"All our dreams can come
true, if we have the
courage to pursue them."
- Walt Disney
As a personal trainer and the owner of Smokiní Hot Bod, I absolutely love my job! I am able to wake up every morning and motivate clients of all ages, shapes and sizes, and from every walk of life to be the very best they can be. Not only physically, but mentally as well. It has always been my belief that your body and mind should be equally strong. I decided to become a personal trainer shortly after I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. Working as an engineer had its benefits, but I never got to enjoy the close relationships that I do now. Working with others and helping them achieve their goals is a very rewarding experience.
Part of what makes being a trainer so great is that I can personally relate to each client's struggle with getting in shape. Throughout my childhood and into early adulthood, I was overweight, and unmotivated to change. After years of trying different workouts and fad diets I finally developed an exercise program that made my body look the way I wanted and gave me confidence and energy. I felt better then I could ever remember feeling and I was truly happy with myself for the first time.
My own experience with getting in shape is what motivated me to satart training others. I wanted to have a positive impact on other people's lives. I wanted to encourage people to once and for all reach their physical fitness goals, just like I had. My philosophy about reaching these goals is different from many other personal trainers. I believe that there is much more to the job then just designing workouts and helping clients perform them properly, itís about inspiring others to fall in love with their bodies and learn how to live healthy and happy lives. Itís about motivating individuals to push themselves to new heights and challenge their bodies and minds in ways they have never done before. Itís about making a decision to truly change for the better and sticking to it no matter what! I for one know that this isnít always easy, but the feelings of accomplishment and self-respect are beyond anything else you will ever feel. And I will be there with you every step of the way.
