M.A. Organizational Leadership
I am from a small town in New Jersey where I live with my family on a working hay and llama farm. I am an Athletic Training student at Rowan University whose goal is to inspire and impact lives of the physically active in a positive and healthy way. Seeking inner balance, my colleagues, a client's dedication to transformations all motivate and inspire me. During my training sessions I will invite you to discover your inner needs, and together we will create your personal training journey. Your sessions may take you deep inside or lead you outward to connect with others. I offer guidance in the process of introducing health and wellness to your everyday life.

Hi, I am a proud alumnus of Rowan University. Growing up I was very active in dance, gymnastics and competitive cheerleading. During, my own personal fitness journey I had found support, motivation, and guidance, from the professional staff, fitness instructors and trainers at the Rowan Rec Center. My passion and love for fitness grew from their initial guidance throughout my own personal fitness journey. In an attempt to pay it forward, I hope to be able to motivate, inspire, educate, and empower my clients to believe in themselves, triumph over personal set backs, and support them to push forward towards living a healthier lifestyle. Ultimately, I believe that EVERYONE is capable of doing amazing things if they put forth the needed effort and challenge themselves.

Hi, my name is Alex. Fitness has been a big part of my life since I was in high school and my passion for it only gotten stronger with time. One thing that I really like about training is that it gives me the ability to see progress in people that they sometimes didn't believe was ever possible. It's really uplifting to know that I can help someone and show them that fitness is more than just lifting weights, it can be fun too!

Personal training became something that interested me through my major and through my lovely job at the Rec Center. I also work upstairs as a Fitness Area Assistant and help with program planning. My passion for being active began early on as I was an athlete most of my life before entering college. Basketball, softball, field hockey, soccer.. I've pretty much played it all! Personal training is something I've always wanted to get involved in because it lets me help others reach goals they never thought they could. But most importantly spread the idea that a healthy life is a happy life!

Over the years, exercise and fitness has turned into a passion of mine. There is nothing I love more than the feeling of working out and being healthy. I think everyone should experience the great feeling that exercise and healthy living provides. I want to show people how much fun exercise can be and prove that exercise is for everybody! My experience as an avid exerciser and a Health Promotion/ Fitness Management major has inspired me to want to share my love for exercise and I am excited to have that opportunity as an ACE Certified personal trainer.
