I have a vision to create a program that people can understand and implement into their lives to become a happy healthy more productive person.
I am passionate about your wellness, making players better and striving for your personal best. For the past 30 years, I have been on a quest. A quest to find answers to questions and issues I had about my own wellness and subsequently sharing them with you. I learned to approach wellness in a way that encompasses mind, body and spirit.
Wellness is as specific as your thumb print and your health is the most precious commodity. Without it, we have nothing. My mission is to help you find your personalized wellness. To improve your mental, physical and spiritual wellness.
Coaching champions since the early 90’s, I have developed a holistic training method that combines physical, nutritional and mental development that gives you the ability to train like a Champion and, ultimately, compete like one. This also translates into holistic wellness training for anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle.
In 2004 I started coaching football, mentoring under Brent Melbon and working with a very talented young QB- current SF 49er Matt Barkley. My passion for coaching started over 2 decades ago in Arlington, TX as the Arlington Youth Wrestling Club Co-Founder and Head Coach. In 2 seasons, I coached 8 individual state champs and won 2 USA Texas State team titles.
Additional coaching career highlights include:
3X NCISSA State Champions at Davidson Day School with 13 All State selections and 18298 receiving yards and 240 touchdowns from 2011-2013 & 2016. Coaching 8 high school receivers that surpassed the 1000-yard plateau and a 9th at 955. I was blessed in 2013 to be part of building an Iredell County middle school powerhouse to elite status at Brawley Middle School. Starting at the 7th grade level in 2013 and creating a new culture for the entire program in 2014 which brought 6 undefeated county championships. Compiling a 44-3 record during that time.
National and State High School Records include:
- National Record 837 yards passing in a Single game.
- National Record 104 points scored.
- State Record Season Receiving Yards (NC)- 1853(2nd) & 1844(3rd)
- State Record 306 receiving yards single game, 2nd NC.
- State Record 302 receiving yards in a single game, 3rd NC.
Personally- As much as I thought I was in peak physical condition, something seemed to be holding me back. I didn’t eat bad, I took vitamins and supplements, but I didn’t treat my nutrition as a priority. In 2007, I had a stroke due to a heart defect. I had a Patent foramen ovale and it scared my family to death and almost took me there. I had a small procedure to connect the deviate septum in my heart and I was back to my old tricks. Working out, but not truly understanding the benefits of nutrition on my Wellness. My physical heart was fixed, but I needed to help my brain recover from and not exclusively the stroke, college and the 90’s didn’t help. Slowly but surely, wellness started to reveal itself to me.
Making it official, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, which gave me a true understanding that not just one wellness practice or platform will work for everyone, and helped me create a concept that gets to the root of your wellness.
In 2015, I gave up alcohol and reduced my excessive sugar intake. I learned how to manage my anxiety better with mindfulness, prayer and meditation. Learned more about how to stretch and breathe to create a less stressful life experience. I found out more about the healing effects of essential oils and, most of all, how a healthy gut will help with wellness.
In addition to the Holistic Health Coach designation from IIN, I have a BS in Organizational Leadership and Supervision from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. I grew up just north of Chicago and now live in Mooresville, NC with his wife, Tosha, and three sons, Tayton, Cullen and Tanner.
