It may not appear this way, given my background as a starting college wide receiver, but I never had any interest in becoming a personal trainer. But in early 2014, there was a cataclysmic event that altered everything. I had my health & life-force taken away from me upon suffering a spinal injury.
I was fortunate enough to have a successful surgery & placement into a reputable Physical Therapist practice. Yet, after receiving world class treatment, I re-injured my spine. Although this would seem like a catastrophic event, it was this relapse that sparked my metamorphosis. I made the simple, yet all-powerful decision, to take extreme ownership over my situation, no matter the circumstance. I ditched the excuses, started making good things happen, and stopped dwelling on events that “happened to me.”
After years of obsessing over earning my health back & regaining happiness, I learned of the powerful opportunity I had to inspire the same change in others. My passion for functional strength & mobility as a foundation for a happy life was strong. Some would say too strong, as I legitimately scared people with my enthusiasm, looking like a crazy person being possessed with the power of this concept. But for every person I scared, there was another person who felt my passion, was inspired, and I could feel a change in their spirit. I don’t recall a more rewarding feeling. Even scoring a game-winning touchdown may fall short of this feeling. After realizing this, I knew that I needed to integrate this passion into a profession, so that I may continue to help people make their life’s better on their journey to overall health & happiness, while providing greater purpose to my own life.
