How and when did you start training?

I started training my freshman year in high school when I was on the highschool wrestling team. Being a part of the wrestling team is what introduced me to the gym. During my four years on the team I began to fall in love with the weight room. When I graduated and went off to college, that’s when I began to take my training to the next level.

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

Biggest mistake was my huge ego and my belief that I knew everything about training. I was so closed-minded and trained my ego instead of my body.

We know consistency is key, what tips would you give to anyone struggling to stay consistent?

My biggest tip to staying consistent would be to find your purpose. Those who have a strong purpose for what they do will stick to the plan of action because they want it bad enough. A weak purpose lacks consistency.

Do you listen to music whilst training?

Absolutely, I generally listen to rock/metal music during my workouts. Right now, I am currently listening to bands such as Disturbed, 3 Days Grace, Crossfade, and Trapt.

What do you think about when you have to dig deep and push out that last rep?

I think about something that severely pisses me off. Could be anything.

How far ahead do you plan and prepare ahead your nutrition and training if at all?

My training regimen is planned day by day. It all depends on how I am feeling that day.
My nutritional regimen stays the same unless I make adjustments along the way. I generally cook in bulk. So I prep my meals for 3-4 days then I’ll prep my meals again once I get through the 3 – 4 days.

What are you most proud of?

Inside the gym: Being able to teach/ assist people on training.

Outside the gym: Being able to inspire others to achieve their goals whether it be fitness related, work related, school related, etc.

Do you bulk and cut or stay lean year round?

I generally stay lean year round.

What types of cardio do you do?

To be honest, I do very little cardio. Cardio of choice is HITT training on a Stairmaster or bike.
