Personal training is about being able to use your body as your own gym. I take experiences from my background in professional soccer, semi-pro boxing and martial arts to teach my clients that your body is your ally. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
While I was in high school in El Salvador, you are expected to choose your career and start learning about your trade. Here and while I was traveling with my professional team, I became fascinated with rehabilitation and physical therapy. There I learned that movement is a medicine for creating change!
As early as I can remember I have always had fun playing sports and being active. Having gone through 3 knee surgeries and several other injuries, my passion for training comes from overcoming obstacles.
I believe in taking a comprehensive individual evaluation not only of the body, but of the mind before creating a customized fitness program. Building a champion on the outside first starts with building a champion on the inside. In order to see improvements in our daily living, we must start living to improve daily.
At a young age, I lost my grandfather to diabetes. What I learned was that he knew this could have been prevented with a well-balanced diet and exercise but could not make the change. At 15, I started becoming more conscious of what I ate, and began exercising regularly. It wasn't easy at first, but as I started seeing results and my friends started asking me for help.
Nothing is more rewarding than being able to play a small role in changing someone's life! Whether it's to prevent disease, reversing an illness, or simply just to boost self-confidence, if it's important to you, it's important to me. So, how can I help you?
My personal mission as a performance coach is to make each of my clients feel confident in themselves and safe when performing their exercise routine. My love for training developed as I started to help my family and friends reach their goals. My favorite sport has always been soccer and I even played for Falls Church High School. But I also have experience in swimming and boxing.
What I didn't realize was how my lifestyle as a kid influenced the decisions I made later in life. Being healthy is a culture and it is my job to help make this culture a part of your life and your family's life as well.
Fitness has always been my passion since the age of eight. I grew up in an athletic family, however, it was still a challenge for me since I had a slower metabolism and easily gained unwanted weight. This propelled my journey of learning how an overweight person can achieve fitness goals. Approximately 80% of getting fit is in your diet and the other 20% is with the right fitness plan. Whether you are an athlete, a parent, or someone new to diet and exercise, I can help you achieve results. The results I gained from this journey made me passionate about helping others reach their full potential.
I specialize in weight loss transformation and fixing muscular imbalances by customizing the program to optimize the client's physical performance.
For as long as I can remember, I have treated physical health as a major component in my life. Understanding the dynamics and mechanics of the human body has always been a huge passion of mine. Being a dancer for a majority of my life allowed me to further dive into the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and how to consistently maintain this lifestyle. With this knowledge, I strive to teach and inform members of the community to understand their body, and how to properly care for it.
As a dancer, I encountered several obstacles that forced me to think outside the box with my training. These changes shaped me into the trainer I am today and gave me the ultimate motivation to spread this idea of having a mindful mindset with regards to healthy living. It is truly a rewarding feeling to know that I can help change the direction of someone’s life through amplifying their overall physical and mental health.
