In June 2008, I committed myself to some lofty fitness goals and I chose a training program that I believed would work. By January 2011, I was in the best shape of my life. I was stronger, leaner and better-conditioned, and I had forged an indomitable mentality. The only problem was that I had plateaued across all fitness metrics and yet I was still hungry for my elusive, initial goal: consistency and congruence across the board. Don’t get me wrong: I progressed in a few arenas here and there, but often these came at the expense of another benchmark, which slipped back. My lifestyle didn’t always align with my mission. I began to seek answers and quickly thereafter, found a mentor in James Fitzgerald of OPEX in Scottsdale, Arizona. After years of experimenting, applying, learning and then tweaking the OPEX principles, I established my own fitness entity here in Austin: Central Athlete, which I founded with partner Jeremy Thiel, in 2015. Central Athlete is the confluence of my experiences (both positive and negative), proven strength and conditioning principles and an evolving set of holistic ideas that are centered around the client. Our company was founded with results at the forefront of our vision. We utilize the principles of Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral techniques in the service of our work with clients. Our goal is to walk with individuals as they create their own definition of fitness—one that fits them uniquely—and design a training program that will help them get there through consistent work, mindfulness, implementing sound nutritional practices and, equally important, aligning their lifestyle with our common goals. We offer: One-on-One On-Site Training Remote Coaching Nutritional Services I take great pride in watching our clients succeed. If there is anything I can personally assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Also remember to Be Unique.
