I have participated in many sports throughout my life including soccer, baseball, wrestling, football, judo, karate, track & field, softball, motorcycle roadracing, and weightlifting. I have nine years experience as a collegiate Division 1 strength and conditioning coach where I designed and implemented strength training programs for Baseball, Women's Basketball, Equestrian, Men's and Women's Golf, Men's Soccer, Softball, Women's Swimming and Diving, Women's Tennis, Men's and Women's Throwers, and Wrestling. I also have over four years experience training youth through professional athletes and adults. Prior to becoming a strength and conditioning coach, I was a firefighter for a US Forest Service hand crew for 13 seasons.
