Hi!  My name is Aaron.  I have been involved in personal fitness for 30 years.  It all started when I was about 16 and wanted to get stronger.  I bought a set of Olympic weights and a bench and read all I could about strength training.  I learned about nutrition and periodization and began creating my own workout programs.  When I hit my 30s, I had started powerlifting.  But my plans to compete were cut short by a shoulder injury.  So for the next few years I stopped lifting weights and focused on golfing...and drinking beer.  Although my weight didn't change much, my body composition did.  

Then one day I looked in the mirror.  I mean I really looked at myself.  And I realized that my gut was sticking out well beyond my chest, and couldn't walk up a set of stairs without breathing hard.  I knew that I had to do something different.  So in the fall of 2012 I started cycling.  In the spring of 2013 I completed my first race.  In 2014 I tackled my first triathlon and was hooked.

I have since completed several sprint and olympic distance triathlons, placing in my age group in some.  I have also raced several running races including the 5k, 10k and 1/2 marathon distances.  And yes, I lost the weight and transformed my body in the process.

I am currently training for a 1/2 Ironman and a marathon.

Strength training and endurance sports are very similar in the way that workouts are put together.  So in 2017, I decided to put my knowledge to use in helping others.  I studied to become a certified triathlon coach through ITCA, and started my own coaching business.

Now I would like to help you transform yourself!
