About Coach Sam
Where I'm from & where I now call home
I was born in Pozzuoli, Italy and now live in Indiana.
How I like to spend my free time
I really enjoy being outdoors (mountain climbing), reading, cooking for family and friends. I am a big foodie!
My go-to workout
A kettlebell total body workout! It’ll leave you on the floor for at least 15 minutes afterward in glorious exhaustion.
These are just some of the things that make me feel alive!
A little bit more about me
My furry friends
I have 2 dogs- a Goldendoodle named Merlin and a Bernedoodle named Mac. Merlin has traveled the world with me, visiting 8 countries in his very short 3 years of life. Mac is named after Fleetwood Mac, the MAAC conference, and Mackey Arena at Purdue University
Something on my bucket list
To fly a helicopter.
My motivation music
Typically depends on my mood for the day or what my workout will be, but I can always get down with country and 70’s hits!
I'm most proud of...
My professional basketball career because it allowed me to connect with people on such a real level and be able to inspire kids (and adults) around me.
What makes me the right choice as your coach?
l’ll give you the insight on how to keep workouts fun, interesting and still be effective! There are so many variations of exercises to utilize and I really love being able to give people options that work for them.
