How long have you been a part of the community and what do you love about it?
I’ve been a member of P360 for a little over 4 years. I joined the gym in fall/winter 2015. My favorite part of the community is the friendly competition that pushes me to go heavier, harder, and further than I would on my own. There’s nothing like the camaraderie built when you go through a really tough workout together.
What do you hope to accomplish with your coaching? I hope to help people fall in love with fitness the way I have. To enjoy doing the things that other people would shy away from. To become the best version of themselves.
What should people expect with your coaching style? Motivational, friendly, relateable, fun. While still having an emphasis on proper form and full reps.
What are your personal philosophies with fitness and nutrition?
First, find a way, any way to get moving. Once you’ve done that, build consistency. Don’t cheat reps because you’re only cheating yourself. As far as nutrition goes. I find a meal that meats my macro & micronutrient needs depending on workload. I make some adjustments when necessary. But then I just make that same meal every day. It’s boring but it helps me take my mind off of food.
What local food are you crushing and what are you ordering?
Vallartas Express, Poke Chop, Sandbox Pizza, Bronx Pizza. The great debate is always between Pizza or Burritos. But mostly my diet consists of broccoli, cauliflower, a meat, eggs, avocado, and sweet potatoes. Ad nauseam.
What’s a fun fact about yourself people would be surprised to learn?
I have one half fake tooth. I once won a Call of Duty 2 national championship in New York.
