Fitness and exercise have always been a passion for Monte. Throughout high school, he participated in many sports and weight training. In college, he played rugby at the University of Iowa. Monte’s adult fitness interests have included running marathons, half-marathons, strength training, and yoga.
As Monte started training others, he knew assisting others to become strong and reach their fitness goals was his calling. He has since become certified as a personal trainer and functional movement specialist. His goals as a trainer are to share his knowledge and enthusiasm to assist clients in maximizing their fitness and improving their quality of life. His special interest is in helping middle-aged people like himself reach their fitness goals while making strength training an integral part of their personal fitness and wellness program.
