What got you into training/working out? 

In February 2014 I was 100 pounds overweight and it really began to affect my health. The Dr. wanted me to start all sorts of medication. I decided I didn't need that, and I could fix the problems by getting off my butt. 

When did you start training at MSC?

I started at MesserFit in February of 2016. 

If you could only take one exercise to a deserted Island for a year what would it be? 

I hate them, but it would probably be burpees!

What is your favorite exercise? 

I like the deadlift. I'd never done them prior to learning at MesserFit. 

What exercise are you working on perfecting currently? 

I'm slowly improving my power cleans. 

How does your first workout at MSC compare to your training experience now?

My first workout I thought I was in pretty good shape. I quickly found out I was not! Now I look forward to the challenge of learning new things and getting stronger! 

What is your favorite band? 

If I had to pick one it would be Van Halen. 

A penguin walks into the room you're in right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he there? 

What's up bro..how much do you bench?

What do you work towards in your free time? 

Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Skiing, and generally trying to be a better human.
