Throughout my childhood and teenage years, I always struggled with my weight. Although I was very active, I was always a very big kid. Towards the end of high school at St. Thomas Villanova, I was very active in football as a defensive lineman and I realized that my weight was definitely taking a toll on me mentally and physically. I knew I had to make a change.
I started my fitness journey by setting goals for weight loss but also for a complete lifestyle change. Day in and day out, I continued to exercise, eat a hell of a lot less and made better choices in my diet. Not knowing really where to start, I joined a gym and was trying to learn as much as I could to lose every pound and get healthier.
At my heaviest, I weighed 309lbs with a 52” waist and I am now 198lbs! That transformation totally pushed me into this fitness industry to help motivate and inspire people to do better for themselves, their family and their future.
I have been active in the fitness industry since 2005 and my life experience and knowledge stem from being a fireman and having completed several fitness certifications including Can Fit pro and NCCPT. My passion is for helping people in my career as well as in the gym and I hope that my story inspires others to make healthy changes to transform their lives.
