Fitness Journey:

After a youth spent playing various sports without ascending beyond the level of mediocrity, I discovered the weight room. From there, I embarked on a lifelong journey of at times recreational weightlifting, and at other times competition in strength sports like Powerlifting and Strongman. While I was never an elite competitor, I was able to set and continue to hold multiple Kentucky state records in Powerlifting and won a local Strongman meet. I use the things I learned programming for myself and others to claw my way forward for years on end to help others in their journeys, whether their goals are competitive in nature or just self improvement. My career mission is to use my background in the fitness industry and gym culture to help cultivate a lifelong love of fitness in others, and along the way help to strengthen the wonderful community I walked into.
