Trainer of the Year Winner

Textbox Section

There’s no feeling quite like getting recognized for serving others.

From day one of my personal training career, I've worked to maintain my own personal standard of excellence in service to help others live the best lives possible. IDEA, ACE, and PFP Magazine – three of the top fitness industry educational organizations – have high standards and they have each honored me with Personal Trainer of the Year honors.

The feeling is indescribable, so I'm not going to try. Here are some photos of memorable moments...
