Movement is my obsession: it allows us to learn, adapt, and grow.
I learned to move as a gymnast, and as a team sport player in my youth. Later, I got strong under a barbell, but started to move poorly. When I reevaluated my priorities I decided to re-learn to move better, and started to leverage my gymnastics background and specific mobility training to give myself the best of both worlds.
I had trouble around food for a long time, despite an interest in nutrition. But great nutrition builds the pillars that your movement practice stands upon, so I worked to improve my habits and behaviours around food.
Coaches helped me improve my ability to move, to get strong, and to eat better.
That's why I became a coach myself: because I understand that doing it alone is rarely the best path to success.
Now I coach and get coached for the things I like to do: Olympic weightlifting, running, team sports, CrossFit, gymnastics, and staying mobile and strong. I also coach other people to manage their nutrition, because I understand that it can be tricky and uncomfortable for some of us.
If you're looking to move, eat, and train better, I can help. I will push you and I will help you clear roadblocks.
I will help you problem solve and become a better athlete. Because I didn't do it alone, and neither should you.
