I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Education with a minor in Spanish from the University of Arizona. After graduating I have continued on to earn my Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) Certification through the NSCA, Precision Nutrition Level 2 Sport and Exercise Nutrition Coach, and a level 1 StrongFirst Kettlebell Instructor Certification.
I became interested in fitness after going through my own journey of losing 100 pounds in 2009. (read the entire story here)
I joined the Tucson Strength team in 2015 as coach and I am now the General Manager of the gym.
I specialize in lifestyle habit changes, nutrition education, weight management, cardiovascular fitness, and various strength training modalities. As a fitness professional, I have helped men and women lose hundreds of pounds while working with various programs through organizations like the University of Arizona, El Rio Health Services, Codac Behavioral Health Services, the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson, and various Tucson Public Schools.
During my off time I enjoy strength training in the gym, off on a trail riding my mountain bike, playing soccer, or baby proofing my home my wife Annette, for our growing family.
Over the past year I got out of my comfort zone and competed in my first triathlon and 1/2 marathon which has been a fun experience!
