Meet Cameron Mulvihill

personal trainer cameron

I love fitness because I love pushing my boundaries and always trying to become a better version of myself. I love that when I work out I could have a terrible day, but I can always have a sense of accomplishment that day that I worked out. I realize that fitness is one of the best ways that you can take care of yourself and improve your quality of life. I also believe that working out a lot can teach you so much about yourself and what you are capable of. I got into personal training because I enjoy teaching others what I know and I would like to motivate someone to make a positive change in their lives.

My personal style is that I like to personalize my routine. I don’t like recycling the same routine because I feel like everybody is different and has their own goals. My plans will be very personal and very goal oriented. I’m not looking to waste anyone’s time. I can relate well with those who are trying to lose weight or gain muscle. I also love to learn and I am constantly trying to teach myself new things
