Are you old enough to remember the “Husky” sizing back in the day? I was the poster child. Although I was very athletic, playing football and baseball, even a season of basketball, as a kid, I was always very heavy. I had several opportunities to seize a healthy lifestyle, through college ball and hockey, the US Army and then later through the Police Academy, but never married nutrition with my activity level.
Having been a youth coach, coached high school football, been the lead fitness instructor for my regiment in the Army and then on to become a Law Enforcement Fitness Instructor, one thing remained true…I LOVE seeing people exceed their performance goals and expectations.
Hometown: Smithtown, Long Island, New York (I was born 6 months after Lt Michael Murphy, in the same hospital)
