One of the reasons I wanted to start GO: Sports is I want to give young athletes a better way of training than is being offered. I nurture athletes that need it, and push the ones that need to be pushed.
I have always been an athlete, in one way or another. I was a multi-sport athlete in Junior High and High School. Then in college, I decided to participate in Martial Arts. I soon gained many national championships in Kung Fu, Traditional Chinese Grappling, and in Full Contact. (The precursor to MMA)
In 1996, in Beijing, China, I placing fourth in the world, just three months after a total knee reconstruction, I became the conditioning coach for the team that went to Paris for the next year’s tournament. I placed first in the heavyweight category in the World Shuai-Chiao Grappling Championships, and second in the World Boke (pronounced Bõk – ah) Mongolian Wrestling Championships.
After achieving that, I decided to test myself in Strongman. I formed one of the first successful strongman training system. I went on to be the only person to ever win North America’s Strongest Man contest 2 times as a heavyweight. I then turned professional as a Lightweight Pro Strongman. I also used the GO: Sports system to train the only winner of “The World’s Strongest Man” contest from the United States in 30 years.
I have trained, Pro, Olympic, College, High School, Junior High, and Elementary aged athletes. Nothing makes me feel more fulfilled than seeing the confidence and success that becoming a better athlete can bring, at any age.
