First and foremost, I'd like to thank all of those who have helped me along the way. I've worked hard and I'm confident that I've done everything on my end, but I also realize that I've been blessed with the right opportunities, at the right time, with the right people.
- Family - My wife has supported me since day 1, even when I was leaving a good paying job to pursue a career that had no immediate rewards. She has been my driving force and my foundation since the day I met her. She's made countless sacrifices to allow me to go after opportunities such as education workshops, travel training, and there's no way I could have done it without her. I've also had the support of a great family that encouraged me to go for it and was quick to brag about my success.
- Sport &Health, Explosive Performance - This team has allowed my to develop and grow as a trainer and as a person. I've learned a lot of valuable lessons and forged some lasting friendships with people like Kevin Boyle (EP Director), Rhys Gully (Site Director), and many others. There is a saying .."you are the average of your 5 closest friends". My friends at EP have made me better and I only hope that I do the same for them.
- The Athletes - many of the athletes could train anywhere in the world and they choose to train with me. That's an opportunity that I cherish and I thank them for it. Some of the guys that really helped me get my name out there include Graham Gano, Lorenzo Alexander, and Antwaan Randle El. They are more than just clients, they've become close friends of mine and I can't thank them enough. I'd also like to thank the parents who have entrusted me with their children. As a parent myself, I know what that means. Thank you to the coaches who have given me the opportunity to work with their teams and become a part their success story. Thank you to the physical therapists, doctor, chiropractors, etc. who have referred their clients on to me because they know I will take care of them. Thank you to Ray Wright and Chad Englehart for giving me an opportunity to fulfill my dream of working with The Washington Redskins.
I am truly humbled by all the blessings that have been given to me. It has been a truly rewarding experience.
