I’m Barrett and I am currently at Cleveland State for a degree in Exercise Science. Growing up I played a variety of sports including hockey, cross country, and baseball which I played in college. As of the last 5 years, my training interests have led me to Crossfit, Olympic Weightlifting, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Megaformer training. I’ve been involved with coaching, personal training and group instruction for over 5 years. Though I love the classic style of weight training, my favorite thing to work with clients on is movement quality, such as joint range of motion, end range strength, and body weight movements that are used in daily life!
