Elite Athlete | Herculaneum, MO
I have always been involved in all sports from soccer, basketball and baseball. Once football became available in junior high, that became my love. I went on to play at Benedictine College, then in Europe and some Arena Football. I use fitness to challenge myself, that’s where Bodybuilding, Marathon running and Triathlons all come to play. I love the challenge, the push, the hurt and the failure they are all vital for satisfaction.
I have a passion for coaching, that sometimes is a little overwhelming for some, but my commitment to them is genuine as it gets. I love to see the growth and development of our young people. Sports can teach and develop you for so much that life has in store.
MY "AHA" MOMENT
About 10 years ago, a young client I had been working with about 2 years or so. I was in the stands at her first High School game. When she made her first 3 point attempt, I about came unglued sitting next to her parents. The rush of emotion that came over me really felt amazing, knowing I could help someone achieve their goal. Pretty cool day.
MY SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
My inspiration comes from many sources. Sometimes it’s watching young athletes compete, listening to an inspirational singer or song or even a personal story from a stranger.
In all its just TALENT and or Raw emotion, all forms are moving. I get goose bumps from seeing people excel in their moment.
THE NEVER SETTLE ATTITUDE
Growing up in an Air Force house of a Vietnam Veteran, discipline was always present; giving your best was expected no matter the outcome. You may fail but, your effort and commitment will not. That is some of the wisdom that my father bestowed on me.
Reflecting back, it would be being inducted in to my College Alma Mater H.O.F for Football. I have always said I couldn’t have done it without my teammates. It is the ultimate team sport, very fortunate for my time with them.
THE END GOAL
To always be blessed enough to share my passion for health and sports. That it will encourage someone, to pass on that passion. Life is about lessons, we all can learn from one another.
