After graduating from university I really wasn’t sure the direction in fitness that I wanted to go. After spending a few years in the industry I realized that there was a desperate need for change. EVERYTHING could be done better (better training, better programs, better education, better layout, better equipment… etc.). There were a few other fitness professionals that I had met along the way that shared similar views but only Kari was willing to take the risk alongside with me. It has been an amazing ride with a lot of ups and some downs but I wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again tomorrow. We’ve really seen our vision come to fruition with the creation of Envision Fitness. We can see how we are changing the lives of our members and that’s truly what I’ve set out to do. I love what our gym has become. I love our team. I love our members. There’s no other place that I would rather spend my time.

 I’m somewhat of a collector of Nike bandanas and have matching bandanas for most every occasion (though I am color blind I am able to make it work for me).

My childhood was filled with endless athletic endeavors. As a youth, I competed at length in speed swimming, but also spent time competing in soccer and paddle sports. Some of my fondest memories are playing street hockey with my neighbors until we were called in by our parents because it was too dark outside. I’ve always been an active body, and have difficulty staying still for any length of time. A career in fitness was a no brainer, the only question was which stream of physical education? I explored them all while in University and graduated with far more credits than I could ever make use of. The learning has not stopped. Kari and I make a point of continued learning from the greatest minds in the industry so that we could bring it to our practice.

Over the years I’ve received accolades for athletics, education, and business, but the proudest moment that I’ve had was to be honored by our team and members in 2015 with a “Gym Owner Appreciation Day”. It gave Kari and me validation for what we’ve done and why we do it. The runner up goes to running sub 3 hours at the Boston Marathon. After falling short in two consecutive runnings the third time was a charm. Having to go back to the drawing board and start over really gave me an appreciation for the success of finally achieving my goal.

Captain America! Steve Rogers’ commitment is unwavering. Captain America epitomizes that there are no failures only lessons. Prior to Steve’s ascent into superhero-dom he failed repeatedly but his no quit attitude made Steve the only choice for the experimental Super Soldier program. The odds didn’t matter to Steve if there was an opportunity to succeed. As an individual and business owner, I take Steve Rogers values to heart. I have always been willing to take calculated risks and put in work. Failure, at times, may be unavoidable, but rather than be paralyzed by the possibility of failure I embrace the opportunity for the lessons that I can learn to better myself and the people around me.
