Biography

“It’s not how hard you hit, it’s how hard you get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward!” — Rocky Balboa

My main motivation to get into this profession was to wake up everyday and enjoy what I do. As I started working with more athletes, I realized that seeing people push themselves to their limit and feeling more confident in themselves was the most rewarding part of my job. I truly have a passion for teaching and guiding people towards a life of movement and achieving goals. I feel that what we do here at CFD makes people both mentally and physically stronger. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing community.
