For the past 15 years health and fitness have both been something I have grown to become extremely passionate about. This, however, was not always the case. In fact, both subjects were non-existent from childhood into my early adult life. When I did finally decide to make a change, like so many, it was ultimately the result of a life changing event. In January 2002 my father passed away, at the incredibly young age of 44, from HTN (Hypertension), CVD (Cardiovascular Disease), and Type 2 Diabetes. After dealing with that type of loss, at 19 years old myself, I can honestly say I did not fully understand how preventable his death could have been. A few years later, I found my way into a gym and started to learn more about fitness and nutrition. Over
the next couple of years I took such a strong interest that, in 2009, I
enrolled in school to pursue a degree in the field. Therefore, in 2013, I
graduated from the University of Louisville with a Bachelors degree in
Health and Human Performance, and a concentration in Exercise
Science. It was during the course of my studies that I truly learned how
impactful minor changes in our eating habits, as well as how beneficial
incorporating exercise into our daily habits, can be in preventing the
very diseases that led to my fathers’ passing. While attending UofL I
co-ran their "U-Fit" program for the Health Promotion Department (a
division of Campus Health Services) from 2012 - 2013. This experience
provided my introduction into the world of exercise prescription and
the ability to design a customized fitness plan.
