I have been a competitive runner for ten years now, and have done extensive research on fitness and the latest trends.

I feel more than qualified to teach fitness because I know, first hand, what it takes to compete at a high level and stay in great shape. I have also taken anatomy classes, sports medicine, and several biology course that have allowed me to understand the science behind many of the fitness principles I teach.
