I have a passion for help people find their strongest self, inside in out. Let me help you find your path to health and happiness.


Fitness, sports and lifting have been some of the great passions of my life. After 8 years running youth sports at the local YMCA, my passion for developing youth athletes only grew. Now my primary focus is on developing the young athletes in our community to help them excel through sport and through life. Though most of my in person work is geared towards the youth, I want to help as many people reach their goals as possible. For that reason I offer program design and coaching that is available to all ages.

Personal Training

  • 1 hour long sessions

  • $75/session

  • Held in a private home gym  or in your home

  • Payment plans available for packages

  • Packages include nutrition consultation


  • Jump Start - $425 for 6 sessions ($70/session)

  • Goal Seeker - $750 for 12 sessions ($62/session)

  • Commit to Fit - $1,200 for 24 sessions ($50/session)


*Sessions never expire* 

Whether you need help getting into a groove with fitness, are training for a competition, or just want help feeling better, personal training is a great way to get there.

As your coach, I will be in your corner to help you reach your goals. I will plan and implement your training sessions as well as track your progress so you can see how far you have come. The goal is to get better, one day at a time.

Not only am I there to train you physically but we can dive into mindset, nutrition, and managing expectations so that you set goals at a pace that you can stick to them.

Come work with me and let's change your life for the better!

Pesonal Training
Youth Strengthand Conditioning

Youth Strength and Conditioning

Semi-Private youth training is designed for athletes 12-17 years old who are looking for a more personalized approach to their training. Every athlete will have a program design specific to them. Including their goals, their seasons, their strengths and weaknesses, and their schedule. They will work out with up to 3 other athletes (4 per class).

Programing will focus on general fitness to build speed, power, and overall strength with specifications based on sport.

$100/month  for 2 session each week - Total of 8 sessions per month

$200/month for 4 sessions each week - Total of 16 sessions per month

That's only $12.50 per session!

$20 joiner fee

The basics of strength and conditioning don't have to be put off until kids are in junior high or high school. And training doesn't have to be tedious. It can be playful.


Learning and building strong body mechanics can set athletes up for a long career in sports by getting them ahead of the curb, reducing the chance of injury, and developing strength and speed that can be utilized in their sports.


Lernto Lift

Learn to Lift

  • 1 hour long sessions

  • 5 or less participants per session

  • Held in a private home gym  

  • $20/class

The barbell can be intimidating. Whether you are new to lifting or are looking to take your lifts to the next level, this class is for you.

Learn to Lift sessions will focus on one major lift for an hour. During the session each participant will be coached on how to properly perform the lift and given adjustments and cues based on their individual body mechanics, strengths, and weaknesses. 

As lifts progress, participants will receive individual coaching on improving their lifts for use in training, competition, or to further enhance their performance for sport.

Powerlifting Coaching

Powerlifting Coaching

Powerlifting coaching is a membership that is based on getting you ready to compete on the platform. We will start with a meeting to discuss your goals and when you plan to compete. From there, a program will be built to best prepare you for your competition.

Handling at local competitions while representing Building the Beast are included in the membership fees. Handling at meets over 150 miles away have an additional cost of travel expenses.

$100/month + $20 one time payment

I have been lifting weights most of my life. Strength has always been a passion of mine. In 2020 a friend of mine convinced me to actually compete for the first time. It has quickly become my passion. Since then I have claimed 6 state records and qualified and competed at a  national level.

On top of loving the sport for myself, I love introducing and teaching the sport to others. Competing is so much better with someone in your corner. Whether that is helping with the training or acting as handler in competition so that you can focus on your lifts. 

Progrm Design

Program Design

  • Personalized training for your goals.

  • Program adjusted monthly so you have time to see progress but not get bored.

  • One month of programing for the coast of one personal training session.

  • $75/month + $20 one time payment

You know your way around a gym but want some help getting the results you want. Maybe you have been going in without a plan because you don't know where to start. 

That's where I come in!

If you have specific goals you are going to want a specific plan to reach those goals. One size fits all programs are available all over the internet but they are kind of like one size fits all clothes. They don't fit just right.

My Philosophy

My goal as a coach and personal trainer is to help you find strength in body and mind. I believe everyone has an athlete within them, it is what humans are built to do.


You are strong.

You are powerful.

You are unstoppable.

So, what is stopping you?

For many of us it is time, equipment availability, knowledge, mixed messages, or confusion.  Am I supposed to do cardio or weight train? Am I supposed to cut calories or increase my protein? How do I get stronger? How do I achieve the infamous tone? What does any of this even mean?

The key, to health and longevity is to find what drives YOU.  What makes you feel good, confident, and proud in your body? Because our bodies are so much more than what they look like. Let me help you find the athlete within!
