We all know exercise is key to longevity and health and wellness. But how many of us actually exercise on a regular basis? How many of us choose to binge watch our favorite TV shows instead of hit the gym? Whether we admit it or not, physical fitness is hard work. And most of us would rather not work that hard in our free time.

If this is your mindset, then you need a personal trainer like you need the air you breathe — desperately. A personal trainer is more than someone who develops a fitness routine and makes you do it (that is part of the job). A personal trainer is your accountability partner in your life-long journey of health and wellness. A personal trainer is your guide to nutrition and how you can use nutrition in your workout routine to maximize results. Most importantly, a personal trainer is just that: personal. They devote all of their attention to you during your session. How many other people in your life do?

  • Accountability. By far, this is the most important piece of the physical fitness puzzle. When you have an appointment with a personal trainer at our gym in San Diego, you’re going to show up if for no other reason than you’re paying for it. You have no excuse to fall back on. Someone is waiting on you, and you don’t want to let them down.
  • A physical fitness program tailored to you. Not all fitness programs are created the same. Mixed martial arts might not be for the person who loves yoga. Plus, the results will be vastly different if you’re lifting heavy weights versus doing low-weight repetitions. When you sign up for Balanced Fitness & Health’s personal training program, we’ll sit down with you and evaluate your fitness and health goals, your current level of fitness, and where you want to be in the future. Then we’ll set a plan to achieve the results you are seeking.

My mom was a division one all American high diver, and my dad was a gymnast, and professional ski acrobat. So needless to say, movement, athletics, and a healthy lifestyle were part of the household culture for as long as I can remember. I’ve been a lifelong athlete, and have had a professional career in both snowboarding, and mixed martial arts. I’m currently 31 years old and have never been injured in either my weight lifting or athletic career. This is because I have learned not only how to work hard, but how to work safe and smart. I’m a N.A.S.M certified personal trainer, and love sharing my knowledge to help people reach their goals.

Born on August 3, 1986 in San Diego, Ca. I grew up in Chula Vista in a family of 5, me being the middle child. During my high school years I was in cross country and track with a few of my friends. After graduating from high school, I went to San Diego City College, layer transferring to SDSU. In May 2015, I graduated with a bachelors in Business Management.

In 2011, I was exposed to my first kettlebell workout and I was automatically intrigued. The design of the workouts and the results I was noticing was just amazing. A few years later I decided to start training for the instructors certification. In February 2014, I attended my Strong First Instructors Certification and passed. In 2015, I took my Strong First Level 2 Certification and passed. Lastly, in January 2016, took my Strong First Body Weight Certification and passed with he completion of a one arm push-up. Last but not least, in 2017, I completed my barbell certification. Currently I’m working towards completing my Nutritional Certification.

Every year I set a goal, every year I accomplish my goal no matter what it takes. I Never doubt my capabilities, I always believe in myself. Believing in myself is the reason I am where I am today.
