Background:

I was the kid who didn't grow up in a health conscious family or play much of sports. I took to academia and creating businesses from mowing grandma's lawn to being a paper boy for five years. My parents taught me the value of hard work and how to build things with hands and being handy. My vision for GoTimeTraining was born out of wanting to build my own path in life and helping people learn how to truly live a health minded lifestyle around nutrition. From an engineering degree to learning natural bodybuilding to dealing with my own nutrition struggles has led to building an amazing Team of passionate personal trainers and coaches.

#WhyWeLoveGoTime:

It's not only a family of clients but a Team of individuals that have dedicated their life to coaching others in living happier and healthier. We are committed to being our best selves to inspire those around us to learn and grow.

Special Interests:

Bodybuilding, cooking, traveling, and spending time outside or on the water.

Fun Fact:

I learned to juggle in 6th grade and I've very artistic. Also, it's true that I enjoy stout beers and have eaten 16 pop-tarts at once. I've even struggled with my own disordered eating (read this blog here).

Favorite Splurge Food:

I'm a foodie but if I had to pick it's likely a brownie sundae with sea salt caramel gelato, peanut butter, marshmallows, and candid bacon. A good carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is GOOD, too! :)

My Fitness Journey:

My fascination with transforming my physique began in early 2004 while studying Mechanical Engineering at Western Michigan University. I began lifting weights with a close friend and became hooked on the mental release and sense of accomplishment that working out provided. I didn’t grow up in a household centered around fitness or health (sorry Mom) and my poor lifestyle choices led to several gastrointestinal disorders. It wasn’t until I graduated and moved to Wichita, Kansas for a job in the Aerospace Industry that I fully uncovered my passion for nutrition and it’s ability to manipulate the human body.  Little did I know that all of my issues with my ‘stomach’ hinged on the fact that I had a terrible diet.

When I moved from Michigan to Kansas in January 2006 I started a new life on my own and I uncovered what happened when you mix clean nutrition, hard work in the gym, and consistency. In a few short months, I had transformed my lifestyle and lost nearly 20 pounds.  It was from that point forward that I embraced the lifestyle and now live it on a daily basis.

My passion for fitness developed into a competitive natural bodybuilding hobby in 2009 and I earned my professional status in 2012. It was this lifestyle and results that I earned for myself that allowed others to ask "can you help me, too". In 2011 GoTimeTraining was founded as a small online consulting business to help friends and family.

This small side business quickly grew and the first brick and mortar location for our personal training studio opened on May 21, 2012. In just over two years the lifestyle transformation concept grew with the results we provided clients and it allowed us the opportunity to expand.

Aside from my Engineering Degree, I also have a Master of Business Administration from Wichita State University and in September of 2012, I quit my full time job in the Aerospace Industry to work full time as the Owner & Operator of GoTimeTraining and a Wichita personal trainer.

In 2015 we committed to taking our Mission to #TransformWichita to the next level by building our own 10,500 sq-ft state-of-the-art private facility that my Team now operates within at K-96 & Greenwich.

Today I spend my time developing our Team, building the vision, and steering the mission and strategy for the company. You'll still find me at the studio daily building marketing, internal systems, and meeting with prospective clients.
