My fitness journey began around the age of 15 upon signing up at a Mixed Martial Arts gym. At 5’9 130lbs I was always the smallest guy in the gym and sparring guys 40-50lbs bigger than me. When I was 17 I began weight training to try and add some size to my frame. I quickly became obsessed with the training and began reading every bodybuilding magazine I could, watching any fitness youtube videos out there, and reading forums. Upon joining the Marine Corps right out of high school bodybuilding became my main passion and focus. I competed in my first Men’s Physique competition at 21 and seeing how my body could change so quickly just from manipulating certain foods and macronutrients I became even more passionate for nutrition. After that show, I became infatuated with learning as much as possible about supplementation, micronutrients, dieting techniques, and all things related to nutrition. Talking about topics I have learned about allowed me to begin helping close friends and family with their nutrition and health and this eventually led to me helping more and more people. Starting in fall of 2020 I will begin studying to become a Doctor of Chiropractic and I hope to be able to bring health to as many people as possible.
I have a very "no BS” approach as a coach. I am not one to babysit or sugarcoat but I will however give you my 100% at all times if give me yours. As a coach my goal is to not only get you the results you want but to educate you as to WHY we are doing things the way we are. My approach to nutrition is very straight forward and my goal is to make your program as sustainable as possible to your lifestyle. All my programs have a strong emphasis on micronutrients whether you are a contest prep or lifestyle client. Communication is the most important thing while working with me. The clients who get the best results are the ones who are in constant communication with me, even if it is just a text mid week to tell me how things are going.
