What more can you do for someone?
This was written on my office wall the first week I owned Santa Cruz Strength. The idea was that if I could support the ideal training environment and gave it to members at what they perceived was a great value, I couldn't fail.
Fast forward three years.
The gym's membership doubled, its income tripled, we had members going to Nationals or Worlds in every strength sport, we continued to introduce new people to the barbell with a common sense approach that got them strong, and we became the only gym to ever host over 1,000 attendees of different strength contests and seminars in one year.
During my tenure as owner of SCS, I learned how to give people the best experience possible. I could have only done that with my 15 years of competition in strength sports and by listening to what the members needed. And now that I've sold the business, I'm building Swolebiz Presents on the things I think I do best: (1) personal training (2) event production and (3) building training programs.
I would love the opportunity to show you what more I can do for you and your gym experience.
There's no substitution for experience
I'm a firm believer that if you want to learn something new, you should seek out people who have already done it. I didn't get my credentials from a weekend certification or in commercial gyms. I lived and trained with a World's Strongest Man veteran and I competed against the best in the world when they were amateurs. I've trained with powerlifters who held innumerable state, national, and world records. I've got several of those records myself. As of this writing, I've competed in over 70 competitions in 5 different strength sports in 5 countries. I've traded the last 15 years of my life for priceless memories, trophies, records, and a couple scars.
I took my experience in strength sports and used it to get my NASM-CPT, USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach Level 1, and CrossFit Level 1.
If you entrust me with your goals, I'm going to make you stronger, fitter, healthier, and pain-free.
