My mission is to help people overcome injuries and pain , become stronger and get in the best shape at any age so that they do the things they love .
Movement has been an integral part of my life . I grew up playing soccer as kid in Senegal and still continue to play. I joined my first gym at age 15 , and learned how physical training contributes to mental and emotional strength and confidence.
I moved to New york city in 1999 and joined Dolphins gym and fell love with fitness .
In 2012 I decided get certified and leave my corporate job to follow my passion and dedicate myself fully to practicing sport medicine and help people . I made the jump because I felt unfulfilled sitting at a desk when I realized that my true calling was to help people:
