Personal:

My wife of 47 years and I moved here to Guilderland a year and a half ago after I retired from self employment downstate as a contractor for 25 years.  I have had three successful careers in my lifetime. I was a high school Special Education teacher, a Sales Executive and a Wallcovering Installation Contractor. Last year I started my 4th career, as a Personal Trainer. It is a retirement career that I have been preparing for since 2009 when I took my first fitness education course.  It is an avocation that I have wanted to do for many years. Fitness has been my life's passion. I am hoping to share that passion with you!
