Personal Philosophy

I will connect my knowledge and experience from competitive years of soccer, track, cycling, strength training, and health education, OT and PT clinics, coach, personal experience of adapting, and recovering from two major surgeries, and health limitations to always seek the program and exercises, that excites, challenges, and will lead to a fit life.
