Weaned on almond hulls and taco truck food while growing up in rural Northern California, I developed a passion for fitness while playing football in high school. (Un)fortunately, I also developed an affinity for food (see above). After high school, I gained a significant amount of weight, and shortly after seeing a picture of myself looking rather rotund, I decided it was time to learn how to eat and train properly. I have traveled a few different paths in my fitness journey. I first traveled the bodybuilding path and trained in this fashion for roughly five years. I began extensive research into nutrition and the best ways to achieve a lean and healthy physique. Now, I spend my days toiling in the depths of squatting, bench pressing, and deadlifting in my never-ending pursuit to lift something heavy, and set it back down. I firmly believe in becoming the strongest version of yourself you can be, while taking a sustainable and healthy approach to your dietary habits.

All of the information I’ve gathered in my fitness pursuits allows me to help my clients (you!) achieve their goals. From helping turn a client into a pro bikini competitor, to helping four people qualify for World Championship Powerlifting competitions, I know I can help you achieve whatever your little (or big) heart desires.

U.S. Marine Major Megan Malia Leilani McClung of Orange County, California assigned to I Marine Expeditionary Force as the Marine Corps head of public affairs for Al Anbar Province was killed on December 6, 2006, when a massive improvised explosive device (IED) destroyed McClung’s Humvee, instantly killing McClung and the other two occupants. McClung was the first female Marine officer to be killed in the Iraq war, as well as the first female graduate of the United States Naval Academy to be killed in action since the school was founded in 1845. She is survived by her parents Mike and Re McClung.

Ideally, this is done as a partner workout, but can be done alone. The first number is the distance/reps/cals if you’re doing this workout solo; the second number represents the distance/reps/cals if done with a partner. If done as a partner workout, both people run together and the rest of the movements can be split however the team likes.

The Victim or The Conquerer. Your Choice.

It's up to you to improve your body composition. No one is going to do it for you. Now, I'm not talking about true obese people. It's easy for fit folks or average Joe's to say, "Being morbidly obese is because people are lazy." That's about as far from fair as it gets. People in that condition have a lot of factors working against them. This article by Dr. Spencer Alan sheds some light on that. Generally speaking, severe obesity is largely caused by socioeconomic factors and mental and emotional issues. A very honest and heart wrenching video from this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7iTP-HaoFg

Again, I'm not referring to those people. I'm referring to people from easy upbringing; no monetary concerns/issues; plenty of free time, etc. Most of you. You have no excuses.
