I grew up the “chubby kid”. Even though I was active and played sports, I always wanted to be more fit. I always wanted to look like the super heroes (and Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed etc.) and athletes I admired most. I also always wanted to jump higher, run faster and just be more athletic. I just never knew how to get there, and didn’t understand the value of physical training. When I got to college, I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life. After transferring home and playing some college football, I decided that I wanted to seek knowledge and finally take control of my health and fitness. Before I knew it, I was absolutely obsessed with everything training, nutrition and health. I walked away from football and started putting even more effort into changing my body. I was training nearly every day (sometimes for hours or more than once), reading and learning so much on my own – and throughout my own personal transformation, it became clear that I wanted to help others achieve their best health and fitness and transform their lives as I had. I began training/coaching in 2016 and I haven’t looked back since. My passion for growth and learning fuels me to continue to give my clients the best experience and results possible.
Over my years of being in the gym, and learning from many great fitness minds, I have learned a lot of different philosophies. I believe in training all physical disciplines in order to function optimally as a human being. This includes strength training, power training and energy systems training (cardio). I also believe in quality nutrition principles and lifestyle habits that will lead to optimal health and longevity. In reality, it comes down to consistent habits, mindfulness of your body and hard work over a lifetime. I believe this goes for all aspects of health and fitness whether it be your training, nutrition, lifestyle habits and everything else that has an impact on your health. My goal is to educate my clients and help them make health and fitness part of their life for life.
