Meet the Team
Owner, Master Trainer
I'm a certified personal trainer and owner of Thrive Fitness in Ann Arbor, MI. In November 2012, I opened Thrive Fitness when I was 22 years old. I obtained my national certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and my certification as a corrective exercise specialist in 2008. Since then, I've enthusiastically coached my clients towards achieving their fitness and life goals. I specialize in motivating people and pushing them to reach their full potential, exercise programming, nutritional counseling, assisted stretching, and corrective exercise. I'm most passionate about helping people, especially through personal training, health/wellness coaching, and inspiring others to reach their goals efficiently and successfully.
I make it a priority to help my clients set achievable goals, and educate them on the importance of strength training, cardiovascular health, flexibility and nutrition. I also place special emphasis on using strength training and assisted stretching to resolve muscular imbalances in problem areas such as the rotator cuff, lower back, hips, knees and ankles.
I have always been an athlete growing up and I have a huge passion for sports. My top sports are Wrestling, Boxing, Submission Wrestling, Football, and I currently compete as a NPC Men's Physique competitor.
