Your Name

Personal Trainer, Fitness Assistant, Leader.

Virginia Beach, VA


I have been working within the fitness field for a little over three and a half years and recently obtained my Health Fitness Specialist certification through American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). While working as a Fitness Assistant for Navy MWR, I have had several opportunities to perform lifestyle health assessments, while educating clients on their health. I have worked with all age groups, but I particularly enjoy working with children. This passion has carried over into the fitness aspect where I worked as a research lead for Project MENTOR, which was a program designed to help obese adolescents. I am an extremely active and outgoing person and can keep a group focused, yet enthusiastic. In addition to this, I enjoy helping others and serving as a mentor or role model to clients, co-workers, and friends. I have experience in performing administrative work, scheduling and supervising staff, conducting training programs, and implementing a variety of programs to assure optimal utilization of a facility. I approach my work with a high level of initiative, reliability, empathy and determination. I have outstanding communication skills and work well autonomously and in team environments. I am organized, creative and have strong written as well as verbal communication skills.
