I live by the words Endure, Overcome, Domination. These words have become my personal philosophy, inspiring me to create my own success in life, training and business. This philosophy took form when my father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. After more than a year of treatment and unwavering perseverance on his behalf, my father was lost to this disease. From that point on it has been my personal mission to create something of value for others that motivates and encourages action. With each article or workout that I write I hope to provide readers with simple and effective concepts that they can easily apply to their training and lives.
My younger brother Anthony and I own and operate 3 fitness related companies. In addition to Kettlebell Cardio, we have created Hybrid Athlete and Race Day Domination. Individually, we are just regular guys with good ideas, together we form some kind of super-human capable of creating and taking a product or program to market overnight.
