly mentally.
