Why I do what I do:Everyone should have the opportunity to live life and perform to the fullest. The strength and conditioning coach had the biggest opportunity for lifestyle change in the health profession. At Strive we interact with clients on a daily basis. We are able to create conversations about movement, strength, mobility, power, stress, sleep, and nutrition. We help adults and athletes create health and performance awareness and empower them to come closer to the life they want. Whether the goal is to ease into old age gracefully or compete on the national or world stage, we are able to be part of theprocess to get them there. It excites me daily to see people from all walks of life achieve thins at Strive they didn’t think possible.
