I”m passionate about fitness and have been training and competing since 1985. I suffered a panic attack in 1985. I was sitting in a large class at Baylor University. Surrounded by a hundred or so students, I suddenly felt dizzy, out of sorts and panicked. The feelings soon subsided but I knew that my poor eating habits and lack of physical activity were the root cause. I joined a Gold’s Gym a few days later and began working out.
It wasn’t long before others began to ask me for advice about training and how to live a healthier lifestyle.
I believe that health has to be first in order to live a balanced, complete life.
I’ve trained countless men and women from all walks of life both online as well as in person.
I’ve been certified by NASM, ISSA and others. I’m a former competitive bodybuilder in both the AAU and NPC.
In 2009, I was asked by Austin Fit Magazines CEO, Lou Earle to be a part of Austin’s Fittest City campaign which was conceived by former Austin Mayor, Will Wynn.
I am married to Kristin, herself an accomplished athlete. Kristin was a full scholarship athlete at the Division 1 school, University of Reno-Nevada. She was the dive team captain, has a background in gymnastics (both coaching and participating) and was a scholar athlete. She (Kristin Dalton) is listed on the all time swimming and diving letter winners at the University of Reno-Nevada (click here). We have 4 boys.
I’m a 4th generation Texan and live in the Lago Vista/Jonestown area.
