44 year old male
I am a Chicago native even though I have moved around for much of my life having lived in several different cities throughout the US. I went to high school in Louisville, KY where I played football, soccer and was on the wrestling team. I received and academic scholarship to attend the University Tennessee in Knoxville where I studied psychology. While at Tennessee I was on Student council, was the starting eight man for the men's rugby team and was a resident assistant. I moved to Boulder, CO my junior year to finish up my education with and received my first personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise. After a short time working in Surgery and in pharmaceutical sales after graduation I decided to move back to Chicago and get into personal training full time.
Getting my own business off the ground and realizing that I could actually make this an entrepreneurial endeavor.
Working in corporate fitness... You know which gyms you are.
I will be going back to school in the fall of '09 to earn a master's degree in psychology which I am looking forward to integrate into my practice. I also am working on a book and getting together the financing for a gym.
I just got back into martial arts again and while it has started out a little shaky I enjoy it and look forward to making it part of my fitness lifestyle.
Getting to the gym. Chicago can get really cold and motivating to get out on those negative 10 degree days takes a lot.
Remind myself that I am setting the bar for my clients to live up to I have to practice what I preach.
I want to leave the gym feeling better then I did when I got there, to much work and you are run down, to little and it was a waste of time.
Lose body fat
I have spurts of consistent exercise, but then go through periods of inactivity.
I consider myself somewhat of an expert.
I like to workout with friends, but still want to get a good workout.
