“You can run, but you’re afraid of the ball.” Thus ended my tryout for the high school soccer team, lo those many years ago. Any sport that involves a net or a ball, fuhgeddaboutit.
But stuff that merely requires maxing out VO2 and a capacity to suffer… that’s right up my alley. That is, oxygen fed sport. I fell hard for trail running and cross-country ski racing.
Like many endurance athletes, initially I paid scant attention to strength training. But over time, I realized that lifting weights and increasing strength was integral to a strong finishing kick.
After time as a stay-at-home dad, I was ready for a career change and earned my personal trainer certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Between the science and art of functional strength, and over 20 years’ experience as an endurance athlete, I look forward to helping you achieve your fitness goals!
