Hometown: Acton, MA
Fitness Wisdom: Keep it simple, have fun, and nail the basics. This is the formula that will make your fitness dreams come true. Because you are worth it! 😊
Favorite Superhero? Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson. Bo knows superheroes. Bo knows training. 💪
Favorite thing about AMP? The people and the culture. The #AMPfamily are all incredibly sweet, fun, and kind! It’s one big fitness family, and nothing beats being surrounded by a genuine community of people who care about each other.
WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO JOIN THE AMP FITNESS TEAM?
This is an amazing opportunity to be a part of a world-class team and environment where I have the opportunity to impact so many lives. The emphasis on continuing education and getting 1% better every single day, makes every day here fun and exciting. I could feel the amazing energy the first time I set foot in the Studio!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR TRAINING STYLE?
Da Bears. Grizzly bear on the outside, teddy bear on the Inside. I coach by listening, guiding, and pushing when it’s necessary. My favorite part of coaching is empowering people to learn habits they can use their entire life and I do this by making fitness fun and helping people understand a little bit of the why. If you know the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ AND are supported amazing things will happen.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR OTHER PASSIONS/HOBBIES IN LIFE?
I’m a simple man. I love dogs (especially my dog…she’s a registered emotional support dog and snuggle bug), movies, music, and sports.
You could consider me a bit of a renaissance man and I like exploring all that life has to offer. My movie and music taste is eclectic and I find beauty in all.
As for sports, I’ve grown up enjoying playing and enjoying them my entire life. It’s been a way to release anxious energy but more than that I’ve always loved being a part of a supportive community and culture. Like AMP!
HOW WILL YOU HELP THE SUPER HUMANS AT AMP SUCCEED?
I will truly do everything in my power to help anyone get even closer to their goals. Need emotional support? Need a spot? Have a question? Not sure what to do? Help with an exercise? Need a hug? High five? Coffee chat? Or just want to nerd out about exercise and self improvement? I got your back! I’m grateful to coach and support your epic fitness journey!
IF YOU COULD WEAR ONE OUTFIT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Larry bird jersey and uggs. It works for every season here in New England. 🤷♂️
