Level 3 Crossfit Instructor (CCFT), OPT (optimal performance training) program design and assessment, Crossfit anatomy course, FMS level 1 (functional movement screening).



I was 16 years old when I was first introduced to functional fitness and through it was able to change my entire life. I went from being a timid kid to finding the power behind a barbell and confidence in my abilities. By the time I was able to find a home within Face Your Fears in 2017, I had lost 50 lbs and found my passion. I nabbed two medals at my first powerlifting meet in 2019 and have been enjoying the ride ever since. More recently I’ve found that bodybuilding, cycling, and running are making their way into more of my free time. I love helping others reach their fullest potential through coaching and aim to create an environment that is encouraging and supportive.


Level 3 Crossfit Instructor (CCFT), OPT (optimal performance training) program design and assessment, Crossfit anatomy course, FMS level 1 (functional movement screening).



“Once a member that evolved into a coach, I have enjoyed working out side by side with everyone and it only gets better by being able to coach them along the way now ”From a young age I always enjoyed playing sports but wasn’t always in the best shape. Around the age of 20 I entered the world of functional fitness and went from playing mainly competitive Ice Hockey to much more. Through functional fitness I became a “jack of all trades” starting with Collegiate Lacrosse, Triathlons, Ultra Endurance sports and more. I am also ACE Youth Fitness Specialist and have a Teaching Credential in Physical Education Every day I look to push myself and others to keep achieving more!

My journey in fitness was ignited in late 2007 and its fire has been fueled by a passion for helping others achieve their very best.
I obtained my B.S. in Kinesiology at CSULB before moving to the Santa Clarita Valley. During my 17 years of training & sports performance coaching, I have attained experience in the full spectrum of fitness. From training at a physical therapy clinic to working with elite level collage athletes, youth athletes, pro athletes, & high school CIF champions.
Developing the right program takes a deep understanding of the body & mind that I’ve strive to learn as much as I can about. At FYF Athletics, we strive to show that Functional Fitness and strength training is meant for everyone.
Our facility proudly serves Santa Clarita, Saugus, Newhall and Valencia athletes and is meant for beginners and experienced individuals alike.
