Fitness is more than lifting heavy weights multiple times or being able to run a marathon. To me, fitness is our understanding of “balance” in its entirety. Yes, you will be exposed to strength and cardiovascular training in a gym environment. However, you will also learn to manage your time and push yourself through stress… both extremely valuable skills to build throughout our lives. I believe that the sense of community in a gym can be beneficial in helping us develop these skills and accomplish our goals. My background consists of research in the field of human biomechanics. I am fascinated by the relationship of all of the components of our body. One small change at our hips, for example, can completely change our movement mechanics, improve posture, or reduce back pain. I have conducted research in engineering relating to ankle/knee injuries along with spinal implants. I hope to innovate in the field of exercise science by designing new equipment or new exercise methodologies that can be tailored to more diverse populations. The motto I live by is to always push to be the best version of yourself. Let’s continue to get better every day together!
