I grew up playing sports my entire life and had the opportunity to play baseball at LSU-Shreveport. After college, I started weight training on my own to keep myself active and healthy. I've trained in bodybuilding, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, and Crossfit. I have always had a passion for fitness and helping others so I decided to pursue coaching. Outside of coaching at Social Mechanics, I work as a firefighter for the Frisco Fire Department. I currently have my CF-L1 and I'm studying to complete my NASM-CPT certification.
Prior to moving to Dallas from East Texas, my wife brought me to HG Supply, and I noticed The Gym of Social Mechanics right next door. After moving to Dallas and SEVERAL trips to HG, I saw a coaching opportunity advertised on Instagram and I couldn't pass up the chance. I immediately fell in love with the community that Cristen has worked so hard to build, as well as the fun-loving atmosphere that is at the core of the gym. I feel so blessed to be a part of this community and I can't wait to see what the future holds! Facts about me: I am a DIE HARD Golden Girls fan and have the entire series on DVD. My favorite playlist while coaching or working out is the 2000s Hip Hop/Rap playlist on Spotify. I believe biscuits and sausage gravy is one of the best meals on earth.
