Russia-born Houston raised. FAQ answered: Yes, I speak Russian. My favorite thing to do as a coach is to push people to do the things that they think they can’t. And the most rewarding thing is watching them complete it and be so proud and confident of themselves. And this goes for anything in someone’s fitness journey. Whether it is picking up a heavier weight or finally getting the hang of meal prepping. I have a B.S. in Exercise Science, and I am a certified personal trainer through the ISSA and the National Personal Training Institute.
