My strengths are anything pulling. My background in swimming helped me develop good upper body strength. I'm always working on trying to get stronger with my squats and deadlift.
I grew up playing water polo and started coaching elementary school water polo once I was a sophomore in high school. I've always liked leading and teaching and seeing the progress that comes from consistency. That transferred to fitness when I started coming to Rebuilt a few years ago. I thought being a fitness coach was something I was interested in. I can help people make progress and better themselves.
A turning point in my life was when I realized I needed to do what I was right, and not what I was told was right. Not everyone's opinion matters. Everyone looks at life through a different lens. Realizing that helped me learn how to work with people despite differences, and I learned how to love everyone more.
I like coaching beginners and students who have a lot to learn but are excited to learn. Seeing them learn and grow with the basic movements and make quick progress is exciting and rewarding to see.
