Philosophy on exercise:

It is becoming more and more clear that exercise should be an important part of peoples’ daily lives. The hardest aspect of it though is finding the motivation to get out there and do it sometimes. If I ever have a setback, lack of motivation is usually the cause. So, it’s important to set goals when exercising. A short-term, mid-term, and long-term goal should be set to help people maintain focus and motivation for exercising. Another thing people lack is time, myself included. So, it’s important to not only find ways to make time to exercise but also to find workout alternatives that are productive and time efficient.

About myself:

I am currently in my senior year here at UNL trying to get a degree in Education and Human Sciences. I am also pre-Physical Therapy so my long-term

I think that exercise doesn't have to be extremely intense to be beneficial and can be fun! Any sort of physical activity is healthy for the mind and body.

Exercise doesn't have to be a chore. It can be a great stress reliever and fun at the same time. Pushing yourself in the gym can be very rewarding! Exercise is all about mind over matter; If you can mentally prepare yourself to accomplish something, the rest will fall into place.

About myself:

I am interested in all different kinds of sports, such as, football, golf, soccer, and baseball. I was on the golf team in high school where I had been very successful! I love to go out and play a round of golf with friends and family as often as I can. Just about any time free time I have I try and spend that time outdoors. Favorite things would have to be playing sports.

Being an athlete is more than being in shape. It's about being disciplined, focused, motivated, dedicated, and always striving to be bigger, faster, and stronger. These things can be taught in the gym, but how we translate them into daily life is what makes us better than before.

I truly have a passion for seeing people progress and helping them reach their goals and I'm so excited to be working at Campus Rec!
