Spartan & Super Dad

We have amazing clients at CRAVE Personal Training and Boot Camp.
I have a hard time not bragging all the time. Caring, original, motivated people who I love sharing my days with train here in Huntington Beach.
Here is someone who continued to inspire not just myself, but I know he inspires other clients and most definitely is a hero to his two children.
So if you think being a mom or dad excludes you from doing wild and crazy things in the gym and out, check out his story. He received his Spartan Trifecta metals this year which means he accomplished and completed three daunting obstacle races. Not only did he complete them but finished in the top of these races.

Replace Motivation with This!


Motivation is a word thrown around so often now that I think people can actually feel guilty for not “waking up motivated.”

I started talking about level 7 with my coach and trainer, Taryn Peters, as soon as I passed 6 and it was one year from that date that I tested.

I became consistent at training and putting in the hard work for about 4 months to really be ready to test.

How many days/hours per week do you train for this and in general for your health and fitness?

I was training 4-5 days a week, 2 of the days were ho...


Get Motivated NOW!


For me motivation is many things.

1. To show myself who I am, what I am made of and what I can accomplish first and fore most!

2. To hopefully lead by example to those around me including you, my friends, my family and my co-trainers

Here is someone who has an amazing story and a nature unlike anyone else on earth. He is rough around the edges and he uses profanity (warning) but this guy has a secret recipe and I want more of it in my life daily.

Find who inspires and motivates you aside from yourself and those who look up to you.

We all need someone to sharpen our iron.

Here is one of my inspirations:
