What to Expect
I offer passion and energy but most importantly a system to get results each time.
Born in Chicago on the South Side I grew up in a rough neighborhood. Wanting to escape my surroundings I fought hard each day and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Illinois. I faced many challenges as a student but overcame and graduated leaving my print behind. I left Illinois a 9x Big 10 Champion and 4x NCAA All American. I continued running professional in California for Nike Athletics and later the Santa Monica Track Club. After 5yrs as a Pro Athlete I formed my own company VAST Sports Performance where we helped adults and athletes reach their goals. My family and I later moved to Tampa, Fl starting over from 0 to rebuild our business. We were successful and never gave up and after only a little over a year my wife and I were offered positions at the University of Georgia. I was the Associate Strength and Conditioning Coach for Football where we went to the SEC Championship Game and fell short to Alabama. After 3 seasons at Georgia we left to come back to Tampa and rebuild our business training adults and athletes. In less than 4 months we were able to bounce back training over 40 Clients per day.
Now firmly placed in Tampa my purpose in life is to not only build people up physically but to also impact them mentally to be great and achieve any goal with focus and determination.
