When did you get started with fitness?
I was a scholarship collegiate basketball player and I have always loved sports and physical activity. It’s wasn’t until my playing career had ended I took fitness seriously.
Instead of just training because I had to for sport, it became an obsession to get stronger, bigger, leaner, and healthier.
It became my new sport I loved competing with myself day in and day and it’s never stopped.
How do you stay so motivated? What drives you?
It’s my business, my career; it’s my life so for me motivation comes from within.
At one time in my life I wasn’t very healthy and didn’t take care of myself, not everything I do is calculated to ensure I feel great and truly take care of my mind & body. Health is the most important thing you have so I treat it like the gift that it is every single day!
What has been the hardest obstacle for you to overcome?
For me there have been numerous obstacles for me over the years. Ranging from various medical issues, intestinal ulcers, poor kidney function, food allergies, and having major dietary restrictions. Changing my nutritional habits was hard at first I struggled with it for years, learning what I could and couldn’t eat. Understanding that the food we eat either heals us or infects us, that for me was a big learning process and still is to this day. That sparked me creating the entire getleanglutenfree.com line of products.

Day 7 –
Based on how I feel sometimes heavy lifting, or maybe playing basketball, or running through some fun circuits with some training partners –it always varies.
My cardio typically is done on days 2 – 4 – 6 and is usually in sprint or circuit training fashion lasting no more then 20-30 minutes at the max and can be as little as 8-12 minutes based on the type of workout that is completed.
Each day also starts with some foam rolling usually between 5 – 15 minutes as well as a dynamic warm up based on the movement patterns for the day.
Give us a breakdown of your daily diet.
My nutrition plan is pretty simple for the most part.
I have been intermittent fasting for years and usually eat all my food between 2-6pm sometimes the window is bigger maybe 1pm-8pm if my day gets crazy.
I typically eat 1-2 whole food meals per day and the rest is liquid between protein shakes and green juices. I have a busy schedule so keeping the food liquid allows me more time to work and train. I typically eat my whole food meal post workout and intake a majority of my carbs post workout and some days per workout based on the session and how I am feeling.
My breakdown varies on the time of year and my goals but usually I am stick with a high protein, high fat, and lower carb outline. I am 100% gluten free 24-7-365. At this point I go by how my body feels and looks, I have a good idea of my macros but unless there is an event, shoot, or competition I am not measuring and counting every single calorie. How I feel is always the #1 thing if I feel good the rest of it works itself out.

Name a fitness “Myth” that just isn’t true no matter how many times you hear it?
“Eating every 2-3 hours speeds up your metabolism”
– so many people still believe this and live by it and the science just doesn’t support this.
