I grew up playing multi-sport; baseball, hockey, rugby. I wasn’t much for training in the gym until I suffered knee injury in my senior year of high school playing rugby. I spent all my time in the gym after that and particularly found an interest in strength sports.
I became a certified personal trainer in 2005 and began helping people transform their bodies and minds through strength training. It was at this time that I also started competing regularly in Powerlifting.
I have taken a variety of certifications over the last 16 years and obtained a college diploma in Exercise Science and Sport Management but the greatest lessons I have learned have been the ones in the weight room, experimenting in my own practice.
In 2014, I suffered a bicep injury which led me to a dark place. Prior to the injury I was working towards getting on an international stage in powerlifting and had devoted all my time to this goal.
I came out of the recovery realizing that I had developed an extremely poor body composition and that my movement capacities were limited from training. I knew I had to make real change in my flexibility.
I dropped all traditional methods of training and started exploring the depths of what I didn’t know. I sought out disciplines that required higher degrees of flexibility such as Gymnastics, and Circus Training and began applying these concepts.
After three years of hard devoted training, I developed a full Front Split, Side Split, Pancake Split, Head 2 Toe, and a decent Back Bridge.

Range of Strength removes the ego.
You don’t just train for strength, you train for the range in your strength!
A system of flexibility training that is not dissociated from strength training!
It’s the psychological shift you need to pursue real results in improving your movement capacity!
I train 5-6 days a week currently. Squatting is like riding a bicycle for me so I always start with squats, usually rotating front and back squat variations and auto regulating the volume.
I do some stretching everyday whether its an exploring type of stretch limbering through how my body is feeling or a deeper stretching session moving into big positions like the splits and back bends.
