I attended and graduated from a college with sports medicine "rehab" as my emphasis. I’ve been in the fitness industry for the past 10 years. I started @ 24 hour fitness and learned a lot, but felt I topped out; eventually I left to a private facility with higher end clientele. I enjoyed working for a private facility because it gave me autonomy with my fitness programs. After a few years, I ran corporate wellness programs for three different companies with 500 to 1500 employees. It was a challenge, however very rewarding. I chose to leave and became a partner for a start up Fitness/ Strength & Conditioning facility. Being your own boss is great, but most do not realize the amount of mundane details that are associated with it. "You really have to cross your "t's" and dot your "I's" for everything." I appreciate the dedication of an athlete; I've been blessed to work with a few Olympic athletes already. I am a USA Weightlifting Coach now, I would either like to work my way up the Olympic ranks, or become a head Strength & Conditioning Coach for a university.
My hobbies are really anything active and with health & wellness being a focal point for myself; I have done about 10 marathons, a few Triathlons, my last being the M3 half ironman in Valencia.
My 2011 short term goals are to get more involved with some charities in need.
My long term goal is to qualify for the Kona Ironman for my age group.
