Bio: CrossFit Level 1 Certified
NSCA – CPT
AS/BS Sports & Fitness Management (Exercise Specialist)
My fitness journey traces back to when I was a kid. I grew up playing sports, mostly basketball and baseball. I was involved in working out and conditioning to help aid my performance. I even took part in swimming and cross country to build endurance.In college, when my athletic career was coming to an end, I started lifting weights full time with mostly bodybuilding style workouts. Because of my competitive nature, I entered a few body building shows, winning my first and finishing average in the others. The grind of body building took its toll on me. It was a yo-yo of eating everything in sight to gain mass, dieting for months to get lean just for one appearance, then, bulking back up again. I realized this was not a healthy lifestyle!
