Sports and exercise have always been a huge part of my life. I played my first basketball game at age 6, and have tried just about every sport on the planet -- save golf and croquet. Being a large, hefty lad (currently standing at 6' 6" and weighing 275 lbs), I am passionate about weights, cycling, running, sprint training, and practicing martial arts. I'm currently a green belt in Karate, Taekwondo, Hapkido, and kickboxing, and work hard to take my skills to the next level. Fitness and health are my passion, and I love writing and sharing what I know. I am a certified Professional Trainer and always looking for ways help others meet their health and fitness goals.
