In my career as an athlete, I have found that there are three things that can help attain your personal goals: hard work, passion, and plenty of support. I would say I was a late developer. Because of this, I was often the last one on the practice field, in the lifting room, or in the training room. I was putting in the extra time where I needed to put it to help myself reach the goals I had set. At a young age I learned that hard work is the backbone of any performance worth having. I also learned passion and heart can make things you once thought unattainable, a reality. The last thing that I have always thought affects success if having the support to get you there. My coaches, teammates, family and friends were always pushing me to be better, helping me up when I was down, and drove me to be the best that I could be. This is what I strive to do as a coach, offer my clients the same support that I have experienced as an athlete to help them reach goals of any size, share my passion to help them find joy in their workouts, and instill that a little bit of hard work goes a long way.
