My Story




My journey to becoming a men's health coach was a result of my own transformation. Growing up, I was always active and played all kinds of sports.


After high school I decided to join the Navy where I worked as a hospital corpsman. Between the mandatory physical training and strict weight requirements, staying physically fit was a breeze.


Like most men in their early 20s, I was able eat whatever I wanted without gaining a single pound!  Little did I know how easily things could change.


After leaving the Navy, I attended graduate school with the goal of becoming a physician assistant. PA school was very demanding, and involved sitting in lectures for hours at a time, not to mention the time spent studying after class.


As a result, I started trading my workout sessions for late night study marathons. 


After graduating from PA school, I immediately transitioned to working long and sometimes grueling hours. At that point, regular exercise was a distant memory, and my diet got worse.


As the years progressed, I developed a habit of eating fast food late at night, especially after some of my long shifts. 


During that time it seemed harmless, and I felt like I deserved a treat after working so hard. Like so many men who work long hours, it’s easy to neglect our bodies until you start to notice changes.


Over time, I started to notice that my clothes were fitting tighter, my knees were starting to hurt, and I started to experience low energy levels.

The most startling change was the fact that I wasn't as motivated as I used to be, and I honestly didn't feel too good about myself.


At that point I realized that my unhealthy eating and lack of exercise was finally catching up to me.


Out of curiosity, one day I decided to step on a scale. I was shocked to see that I was nearly 20 pounds overweight!


The worst part was the fact that as a healthcare provider, I knew better. Part of my job is convincing people to live a healthier lifestyle, yet there I was doing the exact opposite.

The birth of my daughter changed my life and  motivated me to take better care of myself.


I thought about all of the major life events that she would experience, and I wanted to be around for as many of them as possible.


In order for that to happen, I had to take action and take control of my health. Despite working over 40 hours a week, I made a commitment to get back to a healthy weight by eating healthier, and exercising more.


Making those necessary changes was no stroll in the park. It took a lot of discipline to stick to a healthier diet, and add exercise to my already hectic schedule. 


Thankfully, I was able to drop the extra weight which improved my health and strengthened my mind.


After going through my own transformation, I realized that there are so many men who are struggling with the same issues that I faced.


I decided to become a men’s health coach with a focus on helping busy men control their weight with simple steps.

Maintaining a healthy weight will not only improve your confidence, but will also decrease your risk of diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

With a focus on developing a strong mindset, balanced nutrition, and regular physical fitness, I believe that every man can improve their weight and health.


If you've been struggling with your weight and want to make a change, now is the time to take action.
