Sports

Since I was a kid, I was always into something.  My mom tried her best to keep me active. She had me in T-ball at the age of 5 and I even played a season of soccer at the same age. There was just something about being outside and running around. 

Later on, in my high school years, I continued with baseball, track and football. I was fortunate enough to go to the US Naval Academy to play football but I ended switching over to baseball due to my academic load as a mechanical engineering major. Division 1 football is no joke, it is a full-time job that required morning lifting sessions, team breakfast, team video review, team practice, afternoon lifting sessions, and team dinner. The 4 -5 hours of football a day made it hard to do well taking 18 credit hours as a freshman.

Since my true passion was baseball, it was an easy switch for me. Practice time was only a couple of hours a day and I was able to handle the academic load. This was my first experience with true strength training coaches. Little did I know then I was going to do that for a living. My goal was to become a fighter pilot and defend our country.

Near-Death Accident

After collegiate sports were over for me, I began bodybuilding in the summer of 2001. I would buy “Muscle and Fitness” magazine and use the workouts inside the pages. I know they were getting me stronger and more developed, but there was no rhyme or reason for my training, I would just move weight everyday.

In December 2001, I was involved in a near-death rollover accident. The doctors all agreed that the only reason I was only alive was due to my strength and muscular development. Walking away from a completely smashed truck with only minor injuries was a miracle.

A few days after the accident, I visited a chiropractor for the very first time. The pain from the accident was quickly popped out of me with a few twists and pushes. When I was able to get back into the gym a week or so later, I was starting from a low point in my physical body as well as in my life. But with the help of a few books and some consistency, I was able to get back to a level I could feel confident about. After experiencing what exercise could do for me, my path in the fitness industry had begun. 

Athlete-Centered Approach

My passion is to help people live a more fulfilled life, this all begins with being physically and emotionally healthy. The athlete-centered approach is a system we have developed at the Performance Ranch to help people with strength and conditioning, nutrition, sleep, recovery, and mindfulness. These are the cornerstones of the Performance Ranch. These 5 pillars of health work together to bring balance to our lives. When one of them is off, usually it will throw something else off. Are you ready to make a change and become more balanced? We are here for you! All you need to do is reach out to us.
