A typical day in my life includes…

waking up in the wee hours to do some cardio to wake my mind up and get my head clear for the day. Knock out an hour of work and emails before getting my boys up and off to school. Head to my gym where I spend a few hours doing the day to day business operations, then several hours training clients one on one in person, then email program and diet updates to my online clients. Work with my prep competitors choregraphing fitness routines, finish the day with any meeting or calls to wrap up business tasks. Then get my boys to baseball & soccer practice, then homework, family time, bedtime and repeat!

I was born…

at a really young age….LOL J in Jackson, Mississippi

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the amazing weather, the picture perfect sunsets and unlimited outdoor activities when it’s less than 100 degrees outside of course.

I’m listening to…

hip-hop or anything with a good dance beat and high energy that just makes ya wanna move.

My family…

is my everything. My 2 boys are my entire world and nothing is better than hearing their laughter and seeing their sweet happy faces.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my dad and two brothers. Since my mom passed away a couple years ago our family gatherings are of course different and to avoid the sadness whenever we all get together we focus so much on all the kiddos and making sure they’re all enjoying every moment with each other. But that doesn’t leave hardly any time for the adults to sit down uninterrupted and truly catch up and share everything that’s going on with one an0ther. I’ve very lucky to have such an incredible dad and older brothers that I would soak up as much time with them as I could.

One thing I cannot live without…

DONUTS?

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a football player. I idolized my two older brothers and wanted to be just like them and this was their sport. I didn’t realize that football was a sport for guys at my young age so this was a goal for two years when I was little.

I’m inspired by…

those who overcome difficult or devastating situation and still find ways to cope and rise above and keep a smile on their face because they can focus on the good when the bad tries to take over.

The one person who motivates me is…

my competition. I wont allow myself to be outworked by other athletes.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to stop bullying. It has become far too common and frequent and social media has opened up the doors for aggressive cyber bullying by kids who don’t realize the impact their words have.

The perfect day would be…

vacationing on a tropical beach relaxing with my family and having zero cell reception so that I can’t work no matter what and my kiddos can’t jump on any electronics. Quality time the old school way.

My first job was…

a summer job as the mascot of Pistol Pete’s Pizza (now Peter Piper Pizza) and I had to dress up in a full body bear costume that weighed a ton, was hotter than you could possibly imagine with no ventilation and I had to stand on the corner of the intersection dancing around in the 110 degree heat to advertise for the restaurant.

My favorite escape…

a beach – I love the sounds and relaxation of the ocean and I could watch it for hours. But I won’t dare get in it. But there’s nothing better than being in its presence.

My life…

I love discovering my own stupid human tricks. I have mastered crossing one eye while the other stays straight and I’m currently working on the finger Wiggle Waggle…wiggling my index finger without moving any other fingers. Apparently this isn’t that hard for others, but I’ve broken my fingers so many times that it’s very difficult for me but I’m going to get this skill down and then it’s on to the next.

Always…

express your love and appreciation for those close to you.

Never…

miss an opportunity to learn from your mistakes, recognize your faults and identify areas of self-improvement.

Favorite Quote…

“Do. The. Work. Every day, you have to do something you don’t want to do. Every day. Challenge yourself to be uncomfortable, push past the apathy and laziness and fear” – Tim Grover

Biggest Dream…

winning the Fitness Olympia Title.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who chew their food loud, eat ice loudly or crack their knuckles.
