Why did you become a personal trainer?
To heal my body and help people. I first left the corporate world to become a Yoga teacher as well as a Zumba instructor and along that journey started experiencing severe repetitive stress injuries in my back and knees. I found a trainer that changed my life, he showed me how to build muscle to protect my joints, correctly activate my core as well as foam roll and release overactive muscles. I slowly started training clients from my group fitness classes and enjoyed the ability to encourage safe movement and maximal results. That was over 8 years ago and I continue to gather knowledge and experience in as many physical, psychological as well as wellness modalities as possible.
What made you open Amrose Fitness Studio?
I wanted to create the studio that I always wanted to be a member of, with full wrap around services that span the scope of modalities needed to truly shift lifestyle behaviors. Amrose Fitness Studio includes my deep commitment to fitness (with personal training and group fitness) as well as mentality training (therapeutic life-coaching and community access) with a sprinkle of beauty care.
What is your go-to exercise and why?
Kettle bell swings are my favorite exercise for several reasons. First and most importantly they single-handedly fixed my knee and back issues as they realigned my pelvic mechanics. Secondly, they I burn a lot of calories in a short period of time. Lastly, I can play around with the variations and keep the movement interesting.
What is your go-to meal and why?
This is hard, my go-to health - conscious meal is steamed green or baked root vegetables paired with pan fried chicken and an arugula side salad with olive oil and lemon. Sounds fancy but it is straight forward to prepare and always hits the spot. My go to less health - conscious meal is probably pizza or pasta, hey I am Italian after all!
What is your favorite song to workout?
Oh man, just one song? I mean I love to work out to pretty much anything with an unrelenting beat, but if I had to pick just one, it would be “A Milli” by Lil Wayne, it’s my personal anthem.
