As a former “fat kid” throughout high school, I was blessed with the not-so-flattering nickname “CHUNK,” which solidified my position as the funny fat guy. After barely passing military standards to enlist in the U.S. Army, I finally started to realize that my health had become a problem. After two tours overseas and nine wonderful years in the Army, I was the physical standard for every unit in which I served.
I graduated from Mankato State University with a B.S. in Biology with a Zoology emphasis. Although working with animals is my first love, I wanted something more. Having experienced both ends of the health spectrum, I decided that helping others change their lives was my new mission.
Over the past 10 years I’ve competed and placed in the top five in national bodybuilding competitions, collected NASM, ISSA, NETA training and nutrition certificates, and amassed my own team of competitors and fitness athletes with an impeccable record.
Having held every position within the health and wellness industry, I can confidently say I have finally found my purpose and the best environment to carry out my dream of changing lives with my company Resolute Fitness.
