How do you mentally prepare for a workout?
I focus on my life and how important it is to get everything I need to do completed because tomorrow doesn’t owe me anything.
Do you have a philosophy you live by?
My philosophy is: “Conduct my business…THE END!”
What keeps you motivated when you don’t feel at the top of your game?
I think about others who may not have the opportunity to walk or run or those who may be fighting some form of illness. That is my inspiration to go harder than ever. I also push myself to honor my parents because they were my greatest inspiration.
Why the nickname “Coach Pain?”
This nickname was given to me by the struggles and hardships that I had to overcome when I was at the end of my rope without any hope in sight. My pain became my passion, and so I created “Coach Pain.”
What book is a must-read for those wanting to improve their mental health?
John Little’s “The Warrior Within: The Philosophies of Bruce Lee”
What piece of advice would you give to someone navigating a challenging time in their life?
Never allow circumstances that have nothing to do with you to bring you down or break you! You are a unique creation, and only you are built to go through it!
