I was born and raised in Southern California and joined the US Army when I was 18. I have served over 17 years and have gotten the chance to travel all over the world. I have been married to my beautiful wife since 2004.
The US Army opened my eyes to fitness but something was missing from what they prescribed and the typical gym bodybuilding sessions never held my interest. I found CrossFit in 2008 while deployed in Iraq and instantly knew it was something special. After a couple of years of following the CrossFit I wanted to spread my knowledge and start training others with the strength and conditioning program I believe to be the best out there. I have been training people to become stronger, faster, and more importantly healthier for over 5 years.
At the end of 2015, the original owners of SolaFide offered Nicole and I the chance to purchase the gym and we jumped at it. We wanted to keep providing the same service the community we have grown to know and love. I love the look on someone’s face when they PR a lift or when they finally get the first rep of a skill they have been working on. This is what drives me to keep learning and training athletes.
