As many other young men of my generation I grew up playing all kinds of sports. I always considered myself to be in decent shape because I was active and successful at basketball, football and bowling. During college and after getting married I developed some poor eating habits and was less active which resulted in significant weight gain. I attempted the usual ways to lose weight – joined a gym, fad diets, but nothing lasted. Over the years, I’ve probably lost and regained hundreds of pounds.
Two years ago my wife and I started on a journey to strengthen our marriage through exercise. We exercised together three days a week – always holding each other accountable. We had both successfully lost a little weight, but we hoped for more. A close friend of ours invited us to attend a class at LiveNow Fitness and we were hooked. I love the energy and encouragement that fills the room with each and every class. I love how everyone supports one another; it feels like I am exercising with family and friends. I lost 45 pounds in the first six months and have kept it off for a year!
I’ve always enjoyed coaching and teaching, as it’s been a part of my life since my children were young. I’ve coached and taught hundreds of children in basketball and baseball and I love to use this outlet to teach life lessons. Bruce and David have a similar passion for their clients so I am grateful to them both for giving me the opportunity to help the LiveNow Fitness Family achieve their health and fitness goals.
I am currently studying to obtain my personal training certification. I anticipate completion by the end of the year. I look forward to continuing my fitness journey with the LiveNow family as we help each other reach our goals.
Currently studying for NASM-CPT [National Academy of Sports Medicine – Certified Personal Trainer]
