Training Philosophy: Never stop; never show the weights you are scared. Walk away after each training session knowing you gave it your all and that you are one step closer to your results.

Nutrition Philosophy: You are what you eat; nutrition is 65% of your results. If you don’t eat what your body needs, how can you expect your body to look the way you want it to or do what you want it to do?

Favorite Quote:

“Training is a mindset, nutrition is a life style.”
