Business Owner, New Age Sports

About

I am the owner of New Age Sports Performance. I specialize in training youth athletes and helping them achieve their future goals. My company is based out of Warminster, PA in Bucks County.

Every day I help young athletes play their sport in college or to continue with their fitness journey once their athletic career has ended. I was always passionate about fitness and strength training, but never had anyone to guide me in the right direction when I was younger. My goal is to give my clients the guidance to reach their potential athletically while becoming a better person each day.

Impact of Ursinus

At Ursinus, I was able to learn all the key concepts of anatomy and physiology while being able to explain it to individuals who might not be as knowledgeable in that field. Playing baseball at Ursinus allowed me to teach some of my teammates different lifting techniques and motivate them in ways that made our whole team better. All the Health and Exercise Physiology professors come from different backgrounds which allows them to share their experiences and create a diverse learning environment. Dr. Carpenter was a huge part of where I am today, and I can’t thank her enough for all her help over the years!
