I always believe the harder you work, the stronger you become. Growing up in Philadelphia, PA, I always enjoyed being active by running track and cross country, playing baseball, football, and basketball. After earning a college basketball scholarship, I continued to play professionally overseas. Through my experience as a Division 1 player along with training as an elite athlete at the professional level, I discovered my true passion for basketball and physical fitness.
When my journey as a professional basketball player ended in 2011, I began focusing on my love for helping others realize their true potential in order to achieve success. My vast experience working with professional athletes, celebrities, youth
and working adults provided me with extensive knowledge to custom-tailor a fitness program for each client. I enjoy going through the process with everyone and am ecstatic when they achieve success in all aspects of their life! Whether you have sport-specific or personal fitness goals, I welcome you to join the neighborhood.
