I'm a driven, hard-working individual. I've been working in the fitness field as a trainer for over 3 years now.. I'm currently training at a one on one private fitness studio and I'm hoping to eventually open up my own studio. Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy working out and staying in shape along with having that positive impact on others. Personal training seemed to be a good career that combined everything into one. I recently became more serious about bodybuilding as well. It's been tough giving up those three bowls of cereal at night.
I attended Kenyon College initially before transferring. I was originally planning on becoming a math teacher, but ended up switching to personal training. Unfortunately, Calculus C steered me away from it. The teacher in me hasn't gone away completely. I tutor kids in middle school math when I have the time. Working with kids has always been something that I've enjoyed doing. There's nothing like having that positive impact on others. However, sometimes I can be a little too selfless. This whole writing about yourself doesn't keep you modest, does it?
Family and friends are big priorities for me as well. My brother and I have always been close. He has diabetes and is an inspiration to me everyday. As weird as it sounds, I think the big age difference has made us closer.
I'd definitely like to travel more considering I've never been on an airplane, sad I know. In my free time, I volunteer when I can. I'm also a huge sports fan, especially baseball which I played back in school. I cheer on all my Cleveland teams and enjoy going to the games when I can. I tend to yell at the tv a little too much when the games are on. I do a little 180.
I try to take advantage of what Cleveland has to offer, be it museums, restaurants, improv and comedy clubs, the list is endless. I also sketch in my free time. I haven't been able to as much as before, but it's always helpful to clear my mind.
I enjoy life to the fullest and always go by the saying "Carpe Diem, Seize the Day." Life's too short to worry about the little things. I try to make the most out of every situation and appreciate good conversation. I enjoy letting loose, but also know when to be serious. Sarcasm comes too easily for me and I guess you could say I have a dry sense of humor. You could call me that typical nice guy with a little edge to him. Let's face it, the saying 'nice guys finish last' , unfortunately, has a little truth to it. I'd consider myself very down to earth, selfless, and understanding.
I'm looking for someone with these same qualities. Someone that can challenge me and complement me. Honesty is a must. If you're a sports fan, major brownie points. We can share the blood pressure pills during the Browns games.
Life is a crazy experience and I'm hoping to find someone I can eventually share the ride with.
