As a trainer, I strive to have a positive, strong impact on my client's lifestyle. I want and will do everything in my power to make sure my clients benefit from every aspect of training with me. I’m always asking myself, “how can I add more value to my client’s sessions?”. With this guiding thought, my creative side kicked in and thus Living Amped was born. On July 1st, 2011 I filed a DBA with the city and made it official. Living Amped, my training company, is dedicated to helping educate, encourage and motivate others in the benefit of leading a healthy lifestyle by providing beneficial and essential coaching to those of need. Living Amped offers a variety of different training options.
About the time Living Amped all started to come together, a friend of mine asked me to be a core coach for his new gym/facility, 5 Fitness Training & Yoga. I told him about my company and my desire to make it a well known program, not just in

Mid September 2011 I was presented with a non-compete from The Hills. In my decision not to sign it, October 3rd, 2011 quickly became my last day at The Hills; 3 weeks short of my 5 year anniversary. The Hills took a chance on me out of college and for that I will be eternally grateful. However, sometimes it just takes a little shove to confirm that you are doing the right thing.
5 Fitness is currently in the process of being built. The building/space is there, we are waiting on permits so we can make bigger moves, but it is moving right along. Once the permits are approved, it will be a quick 4 week build out. Until then, the owner has secured a space just down the sidewalk for us core trainers to train our clients. I will be training out of this temporary space starting October 4th, 2011.
On Sunday October 30th, 2011 1500 runners, including myself took on the Run For the Water race. My training went like this. On a few (more more than 5) pretty days in the past few weeks Duker and I ran 3ish miles around the neighborhood to take advantage of the day. However I continued to do my normal .com crosfit workouts withe the 1pm crew. According to Jen (in pic above) we finished in 1:23 with negative splits! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! Notice there was no 8-9mi run during the week. I will have more pain after I eat my treat (Amy's icecream) they I did post race. I owe it all to the crossfit style training. It is without a doubt the best way to train for anything that life dishes to you; "train for the unknown".
