Coach Intro

I graduated from Texas State University in 2017 with a Bachelors's in Exercise & Sports Science and a concentration in Physical Therapy. After tearing my ACL playing high school soccer I developed a passion for understanding anatomy, exercise physiology, and injury rehab. I’m currently pursuing my passion as a Class of 2023 doctoral student in Texas State University’s Physical Therapy Program. I’ve always loved exercising and playing sports. When our Owners Nnamdi & Amanda introduced me to Functional Fitness in 2015 I was inspired to reach new levels of strength & conditioning. My favorite thing about Functional Fitness is having continual opportunities to learn new skills and master challenging movements. The primary goal for myself & every athlete I coach is long-term health, wellness, and fitness. I became a coach because I want to connect Fitness and Physical Therapy. I desire to educate and resource people with the tools to have better health over a lifetime.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

My heart as a coach is to encourage, support, celebrate, and inspire my athletes on their life-long fitness journey. No matter your exercise background or experience, I will create a safe environment where you can execute complex movements with proper technique. I’m all about bringing fun to fitness! I will continually challenge and equip you to reach the next levels of fitness. My biggest concerns are your safety and a positive athlete experience. At OBK you will grow in community with myself, other OBK coaches, and fellow athletes.
