Interest in Fitness:  I have been a fitness fanatic my entire life. As a young boy my mom said I never sat down.  I started running when I was 10 years old, and since then I have only gone three weeks off without running!  I was also born with a love for competition, especially one-on-one.  I love Tae Kwon Do, kickboxing, wrestling, anything where the degree of training you do results in direct feedback to how well you perform.  My recent interest in fitness is geared at helping create a healthier population and inspiring others to choose healthy lifestyle choices like fitness and exercise for themselves.

Favorite Activities: I love doing anything outdoors.  I am a passionate gardener, I love hiking, bicycling, running, Frisbee golf, camping, and anything else.  I also love meditation, cooking great food, and sharing with others.  One of my favorite things to do is listen.  I love listening to others tell their “story” or just allowing someone to vent their feelings.

Interest in MAX10:   I created MAX10 to be a revolutionary new way to unite communities of people interested in change.  I want MAX10 to be a catalyst for people to do great things in their life.  With the energy and enthusiasm that MAX10 provides, anything is possible!

Favorite MAX10 moves:  I like the moves we do in MAX10 Advance.  They are secret so I can’t say what they are!!!


The MAX10 program’s instructors meet high expectations around training and coaching.  These instructors are experienced and educated. Becoming a MAX10 instructor is fun and rewarding!  Each instructor is qualified at 3 different levels of training and undergoes personal training with Travis Richardson.
