I am a new Personal Trainer for the University of Iowa Recreational Services. Sports and physical activity have always been a huge part of my life. I’ve played football, baseball and ran track my entire life and immediately found a passion for being active and weightlifting. I love baseball more than anything, and I still play during the summer. I’ve always had a lot of support from my family and coaches for sport and exercise. My biggest goal in life is to be that same support and make a positive change for many others. I want to help people reach their goals, be healthy, and do the things they’ve always wanted to do!


Everyone is different and fitness is about finding what you like and making it a life-long hobby. A healthy life = a happy life
