About Coach

I was late to the fitness game and only started working out seriously in 2013 at age 37. My youngest of 3 kids was just a toddler, and I went to a boot camp class and couldn't do 10 push-ups, and I realized maybe I wasn't as healthy as I thought I was. I also had been practicing chiropractic for about ten years at that point and was having some tendinitis and overuse issues in my shoulders, and I knew building strength would help. Over the next two years, I did boot camp 3x per week and added in weightlifting 2x per week. I realized my eating wasn't supporting this very well and dove into learning how to fuel my body with proper nutrition. I read many nutrition books, logged food, and counted macros for about 19 months. My energy, sleep, and workouts leveled considerably when I focused on nutrition. Eventually, I started to share what I learned and teach others. I continue to do seminars, nutritional coaching, and wellness programs in my chiropractic practice, in partnership with High Vibe Fitness and in the community. By 2015 I was looking for another fitness option and tried a class at High Vibe, and I was instantly hooked. The energy, the people, the variety of workouts, and the community are awesome. There is a real support system here and the coaches and culture are the best in the business. In 2019 I got certified as a CrossFit level 1 trainer, a great extension of my education and experience as a chiropractor. Knowing how the body should move and how form dictates function is invaluable as a doctor, athlete, and coach, and I use these principles daily. In this aspect of my life, my perception of not being naturally athletic is my enemy. Sports didn't come easy to me, and I never could run very fast or jump very high, and back then, kids didn't train, so the more gifted natural athletes had an advantage for sure. I learned that getting fit and strong can override a lack of natural ability, and I am stronger, faster, and more coordinated now than I was back then. It also has impacted my health in such a positive way and has made me better and more productive at work and at home. There's no way I could balance my life's demands and my interests and passions without my health and fitness. My motivation is to help others live well, age, and prevent disease through their lifestyle. Our bodies need to move properly is key to aging well. Health should be a top priority for everyone, and movement, function, and strength are vital to enjoying life! I love helping people set goals, level up their habits, and see their capabilities. I'm motivated by the energy of progress and the spirit of a community with a common goal.
