I have been active all my life and was drawn to this field by a love of movement. From early on in my life I was fascinated by the anatomy and biomechanics of this incredible "body." I studied Exercise Science at Virginia Commonwealth University, then went on to get multiple post graduation certifications - NSCA, CSCS, HKC, CK-FMS, RKC, SFG. I opened the first kettlebell oriented gym in central Virginia in 2003, and since then I have trained literally thousands of clients, students and other fitness professionals in and around the Richmond Virginia area.
As for the rest of my life, I have a beautiful wife and 5 great kids. I play guitar and sing in a local band, The Spottsmen. I play a lot of disc golf in my free time. And, when I get the chance I love to snow ski and rock climb.
