I am a local guy. I was born in New Bern, NC and moved to Wilmington when I was 5 years old. The most important aspects of my life are God and my family. I have a beautiful wife Melody and we have 2 sons and a daughter. Aiden, Noah, and Bella. Outside of God and my family, I have devoted my life to learning about health, fitness, and the human body. Through this dedication to learning, I feel that I have obtained an education of the highest quality to serve you. I completed my undergraduate studies locally at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education and Health with a Concentration in Exercise Science. Since graduating, I have continued my education through completion of my Master of Science degree in Kinesiology. I have also completed nationally accredited certifications as a Certified Exercise Physiologist, a Level 1 USA Weightlifting Coach, and I am a Master Instructor for Kettlebell Concepts. All education aside, I LOVE WHAT I DO!
