I always had a very on and off again relationship with fitness and training outside of an organized sport until I learned how fun I could make my training and fitness. I enjoyed learning about how to train for different lifting sports like powerlifting, strongman, and weightlifting, and important fundamentals for maximizing results while reducing risk of injury. Along the way, I also gained a deeper connection with myself, improved my confidence and drive, and made awesome friends who are some of the best motivators!

The Fitlosophy I want to share is that training can be fun, motivating, and provide positive impact on your life! I love guiding people down their right paths, helping them learn new things, and inspiring an appreciation for fitness! My goal is to help people understand their fitness goals, work with them to achieve their goals, and set them up to keep progressing!

Hobbies or a fun fact(s):

  • I have competed in 2 strongman shows.
  • I do (almost) all my own car maintenance and plan to race my current car.
  • I lived in southern Illinois for 16 years before moving to Gainesville full time in 2018.
  • When I’m not in the gym or studying, I’m usually at a pool hall.
