AFAA Group Fitness Instructor CPR/AED Certified
Being an athlete through elementary and high school, I learned the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. After athletics I turned to the gym as my escape to de-stress while strengthening and conditioning my body. I quickly realized how much of a role nutrition plays in overall wellness in addition to fitness, as my lack of proper eating did not support my activity and my training wasn’t improving. Once I got on the right track I decided that I wanted to share my happiness and health with others and I decided to pursue a degree in dietetics. My goal is to help people feel great, inside and out, through nutrition and fitness. I believe that leading a healthy lifestyle is all about balance: eating chocolate isn’t going to ruin your hard work; just like eating a salad isn’t going to give you 6-pack abs. But, with proper lifestyle choices, anyone can accomplish anything. I love being able to watch my clients reach their goals one by one, and I love supporting them every step of the way.

Growing up I was a multi-sport athlete and went on to play Division 1 Football at the University of Connecticut. While there, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and my Master’s Degree in Sport Management. During Graduate School at UConn, I became an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach, working primarily with the Men’s Football and Women’s Lacrosse teams. I learned from some of the best, most experienced strength coaches in the field and trained some of the most elite athletes in the country who went on to have professional careers in the NFL. During my athletic career, I experienced a number of major injuries that took away from my playing experience. Throughout the rehab process, I fell in love with the weight room and decided that I wanted to make a career of helping individuals better themselves through proper training and motivation. I am a principle-based strength and conditioning coach, not a philosophy based coach. I use scientifically proven methods to help my clients reach their goals, no matter what they are.

I grew up a very active kid who participated in sports year-round. Following high school graduation I served 4 years on active duty in the United States Army. During my time in the service I witnessed many fellow soldiers suffering from knee and back pain. I knew that if I wanted to stay healthy and in the fight, I had to be strong. I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by great leaders who sparked my passion for strength and fitness. This led me to pursue a degree in Exercise Science at the University of Rhode Island. My goal is to help improve the quality of life of every person I can, as well as help them achieve their personal health and fitness goals. I use scientifically supported exercise principles and my knowledge of anatomy and exercise physiology to plan safe, effective, and fun workouts.

LifeStories

Chip B.
Some mornings, it's hard to get up early for the workout, but knowing there will be friendly faces to greet me helps a lot.
Since April of 2018, I've lost 85 pounds. Swimming every work-day morning at the Esplanade Fitness Center has been a big help in reaching this weight. Of course, better diet and the support of others has also been a big contribution. However, the availability of a fitness center (through my company) helped me get there a little quicker and healthier.

I'd like to thank Katie, Howard, and Henry, who are always helpful and greet me every morning with a smile plus a cheerful hello. Some mornings, it's hard to get up early for the workout, but knowing there will be friendly faces to greet me helps a lot.

I've still got a ways to go in my weight loss journey, but thanks to having a place to go to swim each workday morning, it's a little easier and a little more fun! Thanks LifeStart!
