What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Uplift · Empower · Expose: The ideas I base this website and newsletter on are the same ones I use to try to be a good dad.  If I can encourage and stand by my girls when they struggle, teach them to be strong and empowered through continual acquisition and application of knowledge, and try like heck to steer them away from obvious misinformation while they develop, perhaps I will have done my job.  It is with this same care I will attempt to bring you quality information.

Author and leadership expert John Maxwell is famous for saying, "No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care".  It has been my experience that this is very much the case.  I hope you benefit greatly from our content because I assure you it comes from a place of genuine concern for your well-being.  Still, it helps to have a little background in a subject area if you're going to be preaching about it...so here is mine.      

Brian has been involved in the fitness industry for the last sixteen years.  He has been a personal trainer, fitness business owner, writer, and speaker.  His education includes a Bachlors' degree in Exercise Science, a Masters degree in Developmental Kinesiology with a specialization in Biomechanics, and he maintains a National Strength and Conditioning Association certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

In addition to coaching hundreds of individual clients to reach new levels of health and physical fitness, Brian has served as an expert source for many various media outlets including IVillage.com, Women's Health, Shape.com, Max Muscle Magazine, Muscle and Fitness.com, CIO Magazine, Sheknows.com, OnFitness Magazine, NextAvenue.org, SkinnyMom.com, Patch.com, Yahoo Health, and the local FOX and CBS affiliate stations in the Charleston, SC market.
