I have spent my entire life pursuing and enjoying the active lifestyle. In high school and college I competed in various sports, followed by competing in adventure racing, mountain biking, the Crossfit Games, and various obstacle courses in my adult life. It is through this varied background that I have come to develop my intense and focused style of training.
I started out as a high school physical education teacher and coach of basketball and volleyball for 9 years, was a US Army Reserves Military Police Officer for 6 years, and then became a full time personal trainer in 2000. I am a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA, certified Spartan SGX Coach, certified Obstacle Course Specialist, Level 1 Crossfit Trainer, and a certified Kettlebell and TRX instructor.
My passion for what I do lies in helping people discover not only the potential in the performance of their physical bodies, but also finding the strength that lies within to face all challenges life may bring. Everyone has a little “IronWolf” within…we all just have to “experience the challenge” to breathe life into it.
Mazie is my new “trainer in training” at the gym. She’s there with me daily, enjoying all the fantastic toys we have to play with there. So far, her top picks are the sled drive, kettlebells, bosu ball, and the battle rope. She is having a blast making new friends with her pack at IronWolf Training and learning everything that comes her way! She also is big into napping and shows us all how to completely relax amongst the chaos.
The Strength of the Wolf
The spirit of the Wolf resides in my heart
Mostly peacefully, yet ever wild
Running in time to the blowing wind
Dancing in the clouds that drift in the Heavens.
The spirit of the Wolf resides in my soul
Longing to hear the song of the Great One
Striving to be that which I am in my natural state
Succeeding only because of the Love that the Universe grants me.
