I started working out when I was 15, after watching “Batman Begins.” Being an impressionable teenager, the idea of absconding to a super-secret ninja training camp to become a stronger person stuck with me. That lead to me getting into football in high school, and eventually joining the Navy after researching Navy SEAL training. However, during my time in service, I realized the training itself appealed to me more than the job.
Simply put, I want to train people to “be strong to be useful,” and I acknowledge that hard work is the path to becoming a more capable human being. While setting a snatch PR is fantastic, the grit that one develops from doing difficult things transcends the gym.
