My professional philosophy about physical activity is that with most of the population living a sedentary lifestyle, sitting at a desk working on a computer by day just to come home to cook too much food for the family while watching the latest reality TV series or playing video games by night, people need a lifestyle change. These individuals need to be guided through exercise routines that reduce stress levels, expend energy, and allow them to make advancements everyday. My goal is to show people that exercise can be fun and enjoyable, using different types of equipment in the gym setting or house hold objects at a nearby park, as well as their own body weight if on the go. It should not feel like a chore or punishment that everyone dreads but instead an everyday activity that people look forward to participating in. As a Certified Personal Trainer at Sterling's Team Speed, it is my objective to get people moving and enjoying life more by playing with materials that are in their immediate environment.

My name is Bentley and I am the mascot at Sterling's Team Speed. My Dad is Sterling and we are both co-owners of Sterling's Team Speed. I regularly train at Sterling's Team Speed by walking the floor and playing ball. I am extremely proficient with soccer balls, as I am the goalie of Sterling's Team Speed's team. In addition to playing ball I do strength training to keep myself fit. I welcome everyone into the Sterling's Team Speed facility and appreciate being acknowledged and pet. I do take naps on the treadmill or in my Dad's office, as he trains me hard and I need to get my rest. I'm proud to say that I've been nominated several times for Athlete of the Month. I look forward to meeting you at Sterling's Team Speed!
