Thank you for your interest in training for your child. I commend your desire to provide opportunities for your youngster to be healthy, strong and fit.
As someone who started working out as a kid myself, I can attest to all the benefits that come along with strength training.
Besides just being physically stronger, the “iron” made me stronger mentally as well. Lifting weights has taught me many life lessons including work ethic, discipline, goal setting, grit and determination. It also built my confidence and self esteem at a crucial time in my life.
My mission is to instruct and inspire people to live stronger, healthier lives; and I’d like nothing more than for your family to be a part of that.
As the saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child” and I’m honored that you would consider me to play a part in your child’s life.
