After finding fitness in my late twenties I really fell in love. I fell in love with helping other people learn to move their bodies, gain confidence, and become happier, healthier people. I myself experienced some great gains, and had a blast learning to become a weightlifter and all of the skills needed to coach people at a high end functional fitness box. Unfortunately for me, my eagerness to advance without building the proper foundation caused me to learn the hard way that high intensity and heavy weights all of the time is not a recipe for success for everyone. But being part of a great community is, so finding a way to provide the right programs for people to use to really benefit themselves while also keeping the community feel of a box became the goal. Fortunately for me, my body was my education, and I became a better coach just learning from my own mistakes. I hope LiFTED is a place where I can heal, and grow, and build the proper foundation to support the weights I intend on lifting. And a place where everyone can come and heal, and grow and build the life that they envision for themselves!
