About Me

I consider myself a retired athlete; a washed up adventurer; an adrenaline junkie whose passion for extreme sports has spanned the last decade. While I hold the stance that the ceiling of human performance is far from being understood, it is a hard thing to push people to their limits when so many are stuck dealing with perpetual recurring injuries that result from faulty movement patterns. Understanding those patterns and improving them sits at the core of my approach to training.


After 30 years of working out, competing in Division 1 basketball and boxing with professional fighters I noticed several things. Most people working out would quit after a month or two because they failed to see results. They failed to achieve what they wanted and the frustration of not seeing the results would discourage them from trying. Why was this? Most training I observed wasn’t focused on the specific muscle group or core muscles. I was taught to focus on core muscle groups early on and have kept that as my main stay in all of my workouts. Also, they didn’t have a starting point and they really didn’t track their results. I felt it would be like going to school and never seeing a report card. In my 30’s I discovered boxing and started working with supersets, and taking muscle groups all the way to exhaustion. With Fast Twitch Isokinetic training and core focus I saw fast results and big strength gains. Strength gains that have stayed with me into my 50’s.
