About Me

My Story

I grew up as someone who was always active in sports and growing up my weight was never an issue.  Then after I tore my ACL in college (combined with the beer and pizza diet of the typical college student) I began to gain weight quickly.  By the time I had been out of school for a few years and began my teaching career, I had gained almost 50 pounds!

I was unhappy with how I looked and as my wife and I were beginning our family I didn’t feel as though I would be acting as a good role model for my children.

It took me almost a decade of trial and error to get my fitness level and body image back to a place where I was proud of how I looked.  And along the way I made a ton of mistakes.  I thought I could simply run and lift weights and I would be back to the body I had when I left home for college.  The first 15+ pounds came off quickly but then I hit a plateau.

It wasn’t until I understood I learned that you can’t outwork a bad diet that I actually saw the dramatic change in my results.  Soon after, my friends and family began asking me for advice.  As a teacher I love helping others succeed and the passion to lean and pass on my knowledge is what prompted me to become an online health and fitness coach.

It shouldn’t take you a decade worth of mistakes to learn what does and doesn’t work.  Instead I’m here to guide and coach you through the process.

To your health,
