About this pro

Former college star athlete for University of Richmond and now certified trainer passionate to see athletes succeed on and off the field.

Initial evaluation is to determine if this is the proper fit; During that session the most important focus is on what is the overall goal before we workout to ensure the goals meet the dreams, the current reality, family requirements, meets the effort and commitment. Typically this portion lasts about 20-30 minutes the first day. Then we'll gradually move from aerobic work, to anaerobic, to strength, flexibility drills while learning the terms and techniques my coaches use to ensure the client and I are on the same page moving forward. We'll go through all of the Olympic lifts if it's in the off-season so we can determine the best starting point. Force application is very important to me to increase speed, leverage, reduce injuries, and build up durability and confidence. we will also discuss the holistic plan - academics, professional goal if older, business, running terminology - macrocycles, microcycles, short to long, and long to short programs, spiritual philosophy, and current/former workouts while we work. Once I feel comfortable my client understands and we commit. We move forward based on a customized plan working backwards from goal to drive to the goal.

I have been working with sports my entire life and grew up in a culture of accomplished sports professionals. Currently I am the Associate Performance Director for Savage Flight. We currently train kids from age 5 and up with sport specific training integrated in their workouts. Also I currently help MVP Track and Field Club with their national credited athletes. I pride myself on the self-motivation I have to see the next athlete accomplish their goals on and off the field. I had a rough and short curtail to my career due to a medical situation I could not control.  The pain I have from not continuing my athletic career has turned into a passion to see others succeed no matter what obstacle they face.
