I take my health and fitness seriously. I had let myself go for a few years, and decided enough was enough. So I started eating right and started the popular workout programs by Beachbody. I had great success with them, and became a Team Beachbody Coach so that I could mentor others just like me who were trying to make healthier choices in life.
With my newfound fitness, I decided to further my goals. When I was younger, I was on the cross country team. I was horrible at it. So I decided to give running another try. This came much easier than when I was in middle school. So, I decided to add two more sports, swimming & cycling. Spent 2010 learning the ropes, and competed 2 sprint triathlons and 1 olympic distance triathlon. I liked it so much, I became an active member in the Louisville Landsharks Multisport, and board member (Secretary).
While doing all of this training, I became a “go to” guy with my friends, family, and coworkers with fitness and weight loss. Because of this, it was suggested that I become a “Wellness Champion” at work. I would promote the wellness programs that the company had rolled out, to make sure that everyone was well educated on what was available.
I am studying to become a certified personal trainer so that I can work directly with people who want to improve their health and fitness. I am hoping to have this complete by the end of January 2011. I attended the USA Track & Field Level 1 coaching seminar, to become a certified Track & Field coach also at the end of January.
