I coached both the Arizona State University and University of Arizona Boxing Clubs 1995-2001. In that period I had over 300 fighters enter the ring and compete in USA Boxing sanctioned events. While coaching the kids at his gym in Phoenix, I also competed in and won local single elimination boxing tournaments several times including the Ultimate Boxing Contest, Rage in the Cage, King of the Ring and many other elimination fights. I moved from Arizona to Illinois to be closer to my parents who both had terminal cancer.

While in Illinois I trained for and competed in the Ironman Competition in Madison, Wisconsin and many other long distance events including century rides, marathons and even the World Famous 50 kilometer ski race, the Birkenbinder. I entered the United States Navy after September 11, 2001, and have proudly served ever since. I was certified by the military to perform as the Command Fitness Leader. I am a USA Boxing certified coach. With my unique background I crafted my own style of fitness that is one of a kind and works for all fitness levels.
