"I'm 51 years old and a father of one from Simpsonville, South Carolina. I have been training since 1984. I lifted weights for athletics for football and track and field to start my career. I got into more serious training after a couple of years mainly focusing on bodybuilding and powerlifting. I have been a competitor in both since 1988. I retired from bodybuilding in 1997 after placing well in several shows. I focused more on powerlifting and coaching powerlifters. I retired from active competition in 2007 after a major injury to focus on coaching other lifters.
My specialty is powerlifting coaching. I have coached high-level competitors as well as others who just wanted to get stronger. I also have trained several bodybuilders who placed well in shows. I write meal plans for both gaining and losing weight. I also write meal plans for competitive bodybuilders for the off-season as well as precontest preparation. I coach males and females, older and younger athletes, as well as general fitness. I have over 30 years of practical real-world experience.
I have placed well in bodybuilding competitions as well as being a record-holding powerlifter. I coach several powerlifters, including my son, who are all national and state-level competitors as well as record holders. I love coaching more than I ever did competing."
“Without a plan you believe in, your goal becomes a distant wish.”
"I have been training for the past 21 years. I began training while deciding whether or not I wanted to pursue a career in education after college and never looked back. There is great satisfaction in knowing that I can help someone achieve a goal that seems unrealistic. Also, the education aspect of training is another thing I cherish. I have held many certifications over the years (ACE, IFPA, and ISSA CPT and Nutrition certification from APEX NUTRITION). I have a Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration as well.
The range of individuals I train varies from teenagers to older adults. I also work with athletes and do contest preparation for bodybuilding and fitness shows. I have worked with many athletes in recovery in conjunction with their medical providers to maximize recovery and return to pre-injury form."
