About John

John's passion for exercise and nutrition is evident by his educational pursuits. Having a B.S. in Exercise Science and a M.S. in Food and Nutrition has allowed him to obtain a solid knowledgeable foundation. While working as a Graduate Assistant, much of his time was focused on obesity research. He enjoys applying learned scientific principles and theories to his life, as well as sharing this knowledge with others in order to allow for optimal training.

John was certified in 2009 and has since worked with a broad range of clientele. “The greatest joy I get from personal training is when my clients achieve personal goals that they never believed were attainable”, says John. His specialty utilizes resistance training and nutrition in order to promote strength, conditioning, and physique enhancement.
