Pursuit of Happiness


This week is the start of a new journey – a risky decision, a challenge, and even more so a pursuit of happiness. Approximately one month ago from today, I made a decision. In order to make the decision, I had to ask myself; What inspires me? What drives me to be a better person? What will allow me the freedom to fulfill my passions? The answer, coaching others to do the same!

As of June 5th, 2017 – I will be working as a full time, self employed – Performance Coach and Personal Trainer. After three years as a youth sports and fitness coach/director and personal trainer (on the side), I am making the jump to do what I set out to do in 2012 – help athletes and clients develop to their fullest potential.

This is the start of Raising The Bar Performance – where I will hold each athlete/client accountable to their goals, help them develop a mindset that allows them to give 100% in and out of the weight room, and show them that their potential is beyond what they once thought.

This is also the start of my competitive career in PowerLifting. In 3 days, I will step on the platform for the first time and aim to go 9 for 9. My current PR’s stand as follows: Squat – 235 (107 KG), Bench Press – 145 (67 KG), and Deadlift – 245 (111 KG). I’ve spent 16 weeks preparing for this day and know that going in, I’ve given 100%.

And lastly, but most importantly, this is the start of a very exciting chapter!

As a coach I promise to:

  1. Set each athlete/client up to succeed through realistic and appropriate goal setting.

  2. Be honest and up front with each athlete/clients potential.

  3. Provide proven knowledge and resources that will aid in each athlete/clients ability to succeed.

Let the journey begin and as always thanks for reading!
