B.S. in Health and Human Performance
ACE Certified Personal Trainer
I am the Fitness Director at Prairie Life Fitness in West Des Moines. In addition to managing the fitness center, I work as a Personal Trainer. My clientele ranges from young athletes to the elderly with disabilities.
I attended Iowa State University and earned my degree in Health and Human Performance with an emphasis on fitness management. While at ISU, I took many classes which focused on the relationship between biomechanics and sport-specific training. Some other classes included Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, and Sport Psychology.
While at ISU, I worked as a personal trainer through the University at the Leid Recreational Center as well as at a local fitness club. Through personal training, I have been able to work with clients from all populations. I have trained athletes from age 6 to age 26 to improve speed, power, agility, and explosiveness. I believe that with the proper training, dedication, and hard work; an average athlete can become an elite athlete!!
