Serving in the Marine Corps, physical fitness is the corner stone of success for me. Training for me is both physical and mental as it has been there for me in the toughest times of my life. I started calisthenics during my first deployment to Afghanistan in 2009. Our patrol base was in a very rugged and austere environment. Myself and some of my fellow marines built a pullup and dip bar from some scrap wood. I quickly learned that you need minimal resources to be physically fit and so my journey began. I want to continue to spread the spirit of natural and functional training through tough calisthenics. REMEMBER, simple does not mean easy. I have trained countless Marines using calisthenics, being a Marine Corps Martial Arts Instructor Trainer and a Marine Corps Force Fitness Instructor has given me the opportunity to interact with many and see the results for themselves. Please follow me as we train together through tough and realistic routines. Let the grind begin.
