Why Did I Become a Personal Trainer?
In 1998, while in the U.S. Air Force, I trained a small team of people, and myself, to ride the annual Multiple Sclerosis 150 mile charity bike ride. I found the experience of trying new training methods and experimenting with diet and athletic performance fascinating. I knew from then on that I wanted to somehow pursue athletics and nutrition as a career.
A Little About Me:
After leaving the Air Force I moved to Aarhus, Denmark and started my degree in Global Health and Nutrition at VIA University. While working on my degree I started personal training and knew from my first session with my first client that I had made the right choice with my career path.
In the beginning of 2015 my family and I relocated back to the United States where I received my ISSA Certified Fitness Trainer Certification and immediately started personal training.
Since I began personal training I have had clients with a wide array of goals. I enjoy training people with a goal of winning a marathon as much as I enjoy training someone who wants to lose 100 pounds. Everyone’s goals are just as important to me and I take each client equally serious.
I have 2 young boys, Noah and Benjamin, and I married to a wonderful woman named Mette who is a physician. If I am not spending time with my family I enjoy cooking, training with kettlebells, weight lifting, running and mountainbiking.
