I went to Iraq as part of the US Army in 2005. While going through the process of deployment, I became depressed and completely out of shape. My roommate, a gym rat, took me under his wing and showed me how to work out and eat properly. I devoted that year of deployment to being the best Soldier I could be while living a healthy lifestyle.

It completely changed my body, my attitude and my life; I never would have made it through the deployment without my friend. When I returned from Iraq I graduated college and started personal training as a way to pay it forward and change other peoples lives the way my friend did for me. Helping people reach their goals and changing their lives is one of the more fulfilling things I have ever done and it motivates me everyday to become a better trainer.
