I started his weightlifting journey at the age of 12 when I started lifting weights. But the passion for fitness started long before that. At the age of 3 I began playing tee ball, and at 4 began playing football. Growing up my dad had a home gym that would rival most local gyms in the area, and I remember watching him lift waiting for the day when I could start. Our house had a subscription to Muscle and Fitness when I was growing up, and I couldn’t wait to see the new issue and read about all of the workout programs and see the types of gains people were making. Through reading these magazines and watching my dad, I really became passionate about lifting weights. I would soak up everything I could about it, and especially grew fond of the Golden Era with guys like Arnold, Franco, and Frank Zane.
The passion extended to any form of competition whether it be football, baseball, or checkers. I wanted to be the best at whatever I did. And that is why I preach that competition is key for achieving great results. I saw the impact it had on my throughout my whole life. And it doesn’t matter if you are competing against yourself or others, embrace the competition mindset. I went on to play college baseball, and after college I got into Mixed Martial Arts which was a whole different level of competition. But throughout all of this, the weight room was my place. It is where I could go no matter what I had going on in my life.
My greatest passion is helping others achieve results and improve their life through fitness. I began creating workout plans for people while I was still in high school and have been hooked every sense I wrote my first program. I want to share this passion with the world. No matter what your goals are, I can help with a program that will get you there. I can customize your program for weight loss, muscle gain, toning up, or athletic performance. Let me help you take your results to the next level!
