Past Job Experience
I have worked for both small studios and large commercial gyms as well as on my own. I do a mixture of functional and traditional style of weight training, depending on the client's needs and goals...which can vary from strength coaching to athletic performance to metabolic workouts. I like to use the TRX, Bosu, med balls, battle ropes, anything a little out of the ordinary. I recently got into oly lifting & doing a little Crossfit since Dec. 2013. I am looking to grow my part time job into a full time career upon graduation. I am interested in teaching and management positions as well.
