My Story


 When I was old enough to understand that I was gay, I began to struggle with my own masculinity and what it meant. By the time high school hit, fitness became my life line and reinvented the way I cared for myself, and for others. I started working as a personal trainer in college and fell in love with transforming people for the better. When I graduated, I wanted to keep in touch with clients I had helped who I'd no longer see face-to-face, and PappsFitness was created!  My specialities include strength and conditioning, functional movement patterns, dynamic cardiovascular movements (never use a treadmill again!), and overall well-being!
