Being raising in an athletic family, I have been surrounded by sports for as long as I can remember. I tried every sport imaginable, but it didn’t take long before I was committed to baseball and basketball. Sports not only gave me a productive outlet, but they also allowed me to develop skills such as hand-eye coordination, reaction time, speed, and explosiveness which has translated into my day-to-day life. Many people don’t realize it, but our body’s are a work of art and there are countless ways that our body can be manipulated to perform better in all aspects of life. With that being said, our body is a continuous work in progress, but the smoother we move, the better we look and most importantly, feel. With our P4L athletes, my approach has stemmed from my sport-dense childhood and adult life. My approach to training our P4L community involves providing challenging, yet attainable tasks that allow your body to adapt to various movements. Whether I am training a youth group, athletes, or the general population, my aim is to improve my P4L athlete’s way of function and coordination. Our body is a continuous work in progress, and the smoother we move, the better we look and feel.
As I grew older with more diverse skillsets, I fell in love with the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes with competing along with frustrations. The constant challenge is now on the forefront of my agenda with clients, all the while making their goals attainable.
While my passions include sports, athletics, and bringing smiles to people’s faces, music is another very important part of my life - it keeps me motivated and brings me into the zone, especially during exercise. I’m also known around Perform for Life as the P4L DJ! Why not use music to push through a tough workout or even to push you through a tough day? Good music makes everything better!
Exercise is one of the main ingredients for a healthy lifestyle and finding ways to be creative with your approach helps make it fun and keeps it interesting for the long haul. When you exercise with like-minded people, you can learn to let go and even find yourself in conversation without realizing that you’ve completed 20 squats, or even laugh at yourself when you’re feeling uncoordinated! Through experience, I’ve found that implementing creative exercises helps to create a fun and versatile way of moving. Plus, it allows you to move in ways that you didn’t even think you could. Although I view myself as a natural athlete who will give any sport or outdoor activity a try, I firmly believe it’s never too late for you to develop the specific skill sets of an athlete. Over the years, I have developed an understanding of coordination as well as body awareness. With that said, understanding how your body moves is just as important as how it feels, and this should always be taken into consideration when learning a new skill. An athlete to me, means enhancing your movements skills and developing them to your advantage. Becoming more athletic will help in more than one way, whether that is to play an actual sport, go on adventures, or even daily life activities.
