My 1st year at Conker Fitness marks my 7th year as a personal trainer/strength coach. My interest in fitness however, began many years before this. Throughout my childhood I played an array of sports year round, with lacrosse and football being my main focus.

After receiving a scholarship to play lacrosse in the states for the final year of my high school career, I made the choice to pursue lacrosse. It was there when I was officially introduced to strength training. I took a two year program that excelled my level of play and personal fitness knowledge tremendously.

From there, I was drafted to the National Lacrosse League (NLL) to play for the Toronto Rock where I have spent the last 6 years playing. I attribute much of my success in this sport to strength and injury prevention training. 

I pride myself in being able to relate to my clients needs and personal goals through my own experiences. Throughout my career I have had to battle and rehabilitate myself through two knee reconstruction surgeries, along with many other injuries. Going through these injuries has made me a better trainer today, and helped me coach my clients through their ailing injuries from knees to back or hips. Whether its weight loss, sport specific, injury pain or prevention, I am confident my extensive background and wealth of knowledge will help you achieve your goals just as I have mine!
