Personal Training





Do you have everything it takes to get in shape but lack Motivation?

Are you someone that needs strong personal motivation, such as a training partner counting on you to get to the gym each day? Would you get more from your workouts if someone took you through every exercise every time you came to work out? Are you the type of person that just doesn’t want to think when you’re at the gym and would do better in your workouts if someone motivated and guided you through every step from the time you got to the gym until you went home? If the answer is YES then you may be perfect for the YMCAs’ one-on-one coaching or personal training program!


Achieve your fitness goals through training sessions and coaching from a certified personal trainer.


Personal training involves one or more regular training sessions designed to help you achieve your fitness goals. Your certified personal trainer will work with you and your schedule to develop a personalized fitness program.

YMCA Certified Personal Trainer

I have just recently settled back in Alaska after living the last five years in various states partaking in my collegiate basketball career. My background in sports has opened my eyes to many things, one in particular is that fitness should have a role in everyone’s life. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best strength and conditioning coaches in basketball during my playing career, and in doing so I have gathered a great deal of knowledge in different forms of weight and cardiovascular training. I have coached youth sports teams as well as hosting athletic camps.
