About the Guest

I grew up in a competitive household with three brothers and parents who served as our role models for hard work and discipline. Our father was a talented athlete and coach, while our mother had a strong work ethic and high pain tolerance. I was inspired by my family’s influence and began pursuing excellence in sports.

In high school, I set a goal to become the best basketball player in town, working tirelessly on my skills and developing a strong work ethic. I also discovered a passion for weightlifting and decided to focus on bodybuilding, eventually gaining 30 pounds of muscle. Later, I returned to basketball and became a strong player despite my height.

In college, I studied under a renowned sports nutritionist and developed my theories on training and nutrition. I also competed in bodybuilding and achieved success. However, I faced a two-year stomach disease that led to a significant loss of muscle mass but eventually overcame it through a combination of mindset, nutrition, and training.

I emphasized the importance of the mind and spirit in my approach to training and coaching. I encountered various mentors throughout my life, including a successful bodybuilder named Tim Martin. These mentors played a significant role in my development as “The Human Strength Expert.”

I have overcome challenges, including a near bout with Crohn’s disease and a severe knee injury. I’ve been nominated as “Author of the Year” for a top fitness website and attribute my success to my focus, mentors, and training philosophy.

In the present day, I continue my quest to discover the “truth” behind human physical potential, accumulating knowledge from various sources. I run Newell Strength, recognized as a top fitness training facility, and remain dedicated to helping athletes and individuals achieve their full potential.
