You must take care of yourself, this isn't about being selfish. This is about making sure you are capable of performing at your optimal levels.
"You can't pour from an empty cup."
"Put your own oxygen mask on first."
"The most important investment you can make is the investment in yourself."
The genesis of my philosophy stems from mentors and coaches from time as an Athlete and Trainer. I have been blessed to have been guided by some of the brightest minds in the industry including:
ALTIS located in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
C.H.E.K Institute located in Carlsbad, California, USA.
DBC Fitness located in Miami, Florida, USA.
Charles Poliquin of Strength Sensei Training located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
Prague School of Rehabilitation located in Prague, Czech Republic
Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell Team located in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
My father pushed me to participate in sports as soon as I was capable of walking. My father coached/motivated my brothers and I to compete in a variety of sports and taught us the value of hard work at a young age. When I began high school I primarily focused on Football and Track and Field. During my senior year I was offered an Athletic Scholarship to play Football for Robert Morris University.
After a number of injuries, a car accident, and the passing of my Grandfather my focus shifted to life after Football and more so on Academics. Working in the fitness industry for over 10 years, I have learned from experience with credit to the hands on approach and the professionals I have been blessed to learn from.
With my experience, I can help you make healthy, realistic, sustainable lifestyle choices without the fads, quick fixes and gimmicks - to help you improve your health for now, and for the long-term.
