By education and professional history, I am a Sports Scientist with over 30 years of experience in gyms and athletic training centers. My mission is to disseminate and produce science-backed muscle performance-related content to professionals.
I hold a PhD in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Austin and an MS in Exercise Science from Florida State University. My career started in boxing and sparked my earliest interest in timing and muscle performance that later served as the idea for the book Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance (Human Kinetics, 2020) published in English, French, German, Chinese, and Spanish.
From 1997 to 2001, I worked with professional boxers in Texas, Mexico, and Las Vegas, Nevada, and during that time documented a program that earned 3rd place of 411 trainers in Met-Rx World’s Best Trainer Competition. My professional experiences also include former Sport Sciences faculty at Florida State University and former Program Director for Sports Sciences & Management at the American Military University (AMU). I have published over 35 continuing education programs and still counting!
Honored to be a part of the sports and fitness profession, it has been a wonderful life in the gyms, training centers, and classrooms. Blessed to live in fabulous Las Vegas, I live with my son, Aiden, Jimbug, a Chihuahua mix and our cat, Minnie.
Dedicated to helping people understand and utilize muscle physiology research, I am here to help you and would love to hear from you. Please contact me by email at [email protected].
