“My life changing coach!”

Super proud of my trainer for following his dream and opening up his own personal training gym/ yoga studio. I would not be the skater or athlete I am today without you pushing me beyond what I thought were my limits. You made me stretch even though I thought my limbs were separating from my body. What other trainer would not let you leave for college until you could do 10 pull ups (even though I might not be able to anymore). When you started training me, I remember you said I wouldn’t be able to wear skinny jeans anymore, even though that was an over exaggeration, it completely freaked me out. It took a while but you made me appreciate being athletic and being strong. Now I can’t imagine not having muscles. I know I was that crazy, giggly, hyperactive student you never asked for, but I know you are super proud of me. I wouldn’t have it any other way. So here is to my life changing coach!
