Owner & Personal Trainer
I’ve been involved in sports since the age of five. My first love was gymnastics, where I participated In the Prairie State Games and took home the Gold. So I’ve been a Gold Medalist since 5! My daughter would laugh at that, because I always say I’ve been doing things since I was 2 years old.
In middle school, I played multiple sports. In baseball, I started at 3rd base because I had the speed and IQ to chase down a runner going for home plate. Occasionally, I also played 1st base. In Basketball I started at point guard, but I also liked playing the shooting guard position because my jump shot was automatic. In Football, I was a defensive end. I had so much speed coming off that end they couldn’t stop me!
During my High School career I was captain in three sports: Football, Track and Wrestling. I went to the State Championship for two sports; Track and Wrestling. I was named as one of the top 20 athletes, which posted in several newspapers. I’ve been coined “Mr. Excitement”, featured in GridIron Great magazine and also received a 4-year scholarship to play collegiate football.
While playing collegiate football, I studied Entrepreneurship and received my Bachelors of Science in Business. The class that steered me down this path was Entrepreneurship 101. That is where ATHLETIC SPA was developed and launched. That class started it all! I found a purposeful way to give back to the youth, the everyday joe as well as athletes looking to take it to the next level. What I’ve learned and experienced over the many years of playing sports, is the importance of proper nutrition, the symmetric alignment and function of the body and the significance of a strong mind to will you to success. ATHLETIC SPA is a vehicle to fulfill my passion of health and fitness while helping others to sculpt and condition their bodies and mold their confidence.
