After spending more than 7 years away from Wisconsin, having lived in states ranging from Arizona to Maryland, A.J. returned to his home state in 2021. He received his Personal Training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM); as well as a Nutrition Coach Certification and Weight Loss Specialist, also through NASM.
After initially receiving these certifications to enhance his personal knowledge, he wanted to direct that passion to helping others achieve their own goals toward total-body health. With professional experience in mentorship and personal development, he has acquired a keen eye for helping others see the best in themselves all while encouraging them to face challenges with both patience and enthusiasm. With that he trains his clients to approach their health and fitness journey one session at a time, while still reinforcing the importance of long-term goals. ‘
From his own experience both with weight loss and physical rehabilitation, he understands the ups and downs that come with achieving one’s health and wellness goals; and will approach his work with you empathetically, with honesty, and with encouragement. When he is not in the gym you can find him engaged in his full-time career in software development, working on personal technology projects, golfing, or spending time with his Golden Retriever Macy.
