Philosophy that drives my work:

I see fitness through the lens of aging, as time comes for us all! Influenced by Atul Gawande’s BEING MORTAL, my goal is for us all to be as strong and mobile as possible for as long as possible, so we can maximize our functional independence and individual agency. The best part is it’s never too early or too late to make a difference.

Favorite workout:
The perfect deadlift
