FIRST THING, I'M NOT JUST A FITNESS GUY. MY LIFE'S JOURNEY HAS BEEN MUCH MORE. I WAS BLESSED WITH A FAMILY WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AND I HOLD TIGHT TO MY FAITH. I AM A DAD TO 4 CHILDREN AND A HUSBAND. SO I LOVE DOING ALL THINGS DAD. I ALSO LOVE MUSIC. MY FAMILY PLAYED IN A CLASSIC ROCK BAND AT HOME AND FOR CROWDS. IT INFLUENCED ME A BUNCH. I NOW DABBLE IN A COUPLE INSTRUMENTS, PERFORMED AS A DJ AROUND THE USA, MEXICO AND EARNED AN AUDIO ENGINEERING CERTIFICATE. I WATCHED MY GRANDFATHER AND HIS BROTHER BUILD STRUCTURES WITH BRICKS AND MATERIALS. SO I NOW ALSO LIKE TO BUILD STUFF. I WATCHED MY DAD AND HIS BROTHER WORK ON CARS. SO I NOW ALSO ENJOY WORKING ON MECHANICAL THINGS. OUR WHOLE FAMILY LIKES RACE CARS, "BOOGITY BOOGITY BOOGITY". I AM A FORMER AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER WITH THE EQUIVALENT OF AN ASSOCIATES IN AVIATION. SO I LOVE WATCHING AIRPLANES, ROCKET SHIPS AND THINGS THAT FLY. I AM A FORMER US MARINE. SO I GET INVOLVED IN MILITARY CHARITIES WHEN I CAN. I'VE MADE MISTAKES AND LEARNED MY LESSONS. SO I NOW ALSO LIKE TO GIVE TIME TO OTHERS THAT NEED POSITIVE SUPPORT. I'VE WORKED IN RESTAURANTS AND GREW UP IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WATCHING FRUITS AND VEGGIES GROW. I HAVE A GREAT RESPECT FOR THE WAY OUR FOOD IS PRODUCED AND I LOVE GROWING MY OWN WHEN POSSIBLE. DON'T GET ME WRONG I LOVE FITNESS AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. IT'S IMPORTANT, BUT THAT'S NOT ALL OF WHO I AM. IT NORMALLY DOESN'T MAKE UP ALL OF THE PEOPLE I COACH EITHER. I MEAN, WHAT GOOD IS BEING PHYSICALLY FIT IF IT TAKES ALL YOUR TIME AND YOU DON'T GET TO ENJOY THE REST OF LIFE? 

AS FAR AS FITNESS GOES HERE'S MY STORY. I HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY ACTIVE MY ENTIRE LIFE. WHEN MY MOM CAME LOOKING FOR ME, I WAS USUALLY OUTSIDE CLIMBING OR RACING. IT WAS COMMON FOR ME TO SPEND WEEKS AT MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE EXPLORING THE MOUNTAINS, STREAMS, RIVERS AND LAKES OF KERN VALLEY. STILL TO THIS DAY, I WOULD RATHER BE ACTIVELY OUTDOORS THAN INDOORS. I WAS ENGAGED IN SOCCER AND WRESTLING AT A YOUNG AGE. PLAYING  WITH SOME OF THE PREMIER SOCCER CLUBS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND HAVING AN UNDEFEATED WRESTLING SEASON DURING MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. I CONTINUED TO WRESTLE BRIEFLY IN COLLEGE BEFORE JOINING THE US MARINE CORPS IN 1996, WHICH CONTINUED MY FITNESS JOURNEY.

AT THE END OF MY MILITARY SERVICE, I DECIDED TO CHANNEL MY LOVE FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND MY MARINE CORPS EXPERIENCE. IN 2001 I BEGAN TRAINING UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYES OF GREAT AND SOME NOW FAMOUS FITNESS COACHES. I THEN OBTAINED MY CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINING CERTIFICATION FROM THE NATIONAL EXERCISE & SPORTS TRAINERS ASSOCIATION (NESTA) IN 2005 AND LAUNCHED MY OWN PERSONAL TRAINING BUSINESS. AT THIS POINT, I WAS LUCKY TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY COACHING NUMEROUS PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, RADIO PERSONALITIES, POLICE OFFICERS, FIREMAN, MILITARY PERSONNEL, FBI AGENTS, CORPORATE GROUPS AND AMERICA'S WORK FORCE. GAINING VERY VALUABLE EXPERIENCE OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS BY CONTINUING TO COACH ALONGSIDE ATLANTA'S TOP FITNESS COMPETITORS, BODYBUILDERS, FUNCTIONAL TRAINERS, WEIGHT LOSS SPECIALISTS AND OTHER FITNESS PROFESSIONALS.

REALIZING LONG AGO THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE A NEED TO GET FIT, MAKE NEW HABITS AND LEARN TO USE THEIR BODIES MORE EFFICIENTLY AND IN A MANNER THAT FITS THEIR LIFESTYLE AND PERSONALITY. I HAVE LEARNED MANY FORMULAS THAT WORK FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS OF FITNESS AND MANY DIFFERENT LIFESTYLES. WITH OVER 20 YEARS OF FITNESS EXPERIENCE, I GET RESULTS FROM BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED ATHLETES. I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS HAVE COME FROM COACHING CLIENTS TO LIVE HEALTHIER AND MORE FULFILLING LIVES IN WHICH THEY WERE NO LONGER DEPENDENT ON HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH CHOLESTEROL MEDICINES..., AWESOME!!

ACCOMPLISHING MANY PHYSICAL CHALLENGES FROM SPORTS, MILITARY, PHYSIQUE GAINS, MODELING, CLIMBING MOUNTAINS, HIKING LONG DISTANCE, SURVIVAL OUTDOORS AND RUNNING MARATHONS, I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY LIFE'S JOURNEY WILL GO NEXT. ULTIMATELY I DO KNOW BUILDING A CAREER AROUND HELPING OTHERS GOING 

THROUGH THE TOUGH TRAINING, LEARNING CURVES, NEW HABITS, EMOTIONAL STRUGGLES AND IN THE END WITNESSING THAT PERSON ACCOMPLISH THEIR GOAL, WOW, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT.
