I grew up in New York City with very humble beginnings. As a child, like most New York City children, I spent a lot of time in front of the television and eating junk food. After years of being overweight and unhealthy I decided to make a life change. I began working out regularly and almost immediately fell in love with fitness. Boxing became my sport of choice and fueled my progression into a healthier lifestyle. The passion and love I felt for fitness lead me to become a certified personal trainer and later a strength and conditioning coach. The joy I receive from changing someones life physically, spiritually and mentally is the most rewarding feeling ever!
