BIO

From the ago of 11 to 20, I fought addiction on the streets of Baltimore. When I turned 19, I moved to Virginia with my mother and step-father. In my efforts to try and stay out of trouble, I found that idle time was a problem for me. At the end of the work day, I didn’t have anything to do and didn’t know anyone in the area. Out of boredom, I began lifting some old weights I found in the garage. Something funny happened when I finished working out; I felt great! Don’t get me wrong, exercise was very difficult in the beginning, especially after nine years of a very different lifestyle. But I refused to give up. Quickly, working out became a part of my life.Wanting to take my fitness to the next level, I went in search of a gym. The day I stepped foot into Gold’s Gym Clocktower, I felt at home — I felt like I belonged there. Something moved me to just go up and ask one of the trainers how I could become one of them. He told me I needed to get certified and told me where to go. I attended some classes, took their test and passed. A few of the senior trainers took me under their wing, encouraging me to pick up more certifications and better myself, and so I did. Slowly, I started building a reputation at Gold’s. I feel I relate to my clients’ struggles and can encourage them that if I could change my life, so can they.
