Certified Personal Trainer

Certified Sports Nutritionist

I am driven by the achievements of my clients.  I take pride in the progress we make together on your fitness journey.


I served 10 years as a hospital corpsman in the US Navy.  I cannot think of a better place to learn the discipline and motivational skills needed to be successful as a personal trainer.  I furthered my personal development by working at a cardiac rehab center where I helped transplant patients during their recovery.  While specializing in injury rehab, I worked with many athletes on the Rochester Americans, a professional hockey team, the Rochester Red Wings, a minor league baseball team, and the Rochester Rhinos, a professional soccer team.  After moving back to my home state of CT, I worked at the Middlesex YMCA as a personal trainer and co-coordinator of the Livestrong program.

Let me help you overcome the physical and mental limitations we set for ourselves. 


With I Got You! Fitness on your side, you will be living life on your terms!

Certified Personal Trainer

Hi! My goal is to bring positive changes to your life through fitness, with the knowledge I have gained over the years.  

I want to provide encouragement and insight while helping you to improve your body and your mind.  I have been involved and have trained in many different facets of athletics.  My specialties include increasing cardiovascular fitness, core strength gain, balance improvement and flexibility enhancement. 

Exercise is not easy, it is harder than laying down.  That's why I am here to bring you fun, enthusiastic, encouraging and energetic training sessions.  I'm here to be with you step by step through our journey to reach your goals. 


Don't Stop Moving!

"As we try to find our balance in this eventful year, we became more disciplined.  Now it's time to move and leave the past behind.  Hopefully, picking the right trail on to bigger and better things." Naji Chester-Payne
