I first started weightlifting with my father when I was a child. My interest was sparked when he and I watched Mariusz Pudzianowski dominate the “World’s Strongest Man” competition in the early 2000’s. Having been a fan of action-cartoons, comics, and video games at that age, I was amazed to see that real people could do the things my favorite heroes were doing! My father took note of my excitement and, shortly after, purchased a bench/squat rack for the house.
I trained with my father until middle-school. After which, I began training with “Coach” John McKenna to help prepare for highschool football. This is when my love for weight-training truly flourished. John Mckenna was a decorated strength-coach, the first of which to be inducted into the New Jersey Coaches Hall of Fame, but also an incredible role-model. Thanks to him and the community he created with the football team, training with my teammates became some of my best times in highschool. Beyond that, weight-lifting turned out to be one of the saving-graces of my life.
When I was in my junior year of highschool, I lost a loved-one to suicide. The event left me feeling isolated, despite the support and love of my friends and family. Training became my solace. I became obsessed with working out, and although I certainly made a lot of mistakes along the way, I will forever consider myself lucky that I became obsessed with something positive. Since that time, I’ve learned a lot about strength-training and nutrition, but even more importantly I have gained the knowledge of how positive habits can help change your life in a positive way.
My ideal-trainee would be someone looking to feel more capable. I aim to help my clients feel stronger, more athletic, and more effective in their lives.
Regardless of their goals, I feel privileged to be a facilitator in my clients’ journeys towards becoming a more fulfilled person.
