My Post (3).jpg

In 1999, after suffering an injury that derailed my football ambitions, I decided that I wanted to be a trainer and concentrate on developing athletes, while simultaneously building strong, confident, competent young men and women. 


In 2005, after 6 years of study and in the trenches experience, my dream came true.  A year later, I opened my own gym, in Mansfield, Texas: "The Compound," and did exactly what I set out to do: Built an army of bad asses, with 100% of our athletes earning athletic scholarships.

In 2017, "The Gladiator Farm" was opened in Whitney, Texas, with an original focus on veterans.  Since then, we have decided to go back to our roots and make Whitney the new breeding ground of dominant athletes and those who just want to look like one.


NASM Certified Personal Trainer

LCI Certified Professional Life Coach
My mission is to help each individual become the best version of themselves both physically and mentally.  I have spent over 35 years building businesses and coaching individuals with great success.  Combining those skills with my experience in physical fitness allows me to assist others in setting and achieving their goals in many areas of their lives.  I am also a former competitive powerlifter, gym owner/trainer, and been a life-long student of self-improvement in all areas.
Fitness for Seniors became a focus for me once I learned the biggest cause of death was due to falls.  So, I set out to see what I could do to help by becoming a Senior Fitness Specialist.  As a result, my senior clients have increased their level of activity in their day-to-day lives, lost weight, increased strength, reduced risks of falling, and say they feel better overall mentally as well as physically.  It is exciting to watch the improvements and overall changes including the new sparkle in their eyes!
I enjoy training groups in order to encourage a support system in a non-judgmental environment.  Everyone makes progress together! Although, these are hard sessions, we have fun and the pay-off is…incredible results!
We are here to help you achieve your goals!
