My background is a bit different from most. Growing up my mom was opposed to us working out. To this day I still do not know why. I remember wanting a Soloflex so bad I almost cried. I played baseball in high school and a little semi-pro ball, but never trained with weights with any regularity. Once an injury ended my baseball career I needed to find another outlet. A friend of mine got me to the gym I found out that I had a little bit of natural strength. I think country strong is the official term for it.
I started off training for bodybuilding, reading Flex and Ironman religiously. You remember magazines don’t you?! But it became painfully obvious that I was not cut out for that. Though I could gain muscle rather quickly, fat always came along for the ride. Then one day I read something by Louie Simmons. I had no idea who he was at the time. The first thing that jumped out at me was the science behind his method. I have always been a fan of science and math, so when he combined that with my new found interest in strength training I was all over it. After that I realized that there was an entire sport devoted to strength called Powerlifting. The thing I came to love about powerlifting was that goals and progress were very concrete. You always knew where you stood. Either the bar moved or it didn’t.
I became a Strength and Conditioning Coach and founded Mammoth Strength in 2001. I discovered a true passion for helping athletes reach their goals. I have been training athletes of all levels for 12 years now, and I am always learning new things. That is the best part about working with new clients is that they teach you as much as you teach them. Welcome to my site, and I hope that my team can help you reach your goals.
