“There is nothing stronger than a made mind.”

Austin, TX

Greatest Health Triumph
After lower my body fat I was able to set a bench press record for my 220 lb weight class at 380 lbs.  It was 15 lbs over my previous best.

Why You Love Your Job
I have a passion to help others. Training gives me the opportunity to help others reach their goals and change their lives for the better. I love being able to help someone work through a previous injury and teach them how they can proactively keep it from happening again.

Sports and Fitness Background
At Lake Travis High School, I was a power lifter, sprinter and played strong safety for my football team. In a game against our rivals, I interception the quarterback and returned it for a touchdown. This sealed the win for my team and helped propel us to the playoffs. Over the last few years I have competed as a powerlifter and hold a state record for bench press.

Favorite Things to do in Austin
I love the summer months when I can soak in the sun by the water. I am a die hard football fan. I love watching my Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns!

Other Hobbies
I love riding motorcycles, cooking, fine dining, playing sports, movies, concerts, races, and traveling.
