I grew up in Alaska, in the small town of Palmer. My athletic career started with gymnastics, martial arts, and skateboarding. When I got to high school, my friends all got into bodybuilding, so naturally I followed suit. When friends and family started to notice changes I was making, they wanted to know how. This is when my personal training career started 15 years ago.
Eventually my approach to physical development changed. I began studying broader fields of movement. I got into CrossFit, powerlifting, yoga, calisthenics, traditional Chinese martial arts, rock climbing, and various mobility methods. These all form the ever-evolving basis of what I teach today.
