I have always loved fitness starting with dancing as a little kid in talent shows. My mother would take me to every family event to battle my cousins. “Boy get out there and dance”, my mother would say. When I thought I was losing I came out with my ace. What would that be you ask? My James Brown Split. Wooo!! “That boy can dance” the grown-ups would say.
My fitness interest expanded after the discovery of
the lakefront bike trail here in Chicago. I became so
consumed by cycling that I started a cycling club
called The WindChasers. We have travel 125 miles on
trips to a neighboring state. We attended a 25 mile
L.A.T.E ride in Chicago in June 1am all night and
morning. I also did the Hell Run 5k Mud Obstacle Run.
I couldn’t have jumped too high over that fire.

the fitness industry. I also received my advanced specializations in MMA conditioning Specialist, Senior Fitness Specialist and Group Personal Training Specialization certifications.
