Story Part One


My interest in fitness was inspired at a very young age. My grandfather was an elite level soccer coach. I was five when I had my first gym class at the gym where he trained his soccer athletes. Although my grandfather trained in soccer, he wanted me to train in gymnastics because he felt that it would provide a solid foundation for any sport. He believed that gymnastics sharpened body awareness different than other sports. My grandfather and my parents felt that the skills I would develop in gymnastics would later position me to play my sport of choice in the future. I participated in gymnastics training until I was nine. I began weightlifting at 14 while I was in high school. I learned how to train like a bodybuilder, building muscle and staying lean. After graduating from high school, I got a job at 24-Hour Fitness. Getting that job changed the course of my life, but how I came to get that job is an even better story – one that also changed my life.
