My Story

rowing up, I was an introverted, overweight kid with an enormous love for food.  My mother even said as a chunky toddler, I would waddle over to other people’s tables at restaurants and open my mouth in hopes that they would share their food.  The love for food, all kinds of food, has obviously been my thing since birth.   Luckily for me, I also loved sports and being active outdoors. Being athletic and always wanting to compete kept me in decent shape throughout school.  I captained my wrestling and football team in high school and went on to play collegiate rugby for the University of Rhode Island.  I studied fitness and nutrition but went the route of attaining a business management degree. After graduating, I quickly realized that in order for me to be happy and successful I needed to find a career that I’m truly passionate about. I combined my love for people, athletics, and business into one and became a personal trainer.

Subsequently, I managed various health clubs on the east coast while training clients in the gym as well as virtually all over the world. I moved to the fitness mecca, San Diego, to chase my dreams of entrepreneurship in year round sunshine.  I began my own private training and nutrition business and a few years later opened two successful group training gyms.  I’ve had the opportunity to help motivate and train thousands of clients over the years whom most of which I’ve developed close relationships with.  I love teaching people how to reach their goals, while at the same time enjoying everything life has to offer. Be active and be healthy the majority of the time, and you can enjoy those special “cheat” days even more.  I use the FSC principles every single day and it allows me to stay healthy, keep my body lean and allows me to eat all the pizza I want on football Sunday!

y journey in the fitness industry began 10 years ago after becoming a certified trainer with the National Association of Sports Medicine, and nutritionist with the National Academy of Sports Nutrition. I developed a love for coaching through my sports career as a football player at Southwestern Community College. My athletic career continued on after school with the semi-pro, San Diego Thunder. This gave me the opportunity to work alongside some of the best athletes and coaches in the world. I was an NFL combine attendee and although professional sports had always been a goal of mine, I wanted to make a bigger impact on people’s lives. My drive to coach others and share my story started with a few private training clients and then leading large group fitness classes at local gyms and parks throughout San Diego.

Along the way, I was fortunate enough to become the lead role for a few large direct marketing companies that relied on me to provide incredible body transformations.  I worked with professional and Olympic athletes, as well as with some of the biggest nutrition and fitness companies in the world.  My job was to transform as many people as possible within a few weeks time and provide mouth dropping before and after pictures! I learned along the way that a huge part of my own success and teaching others was through goal setting and mindset techniques. I focus just as much on mental health with my clients as I do with physical fitness.
