As a trainer, my primary goal is to help people to not only achieve their physical goals, but create a better mental and emotional state that will impact their everyday lives. I am currently 23 years old, I graduated from Fulton High School in 2015, which is where my love for fitness and impacting the lives of others began, and later graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Western Illinois University. As an athlete, it was crucial that I created a body able to compete with other players. Following high school, I landed my first job as a trainer at Anytime Fitness in Clinton, Iowa where I picked up a majority of my knowledge of exercise and nutrition and became certified. While I was an employee at Anytime Fitness, a fellow trainer and I started a boot camp ministry at Clinton Church of Christ. We would create a killer workout, and follow up with a motivational message. This was truly the start to KT3. When the opportunity arose to rent a building and start our own business, we took it up. Although my partner is now in the Navy, KT3 continues to thrive and lives continue to be changed each and every day while giving all of the glory to God.
I am a Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach. I pursued my education through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to further expand my knowledge of food and nutrition. I wanted to understand not only what food does to our entire body but also how the environment around us impacts our bodies as well. I wasn’t expecting everything this program actually gave me. It isn't just about nutrition. It is about our whole body, mind, and spirit.
This literally changed my life at a time that I needed it and didn’t even realize. I became passionate about health, complete health. IIN provided me a well-rounded education program that covered over 100 dietary theories, however, the most important lesson I learned is that a one-size fit all approach really doesn’t work when it comes to health and wellness and physical fitness. What works for one person could potentially be harmful to another. As a health coach and personal trainer, my focus is on guiding each client in making the best decisions to lead them to a path of health and wellness.

Hey guys! I am a certified personal trainer, and my main goal is to help you achieve your physical and mental goals, while building relationships with each of you. Fitness is more than just a hobby to me; It is my passion. This lifestyle that transpired through fitness started for me at the end of my junior year of high school. I graduated from Fulton High School in the class of 2019 and am currently a sophomore in college at Clinton Community College. I am studying to get my associates degree in physical science and then going to go to a university for another two years to get my bachelor’s degree in exercise science. I’ve learned a couple things so far through fitness and training: fitness does not just improve your physicality, but also improves your mental state and emotional state by using it to relieve stress and gain energy and mental clarity. The best thing fitness has done for me is created an unimaginable amount of connections with people that I never would have met if it wasn’t for KT3. KT3 provides such a positive, welcoming atmosphere that is perfect for any person regardless of your fitness level!
My love for exercise started at a young age. I have always been involved in sports. My interest in lifting weights and nutrition began when I realized my collegiate basketball career was coming to an end after my Sophomore year of college. Much like the basketball court, the gym became my new escape from the day-to-day grind that consumes us. I met Kyle back when he was running the boot camp ministry at Clinton Church of Christ. I was intrigued by his desire to help others through fitness. This is a big part of why I now share that same interest. At that time, I worked as a manager of a nutrition store, which is what I can contribute the vast majority of my knowledge in nutrition/supplementation. I was in this position while completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Sports and Recreation Management from Ashford University. My main focus at KT3 is to help the individuals I train safely and successfully build their desired physique, so they will feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin.
I’m thrilled to be back in my hometown serving our community through fitness and faith! I graduated in 2008 as a student/athlete at Monmouth College studying Business Administration and playing volleyball. After college, I worked as a credit advisor in Chicago. It didn’t take me long to realize my passion for fitness and helping people grow personally could be combined (and I was not meant to sit at a desk all day!) I got engaged, moved back to Fulton, and opened my gym (Fit Assist) all in 1 year. It's been a wild, fun, crazy, blessed ride ever since. After 6 years of training at Fit Assist and giving birth to two beautiful boys, God divinely answered my prayer to spend more time at home with my sons while continuing my
passion for fitness. Kyle and I teamed up and moved into the current location of KT3. I truly love coming alongside so many wonderful people and helping them reach their fitness goals. It is also my hope to help people grow spiritually and embrace the love of Jesus Christ in their lives. Healthy mind + healthy body = HAPPY LIFE!
(Fit Assist Owner/Trainer)
I am a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) and USAW-Level 1 certified. I have a Master’s of Science degree in Exercise Physiology with emphasis in Strength and Conditioning from Carroll University. I have trained many different levels of individuals ranging from mobility problems, chronic medical issues to high school, division III, and Division I athletes at University ofmWisconsin-Madison. Working with a wide range of individuals has allowed me to gain extensive knowledge to proper programming and various training techniques.
Fitness has always been a part of my life since high school. I was a three sport athlete growing up. While in high school I was not taught how to properly take care of my body and mind. This lead to physical and mental injuries that I still carry with me today. This is where my passion for fitness derived from. I want to ensure that those I work with are in a positive environment that allows them to succeed. I focus on training each person as a whole with emphasis on state of mind, nutrition, daily habits, and of course exercise. Everyone is unique in what they need and no two clients are programed the same. With me you get more than just a coach. You get someone who genuinely cares for your wellbeing and wants to see you prosper. I believe in building a strong foundation of positive mind set, nutrition, consistency,
proper technique, and progression will allow you to achieve your fitness goals.
