Ogden, UT , United States
I am a normal guy who happens to love triathlon and found that this sport saved my life. Just like many of you reading this - I am a busy spouse, a parent trying to juggle being healthy with everyday life. I have 5 children and a full-time job. I have found a way to manage all of this and go from 300 pounds to 165 and be competitive within my age group.
I am like many of you out there. I am a busy spouse and parent trying to juggle life, work, and triathlon. The majority of my life was spent doing nothing other than eating and watching TV. Over time I weighed 300 pounds and found myself having Type II Diabetes (all by the age of 34). I looked into the mirror and decided that I did not want to die nor live the life that I was living. It was then I found triathlon and this sport has saved my life. I discovered that I could live a healthy lifestyle and have fun in the process with triathlon. I lost my weight and truly got into much better health. I dove into the sport into topics such as training styles, techniques, methods, nutrition. This knowledge brought me to coaching. I obtained by USA Triathlon Coaching License and have really loved sharing this sport with others.
