I grew up seeing the crushing effect his injury had on his aspirations firsthand. It inspired me to prevent that kind of personal tragedy for others. Even as a young promising martial arts combatant, I suffered the effects of improper training.
On a few significant occasions, I failed to take into account the importance of peak physical and mental preparation while competing at the national level. If I had a better understanding of effective strength and conditioning modalities, I know I could have gone farther than I did.
I aim to right that wrong every day by giving my clients the best physical and mental training knowledge possible. I serve best by helping to protect and empower young aspiring athletes with every session taught.
