Our training programs are designed to challenge and inspire individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels.

Overcoming these challenges requires a targeted and personalized approach, emphasizing corrective exercises and fostering a mindset that prioritizes long-term functional well-being over short-term gains. Whether you're a beginner just starting out or an experienced athlete looking to level up your training, we are here to support you every step of the way.

I grew up playing multiple sports from soccer to running track, but had to hang up the jersey and put my athletic ambitions on hold due to college commitments. Within my first year, I began gaining weight, but it was not the good kind of weight, and decided to hire a personal trainer. This is when I was first introduced to lifting and fell in love with strength training. Given all the benefits of weightlifting, I loved the confidence I felt in all areas of my life. I pursued my personal training career at just 19 years old and in 2020, I launched Aspire Higher Training. I have since helped coach individuals in strength training, endurance training, nutrition and injury prevention. I am now devoted to helping individuals gain confidence through strength, improve their overall performance and promote longevity in their training program. This helps my clients stay fully engaged, enjoy the process and above all stay injury free.
