About Coach

Born and raised in Mobile, AL, I grew up a chunky kid who struggled with weight. I had no consciousness of how to eat properly, so I would eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. As a multi-sport athlete, I learned that working out and eating healthy was imperative to having success. On Christmas 2001, I got my first weight set and began working out, doing anything I felt would make my muscles sore. It worked! My body changed and from then on I fell in love with fitness. In college, I was awarded a football scholarship and excelled on the field earning many awards including 2009 HBCU All-American honors. My career continued after college, playing 4 years in the Arena Football league. At this time, I pursued a career in fitness, obtaining multiple certifications and preparing for life after football.

Turning Point

Being the fat kid whose family was ignorant of proper fitness and nutrition. It was time for a change and I knew I needed to help my family in the process.

Motivation & Passion

I'm no drill sergeant, but I love what I do and I'm passionate about it. I don't make people do anything they don't want to do, but my goal is to push you beyond your limits. I meet people exactly where they are, and provide them with a plan to achieve success.
