ACE Certified/ PEAK Pilates Level 1 Certified, B.S. Exercise Science

​When people ask me where I'm from, it's always a long answer. I moved seven times before the end of high school, have lived in Europe for 13 years, and have an American/Hungarian background. I grew up playing soccer and became especially interested in fitness in middle school when I couldn't do a pull-up in front of my gym class. It really frustrated me that I couldn't do one so I set my sights on being able to crank out at least 3 by the end of 8th grade. With a lot of trial and error and hard work I was able to get 6 pull-ups by the end of that year.

I believe my life until now has had a huge impact on my views in fitness. I've seen and heard different perspectives from around the world and keep a very open mind when it comes to fitness. I enjoy doing pilates, yoga, kettlebell training, calisthenics, resistance training and even strongman training to name a few. Due to my interests, I believe I can provide some of the most unique workouts you'll have with a trainer. I'm a firm believer of helping my clients master the fundamental exercises before progressing to more advanced variations.

Helping people become healthier, fitter versions of themselves and being a part of their journey to unlocking their potential is a passion of mine. Before you begin a fitness regimen with me, ask yourself this question: "Did the Egyptians build their pyramids from the top piece first?"

B.S. Exercise Science

I first became interested in strength and conditioning in high school, which sparked my passion for training and inspired me to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. I know how it feels to be physically unable to do the things you want to, and how hard of a process it is to get started and stick with a training program! That was me when I first started, and now it’s my turn to help others on their fitness journeys. 

I earned my Bachelor’s in Exercise Science, continued on for a Master’s in Health, Physical Activity, and Chronic Disease to broaden my ability of promoting the health benefits of exercise for all fitness levels. During my time as an undergrad and grad student at the University of Pittsburgh, I’ve had the opportunity of interning in the strength and conditioning field, corporate wellness, sports performance, and cardiac rehab.  These experiences were so helpful in my development as a coach where I’ve learned how to adapt training styles for all types of people.

You can find me at PFP as a trainer and as an athlete! I’m a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and a competitive weightlifter.  Fitness has had such a positive impact on my life and I am passionate about sharing that opportunity with others! I’m a firm believer that everyone can achieve a healthy lifestyle. My motto is “sit less, move more”!
