More about me;
I'm from Arlington, Texas. I attended Trinity Valley School for high school. TVS is a very small college prep school. With the small numbers we didn't have cuts or off season. Therefore I was able to play many different varsity level sports even as a freshman.

That experience paid off HUGE because when I was a strength coach in college I was able to help out with many different sports. I attended Texas Tech University for my undergraduate & graduate degrees.

I also worked for a professional hockey team while in Lubbock. I did in game stats and public address for the Lubbock Cotton Kings. After college I lived in Denver working as an announcer for Denver University and the University of Colorado.

To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing people achieve their fitness goals. It's amazing to see the weight drop and energy re-emerge, and to have a clients knee or lower back pain disappear, but the biggest accomplishment I experience as a trainer is to see my clients able to truly get more out of life because they accomplished something great and regained control of their life.

The biggest reason I have for wanting to change peoples lives through fitness is the fact that I personally know what it's like to feel out of place, or different because of being over weight. I was a chubby KID in the late 80's eating salads and drinking Diet Coke while all my friends were eating McDonald's and drinking anything with sugar in it. I personally know what it's like to think there's no hope, and then pull a complete 180 and see the light.

I love being a personal trainer and don't see myself doing anything else, but eventually I'd like to own my own gym and be my own boss. I would like it to be pretty small. Just like the gym I mostly train out of now.

My style of training involves a couple of different methods depending on what your goals are and what your fitness level is. Since most people are in it to burn fat, I use more HITT and Functional Training than anything else. It is designed to increase the heart rate and keep it in the "fat burning" zone. While in the fat burning zone we do various strength training exercises. That way we are burning fat and sculpting the body at the same time. once your heart rate is in the fat burning zone, it will spike and drop in intervals, but stay above about 125 beats per minute. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Functional training means reproducing movements your body performs on a daily basis without the use of a machine. Such as your basic push, pull, squat, and lunge, but with no machine. We do this with the use of kettle bells, resistance bands, dumbbells, stability balls, and multiple exercises that can be performed with the body alone. Another style of training that I tend to utilize with my new clients that are more de conditioned or have a knee, ankle, or hip injury is unstable training. The theme here is to burn fat by properly utilizing as many major muscle groups as possible especially the core. The core basically consists of the lower back, abs, and obliques. The more muscles being used, the more calories are being burned. The idea is to challenge a persons stabilization or balance on just about every exercise. To properly balance, or stabilize one's self, the core must be utilized. In this style of training we use a lot of stability ball, balance board, air-ex pad, and single leg exercises. There is also a large emphasis on the stabilizers around the knee, hip, and ankle. Balance exercises are a common theme and are ideal for rehabbing knee, hip, and ankle injuries.
When I get a new client the first thing we talk about is his or her goals. This determines exactly what we will emphasize on. After I know what to focus on, we will do a Body Fat Analysis. This determines what percentage of your total body weight is fat. I use calipers to measure this, and we can have it done every month to measure your progress. I'm looking for steady progress, which means a decrease in a half to a whole percent per month, or a loss of 1 to 2 pounds per week.
