I grew up in Conway, AR but now live in Maumelle. I still visit family and friends regularly there as roots are very important to me. I attended the University of Central Arkansas where I thoroughly enjoyed their exercise science program. It was truly an amazing program to be a part of and enabled me to learn a wide range of information. Not to mention, a network with others for life! I played sports my entire life and ended up going to college and playing soccer. As time went on I lost my passion for playing the game and chose to pick up weight lifting. I’ve been doing it ever since, and I’m always trying to learn and stay on top of the current research 3 trends. When I am not working, you can find me with my wife and dog on a spontaneous weekend trip or just hanging with our families playing cards/watching movies.
I am known professionally for training older adults in performance aging and the youth population in functional sports performance. My goal in working in the fitness industry is to make sure people are educated and equipped to live long and healthy lives. I am best at solving many problems for my clients, but the main one that I focus the most on is movement issues. Movement issues are the most basic form of fitness and how one “moves” safely is essential to their fitness journey. I would not be able to give up the ability to move well and would go stir crazy if I couldn’t lift, run, kick, etc. This is why I make it my mission to make sure that my client’s moveability is our first priority when we work together. If you ever meet any of my clients, they would tell you that I helped them be able to move pain-free again & that they are in the best shape they’ve ever been in.
A few fun facts about me are that I really enjoy learning from podcasts of people I respect, Middle School Ministry is a volunteer activity that I am very crazy about, I do have a few various trophies, medals/etc from years of soccer, and I have at one point or another broken every one of my toes. I would also like to be remembered as a great man, a good husband & father, and someone who took the time to gain as much knowledge as possible from all walks of life.
