Kids fitness 

The more screen time that kids are doing (computers and cell phones) and less time being active, it is no wonder that childhood obesity is on the rise and it is growing very quickly. I truly believe if we don’t put them on the right path young, then we will have bigger problems ahead.

I offer training for youth ages 12 and up. I have a spent 17 years working with kids in the summer camp, after-school settings, as well as a soccer referee and spent 5 years working as a youth staff on 2 different cruise liners.

I use body weight exercises as well as some fitness equipment. I try to make it enjoyable and fun. I consider myself a role positive model for children and youth.
