About Me

  • 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.
