“I am originally from Long Island, New York where I grew up playing baseball. I am a Yankees fan and sadly I am a Jets fan. I moved out here to Colorado to meet my niece. I fell in love with Colorado and decided to move here immediately. I am so glad I did because, this is where I met my wife and began this crazy journey. I attended the National Personal Training Institute where I graduated from and then taught at. NPTI is also where I met Hannah! We were both personal trainers at a big box gym for many years until we decided to open our own facility. It has been almost 5 years and we are so thankful we took that leap of faith to go out on our own. We have a daughter named Lucy and we love that she has the opportunity to grow up in the midst of such an amazing gym community.

I am from Dallas, Texas however I have spent most of my life in Colorado. I grew up active, I was a gymnast for over 10 years and I ran track for a couple years. I went to college in Portland, OR and then on a whim I came back to Colorado to attend the National Personal Training Institute. I am beyond grateful that I did because I fell in love with personal training and fitness and I met and fell in love with my studly husband Matthew. We both did personal training at a big box gym for a couple of years and then we decided to open our own place. This was one of our best decisions! It has been quite an adventure and we have loved every step. We have a beautiful baby girl named Lucy and I love that she is surrounded by so many people who are passionate about life and fitness. We truly have such an incredible community at the gym and I love seeing it grow!

My personal training career started at a globo gym. I learned so much about what kind of trainer I wanted to be and what I expected out of a "gym". That did not fit into any of the expectations I had come to have so I opened my own personal training business. A few years in is when I had my first CrossFit experience. My workout life was never the same after that!!!!!!! My love of people grew even more and developed into an excitement for working out and training my clients I had never felt. CrossFit has made me feel strong and confident. I love coaching and I love meeting new people who have a desire to learn new skills and improve lifts and movement patterns!

“I am 28 and was born and raised in Colorado Springs. I was going to college to obtain a business degree but soon after realized I was not passionate about it at all and was tired of going to school for the sake of going to school. I decided to take a break and started working on my own fitness. As I got in better shape people started asking for advice and I realized that training was my calling. I wanted to do something where I could not only make a living but make an impact on peoples lives and in the community. I attended the National Personal Training Institute and have not looked back since. I have been a trainer since the begging of 2016 and absolutely love it!!! In my spare time I enjoy hiking with my husky, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family. Thank you guys for working as hard as you do and I love being apart of the Pick it UP community.”
