Shane earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and minor in Biochemistry from the University of Arizona. He has been an ACE certified personal trainer since 2008 and is currently working towards his CSCS (certified strength and conditioning specialist) credential through the NSCA (National Strength & Conditioning Association). Shane creates adaptive dietary guidelines for his clients using the newest scientific data available. His approach incorporates real life expectations with a focus on a healthy relationship with food, education, and customization, rather than a set meal plan. He takes all areas of his clients’ lives into consideration, including daily schedules, food preferences, exercise preferences, previous experiences, and potential barriers. Shane is actively writing a grant for the local school district to fund a nutrition education and physical activity promotion program. When he is not working with clients, Shane enjoys spending time with his wife and their 3-year-old daughter. He enjoys cooking and creating new recipes that can be adapted to anyone’s needs and food preferences. "My goal is to teach clients how to eat and attain the body composition that they desire while eating the foods that they enjoy and guiding their journey via science and support to ensure life long success."
