Owner and President

Growing up I was always athletic and played every sport offered, but i was still missing something. At age 15 I was introduced to the weight room (ours was literally the boiler room in my high school), which allowed me to see first-hand how a training program can impact a person’s performance, health, and sense of well being.

I earned my Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Boise State University. From there I worked as a strength coach at the University of Iowa, Marquette University, and the University of California - San Diego before deciding to embark on this adventure.  

While I have many certifications, the few that I’m most proud of are the CSCS, RKC (Russian Kettlebell) and the CSCCA (Collegiate Strength Coaches Certification) where I won the John Stuckey award.

I’m also certified in the functional movement screen (FMS) and USA Weightlifting (USAW). 

My passions are helping others experience success, beach volleyball and surfing.
