Bio: I am 26 years old. Usually on the weekends I hang out with my friends and family. I work out as much as possible. I schedule clients, because I am a personal trainer and some clients are only available on weekends. During race season I have to adjust my personal training hours to accommodate my schedule. When I was in high school I played sports. When I was growing up I was overweight and weighed around 260 lbs. Shortly after I graduated high school I joined the Army which motivated me to lose the excess weight. I ended up dropping about 90 lbs. I did one deployment for a year and came back to the United States. Shortly after I returned, and was discharged, I began working at a wine and cheese shop. While I was working there I realized that I wanted to pursue a fitness related career which allowed me to help others. Losing weight was the easiest thing for me to do and I wanted to show others how to do it based on my experience. I had an opportunity with my former Squad Leader who lived in Ocala, Florida looking for someone to help him open up a fitness studio. This was back in 2013 and I eventually moved down to Ocala to help him out. I started small, which I didn’t mind. I knew that it would take time to start working with more people. After about 1 year we took the small studio and expanded into a larger gym space. We started to meet more people, I started training a lot more people, my name started getting around, and I really enjoyed every moment. Fitness, I just enjoy it, it is very stress relieving, you get to meet a lot of people and experience a lot of different personalities. This is also why I wanted to begin doing OCRs was to meet different people and experience different personalities. It’s something I enjoy doing.
