Born and raised in rural Nebraska, I grew up working on the farm at a very early age making me no stranger to hard work. As with any kid from a small country town I found myself enjoying sports such as football and wrestling, so much so that after high school I played 2 years of Division II College Football. After college I continued my love for weightlifting and competition and eventually found myself competitively powerlifting and bodybuilding which has lead me to understand the body’s need for strength and attention to detail along with the dietary experience to know what exactly the body needs to perform optimally. So, through playing outside as a child, competing in various sports in my youth and as a teenager, working blue collar jobs an adult, and my 18-year love for the gym and working out, I’ve turned my familiarity with physical activity into a career of passion as a personal trainer and diet coach working with a wide variety of clients. With a vast knowledge of biomechanics and knowing, in detail, how muscles work individually and collectively, along with the ability to design a diet program to achieve any physical outcome, I have the knowledge and experience to help any individual reach their fitness and lifestyle goal.
