Bachelor of Science, Kinesiology (University of Texas at Tyler)
Certified Personal Trainer (National Academy of Sports Medicine)
Strength Training / Power Lifting
I grew up as a coach's son, so health, fitness, and competition have played an important role in my life. After high school, I attended UT Tyler in pursuit of a degree in Kinesiology. While attending, I completed my internship with APEC and graduated later that year. I accepted a job at Hallsville ISD coaching HS football and track. Although thankful for my time coaching and what it taught me, I decided to pursue a career more oriented towards fitness, which has always been my passion. The bulk of my experience is focused around Olympic strength training; however, I also incorporate athletic movement and functional exercise to keep the body balanced and joints healthy.
