My story

I identify as an athlete. I identify as a marathoner, an Ironman, an Ultra runner, a Lacrosse player, and much more.

But I didn’t always.

Growing up I was slow and lacked athleticism. I often came behind kids with asthma in wind sprints, and dropped passes in routine ball drills. But I couldn’t help it, I loved sports.

I loved running around, hanging with friends, and I always wanted to be a ‘real’ athlete.

That’s when I fell in love with ‘the work’.

I learned, early on, that with the proper mix of training, determination, intelligent recovery and nutrition, if you remained committed to the work and the process, you could achieve anything.

For the last 15 years I’ve been personally helping others achieve some of their biggest life goals in the realm of endurance sports, strength and nutrition. Everything that gets put on this website is designed specifically to help those who are ready to do something amazing, but aren’t sure where to start.

My accomplishments:

  • Ironman Finisher
  • 70.3 Ironman Finisher
  • USA National Olympic Triathlete
  • 2:55 Marathoner (Boston qualified)
  • 350lb Back Squat
  • 265lb Clean & Jerk -- 210lb Snatch

My values:

The small (but mighty list) of things I firmly believe and live by.

  1. Publicize the goal

    A goal that only lives in your head - contains no accountability. At least tell 1 person whom you trust what you're hoping to achieve. Simply the act of speaking it aloud creates a bond to the goal, and accountability towards chasing it that no internal thought can replicate.

  2. Become obsessed

    No great thing was every accomplished by someone mildly interested in it. It has to become a core thought - something that can't escape your brain. Obsess over the details, all of them.

  3. Build a success routine

    Make the 'first' thing you need to do, stupid simple. Have trouble waking up in the morning for an early workout? Make your first goal simply to take the covers off. Then feet on the floor. Then teeth brushed. Baby steps get you moving, and an object in motion, stays in motion.

  4. Win the 6 inch battle

    Nobody is going to train for you. There will be days where that little voice inside will do everything it possibly can to tell you to skip a workout, sleep in, rest one more day. The key to it all? Find a way to overcome that and win the battle in the 6 inches between your ears.
