Hometown: Beaumont, TX
Credentials/Certification: ACE (Personal Training), DSW (Kinetic Anatomy &Winning Sports Nutrition), AMFPT (Personal Training & Sports Nutrition)
Major(s)/Degree(s): Geoinformatics- the study of Geology, Computer Science and Geographic Information Systems
Experience/Expertise: Over 20 years experience as a trainer/nutritionist and almost 40 years bodybuilding. Worked 10 years at a hospital-based wellness center working with people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases, taking up where their doctors left off and teaching them the importance of exercise and nutrition for conquering their illness and overcoming the side effects of medication.
Philosophy: My goal is to give people the tools they need to achieve the greatest quality of life for as long as possible through a combination of strength, endurance, and flexibility, while teaching them the importance of eating clean, balanced nutrition. I have what could best be described as a fundamentalist approach toward training, in that I break the body into nine individual muscle groups and target each group specifically. Whether the goal is weight loss, toning, endurance or all out muscle building I believe that specifically targeting each of these areas on a weekly basis yields the greatest return for the least amount of work.
Hobbies/Interests: Martial Arts, Music, and Technology. I have a passion for music and teach jazz piano, jazz guitar, music theory, and music production.
