Hey there! Sam here! I’m just your average Testing & Optimization Analyst. It’s a long title, but it means I swim through a sea of numbers all day. Am I a fitness fanatic? No way. Just trying to find a hack or two to have fun and stay healthy.


Hi I’m Aaron. I’ve been a certified personal trainer for over 6 years. I was a high school and collegiate athlete and now I enjoy training people who want to positively impact their lives through healthy habits and exercise. I’m into fishing, obstacle course racing and I have a thing for nerdy girls. 😉
