My passion for functional fitness was ignited in late 2007 and its fire has been fueled by a passion for fitness ever since. I attained my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at CSULB just prior to moving to the Santa Clarita Valley. I strive to show that Functional Fitness and strength training – at their core and elements – are meant for everyone.

The program that I have set for Face Your Fears Athletics is periodized and structured with a purpose. I strive to be different in my programming approach than other gyms and reach to every source of training information I can to ensure what I am putting in place is the best I can offer. My facility proudly serves Santa Clarita, Saugus, Newhall and Valencia athletes and is meant for beginners and experienced individuals alike.
