What is your proudest fitness accomplishment?: My proudest fitness accomplishment was when I was training for strongman competition and places 2nd for the State of R.I. (about 7 years ago).

Best thing about living in RI: The best thing about living in R.I. are the people and the ocean (nice to run in the area I live). We have several local businesses and I have lived in other cities to tell you there is nothing better than local. Especially when it comes to food. I enjoy the weather too, I’m a four season kind of person.

One thing people don’t know about you: Actually people don’t know that I’m shy even though I am a professional arm wrestler. They assume I’m tough, I’m just a big teddy bear. (lol)

Favorite quote: “Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” John F. Kennedy

Fitness tip for RI Fit Readers: My biggest and strongest tip is CONSISTANCY no matter what level you are at!!!!!
