I am fortunate to own Subversus Fitness and am also the Founder of a non-profit, UliftU. However, more importantly than whatever those titles mean on a given day, using sport as a tool for social change has been and continues to be my professional and personal pursuit.
Currently, we face an ever growing public health crisis of chronic diseases made worse by unequal access to care, a lack of representation in resources and failures to provide inclusive leadership. Through working in cities across the country and prison over the last 12 years to help fight those crises using sport and fitness programs, I’ve learned two things. People want to be well. People do not have a level playing field to do so. My goal is that my career and actions may be to help fix those issues by leveraging resources, creating space and taking meaningful action. Subversus is our site of power to that end.
Personally, I’m also an endurance enthusiast with a questionable overhead squat. In 2012, I signed up for my first bike race. It happened to last 7 days. In New Zealand. I’m not great at moderation. I’ve raced and finished 5 Ironman triathlons including the World Championships in 2013. I enjoy the pursuit of discovery through difficulty. And watching people get their first muscle up.
