I am a personal trainer at the Grafton Form & Fitness location. I work with the Parisi Speed School athletes as a strength and speed coach as well. Fitness has been a part of my life since I was little, so it was only a short time to figure out what I wanted to do with my future. In high school I was a two sport athlete; volleyball and basketball.
I then went on to play basketball at Lakeland college, but soon transferred to University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I gain the motivation by watching my clients achieve their goals and get the results they truly deserve. I believe in designing safe, fun, and effective workouts that will guarantee results.

I enjoy designing and implementing programs for those who desire to improve their athletic performance, improve their activities of daily living, or even those who just want to look good for the beach. I’ve competed in collegiate and club sports, and trained for strength/power and bodybuilding alike. I also havepractical experience in training the elderly population.
I’ve completed 8 internships while getting a 4 year B.S. Degree — half of which have consisted of working in the Lakeland University Exercise Science Laboratory performing undergraduate research on resistance training, plyometrics, and rehabilitation.
I have spent most of my life playing hockey and running track. I received my NASM CPT during school and started training in 2018. I graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology and am currently pursuing my master’s in Kinesiology. My favorite food must be ice cream. Currently my workouts kind of change all the time but if I had to pick one, I would choose Olympic lifting. There is always something to improve upon. The best song for me would be general by dispatch.
I like to build computers and work on cars whenever I am not working out.

I have been in a health and fitness setting for most of my life. Playing 3 sports through high school, up to college, and my parents running their own fitness facility for over 10 years, it was almost inevitable that I would become passionate about making a career out of the exercise science field. That being said, I have had very rewarding experiences working with the general population who want to shed a few pounds, improve their overall quality of life, move around pain free again, or improve their physique, as well as, working with athletes who want to become more successful in their sport.

Fitness has always been important to me. Throughout my childhood it was my dad that got me moving. Whether it was mowing the lawn, going for long hikes or bike rides, he was the one who inspired me to be where I am today. Sometimes we need a push from another person to maintain our drive and get us on our feet each day. Today, I continue the hobbies that got me moving. I love to waterski, barefoot ski, hike and work out to maintain my overall fitness.
I want to be the one to inspire you like my dad did me. I want to be the one to push YOU. As your personal trianer, I will be here to motivate and educate you to be successful. From flexibility and core strength to functional training and bootcamps, I will help you achieve YOUR goals. Overall health and well-being require dedication and commitment. It's a lifestyle.
After attending a four-year program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, I love that I continue to learn while I teach others. With a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (the study of human movement sciences), it is rewarding to be able to apply my knowlege and help others reap the rewards.

Exercise has always been a part of my life and I'd love to make it part of YOURS! From soccer and ice hockey in high school and college, to yoga and Tai Chi later on, I've never stopped moving. I love to work out, and I want all of my clients to feel what it's like to have MORE energy, MORE strength and MORE flexibility at any age. I will help you achieve this with functional exercises, strength training and plenty of core and balance moves. I always try to keep the workouts challenging and fun. I am an NASM certified personal trainer.
In addition to training, I work out and I still play ice hockey. When I'm not running or skating around, I may be found cooking, reading or just hanging out with my husband and three children.
I found my passion for health and fitness as an undergraduate studying Kinesiology. Growing up I didn't participate in many sports, but as a college student I dove into a variety of them such as martial arts, cycling and competitive speed skating. My Kinesiology degree and experience with different sports taught me the importance of technique and proper form to benefit from a regular training schedule. My training style allows me to help others understand their bodies so that they maximize their workouts without the risk of injury. Whether you're training for a competitive sport or simply interested in improving your strength and wellness, my focus on teaching body awareness alongside strength and conditioning will help you reach you goals.

Exercise IS for everyone. No, it is not easy, if it were, everyone would be healthy and happy. But it's not impossible, or no one would be. Exercise is not limited to lifting weights or running on a treadmill for hours, options for exercise are limitless. It is structured play and can be fun! I have a degree in Kinesiology and Psychology, with a focus on Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, and Nutrition. I am also an ACSM certified personal trainer. I have 3 years of personal, group, and virtual training. Long story short I can confidently say I know what I am doing. Beyond the science, my philosophy of exercise is that it can and will be life changing if you let it. My goal as a trainer is to not only be an example of a life changing transformation, but also teach you to be your own trainer.
I will help you achieve your goals and teach you how to train yourself along the way. My goal is not to be a need for you to excel, but a luxury to go beyond what you can do on your own. Anything is better than nothing, future you will thank you.

Health, fitness, and overall wellness have been my focus for the past seven years, but fitness has been a huge part of my life since I was very young.
It all started with my mom and dad instilling the joy of sports into mine and my brothers’ lives. Around six or seven years old, my brother Erik and I began to see the importance of strength and fitness and how it directly applied to how we performed in sports. We even created our own (very basic) workout program consisting of mostly pushups, pullups, situps, running, and hundreds of bicep curls. Before we knew it, we were maxing out some of our school’s physical fitness tests. Comical, yet amazing to reflect on how far back fitness and health goes for me! Fast forward 12 years and Erik introduced me to the sport of CrossFit.
This sparked a fire inside of me that spurred a whirlwind of fascination in health and wellness. That fire in my heart constantly pushes me to pursue excellence in everything I do, especially nutrition, mental resilience, and fitness. With all of that said, these reasons are exactly why I am SO excited to be a trainer and coach at Form and Fitness, surrounded by an amazing team of elite-level trainers, coaches, therapists, and staff.
Prioritizing health and fitness improved my life to levels I did not know existed. Now, it is my dream to help as many people as I possibly can; showing and leading by example, how dialing in nutrition and exercise can produce the best version of yourself.
See you out there!
Parisi Speed School - Performance Coach
The health and wellness field has always been of interest of mine dating back to Freshman year of High school. I joined my first gym in 1998 where I began lifting weights and became interested in how the human body works.
While I have been working out regularly since then, I actually began my fitness career working as a Membership Lead at the front desk in 2017. I loved my experience at the desk as it gave me an opportunity to motivate, encourage, and inspire new and existing members.
Realizing my love for fitness and motivating people, I knew it was time to further my career by becoming a Personal Trainer. I am proud to say I am now an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, and cannot wait to change your life. My areas of expertise include: weight-loss, muscle hypertrophy, functional fitness, and nutrition.

Fitness became a passion for me once I finally conquered my exercise-induced asthma. After 23 years of having that as a crutch, even in my everyday life, I dedicated myself to getting it under control.
After that, everything else followed suit; my health became a priority as well as helping others reach their goals. I make it a goal not only for people to have a challenging workout, but also to make my training sessions as fun and entertaining as possible. I enjoy running Spartan Races with my wife, who is a Zumba instructor here at Form and Fitness.
I'm an actor, so leading groups through exercise is as enthralling to me as being on stage in the spotlight!
NASM Certified Personal Trainer
Fitness is actually fairly new to me. I always played sports but never for the fitness or lifting aspect of it. I officially got into working out about 3 years ago but fell in love with it in 2020 during the shutdown. Working out gave me something to do but it also made me feel happy and brought me a confidence I hadn't felt before. That's what I want for other people! I want to create an environment where people feel confident and heard by their trainer.
Personal training doesn't feel like a job to me. I come into the gym happy to work with people and help them achieve their goals!
