In 2016 I joined the staff at the prestigious Baldwin School as their Strength and Conditioning Coach. This position is rewarding and continues to provide excitement helping to shape the athletic experience on campus. Additionally, I have earned a US Soccer Youth Coaching License so that I may share my passion for the game. Because I believe in fitness by example, I enjoy participating in a variety of sports including soccer, tennis, and roller hockey. I can also be found participating in a variety of charity 5k's and the annual Broad Street Run. It is my belief that exercise, a healthy diet, a positive mind, and a good coach (friend) are the keys to staying youthful and energetic.
Champions in Training began in 2005 as a sports performance company for youth athletes where my focus was to work with local teams and individuals in order to provide smart, high level training on the field and in the gym. Simultaneously, I contracted with Bodytime Personal Training in Bryn Mawr as a personal trainer working with adults of all ages and aspirations. I have had the privilege of leading and motivating many people along the way and, frankly, I love it. In 2015 I merged these two business entities which allows me to present a complete fitness and sports performance establishment that is focused on each person's specific needs, whatever they might be. Our clients range in age from 8 to 88, which keeps us inspired to excel as fitness professionals.
