Personally I have been involved in many different disciplines of martial arts and half way through my health and fitness career I was inspired by my athletes to push myself more. So I decided to join the ranks of the United States Air Force and then spent 6 years with the USAF at different capacities and served overseas. After 6 years of serving, it was finally time to get back to civilian life full time and back to helping the communities and changing lives.
I can recall many turning points in my life, but I can pin point two exacts moments in which I knew I had to make a change. Just before my senior year of high school, I suffered a torn labrum unknowingly and as a young athlete I paid it no mind and just wanted to play. However my performance worsened and eventually stopped entirely. I had to get surgery and would be in a sling for some time and of course there would be a fair amount of physical therapy before even attempting to get back to sports. This broke my spirit as a young athlete, I was confused, depressed, and lost as to what was next for me as my two passions were no longer an option.
In college I found myself lost, partying, not really sure what to study or what direction to take my life. I was overweight, out of shape and just felt gross. I was extremely embarrassed of myself, but I knew something had to change, that I had to change. I got myself enrolled into some anatomy and fitness classes at the University of New Mexico which opened up my mind and opened some doors back into the sports field. This is when I vowed to invest myself into the health and fitness industry to help lead and teach those who are looking to break down those walls of depression, self-doubt, and wonderment of what-if.
Motivation & Passion
My passion and motivation is helping others find that light(bulb) within themselves. Most have it, most just don't know how to turn it on and keep it lit. It can absolutely be hard at times too with life constantly changing and seemingly to be moving faster and faster. I am here to help those who want to get that extra edge and those who want to dig deep and harder themselves and evolve to the versions of themselves they want to me. I don't want to just help change people physically, I want to help change in all facets of life. Mind, body and soul. We all deep down have that inner voice that is screaming and yelling to be let loose and just wants to take charge and live, but often we tame that voice down and become fearful of possible "failure." We want failure, because growth, positivity, and good comes from that.
