NASM Certified Personal Trainer
I spent a year and a half studying Physical Education and Coaching at UWSP before leaving to pursue a career as a Fitness Professional. I got certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and began training in 2014. My athletic background stems from a love for playing and coaching basketball.

ACSM Personal Trainer
Tad is a personal trainer at Western Racquet & Fitness Club and is something of a "Jack of all trades". He has a personal background in fitness that includes long-distance running, powerlifting, bodybuilding, yoga, boxing, and cardio-kickboxing. He previously studied exercise science and kinesiology near Milwaukee, where his training career began. After graduating from Carroll University, he came back home to Green Bay to pursue a second degree in nutrition and dietetics. Tad's philosophy is "healthiness" and "happiness" are synonymous. Considering this, everyone has different needs in their approach to fitness, but the ultimate goal for everyone is to feel better physically and emotionally. This belief is what guides his style of delivering consistently new, fun, and engaging programs for every personal training session and group fitness class he designs.
