“I got my start in fitness very early. As a little kid my parents got me involved in every sport. Wrestling was the main focus back then, with a career that spans 1st grade through 12th. In high school I began power lifting. This transitioned into strong man competitions. I continued strong man throughout high school until leaving for college in 2007. Even in high school I knew I wanted a career in fitness. I was just unsure about how best to begin. I received my first Training certification from the Salina YMCA the summer following high school graduation.  
 
After two years in the Athletic training program at KSU I joined the USMC. In addition to all other responsibilities in the corps I began training fellow marines in the gym as well as Machine Gun crew operations.

Leaving the military after 5 years I returned home finding work at the local health club. I began by taking some of their group fitness classes. Shortly after that Cindy asked me to begin instructing, this lead to my first MOSSA certification. From that point on I decided to make this my career. I became a certified personal trainer at Genesis Health clubs in the early summer of 2014.

I continue to instruct multiple Group Ride classes as well as Group Kick. My recreational activities now consist of competing in Mud runs across the mid west.

I have two nephews that come to the day care here regularly. The oldest is a huge fan of what i do and loves playing with his toddler weights. We have recently been working on his hand stands.”
