About Austin

stretch.jpg

History:  Born and raised in Texas, I spent the majority of my time growing up, working and living in the Austin area.  After a few years of college I decided to join the US Navy where I became a Cryptologist and worked with an awesome team of Marines on the flight deck dodging helicopters. While in my cryptology school, I met Jeff who, after several early Saturday morning workouts got me hooked on physical training.  During long deployments I would workout every opportunity I got, and after about 2 years I was at my biggest, increasing my body weight from 120 lbs to a solid 200 lbs.  After the Navy I had some odd jobs and my girlfriend suggested I try doing something fitness related since I was already studying for myself.  I enrolled in a pre-med anatomy class and got my certification and started training anyone who would talk to me.  I created my signature Primal Strength class along with teaching many others at CG Arena, where I also trained individual clients.  I am now in Macon, Georgia were I teach the Beginners Weightlifting and Physical Stress Management courses at Mercer University.  I also train one on one clients at Fitness Xtreme.
