Through my passion to forge myself into the best athlete possible, I developed a love for performance training. I learned and experienced that with the right training and the right coach, any athlete can change their body and maximize their performance. The passion I experienced as an athlete trying to find the best training regimen to achieve all my goals was the foundation for starting Peerless Athletics. I began a journey to find the “Holy Grail” of training by learning from great coaches and combining the best parts of each system into one complete training system: Peerless Athletics. I have personally been trained by the best performance coaches in the country including:
- Mike Boyle (Director of S&C for the Boston Red Sox)
- Dennis Logan (Head of NFL Combine Prep Program at EXOS)
- Keenan Robinson (North Baltimore Swim Club and Michael Phelps’ SC)
- Rob Oshinskie (Owner/Founder of Victory Sports and Performance)
- Joel Saunders (Director of Adult Performance Training at EXOS)
- Dennis Keiser (Owner/Founder of Keiser pneumantics)
- Rob Taylor (Owner of Smarter Team Training)
- Mike Gittleson (Fmr. U. of Michigan S&C Coach)
- Augie Maurelli (Fmr. U. of Delaware S&C Coach)
- Scott Moody (Owner/Founder of AthleteFIT)
- Kevin Boyle (Director for Explosive Performance)
- Chris Gorres (ONYX)
As a walk-on at the University of Delaware, I beat the odds by earning a starting position and a full athletic scholarship. I played fullback/h-back and linebacker for the Blue Hens from 2009-2011. In 2010 we won our conference, the CAA, and went to the D-1 FCS Championship Game.
After college, I used the Peerless Athletics Training System to improve my combine stats dramatically. I was invited to the NFL Super Regional Combine to workout in front of all 32 NFL teams. I would have never got to that stage without Peerless Athletics Training Systems which is why I am now dedicated to providing every person I work with the opportunity to use our system and become the best version of themselves.

For the majority of my life, everything has revolved around sports. After high school, I went on to play at Penn State University, where I was a part of the 2008 Big Ten Championship team/2009 Rose Bowl team. After my freshman year, I decided to transfer to Saint Francis University, a Division-I FCS School in Loretto, PA. I was a 4-year starting quarterback, playing in 44 collegiate games.
My performance and durability at the collegiate level was attributed to my efforts and devotion to my training. This enthusiasm for performance training ultimately led to me to become a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and United States Weightlifting Sport Performance Coach (USAW).
I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 3 years and finished my Master’s in Business Administration with my remaining year of eligibility. Shortly after graduation, my passion for sports and fitness was the driving force in the creation of Peerless Athletics, a company co-founded with Chris Campbell. We wanted to create a training solution for athletes, just like us, who had the desire to improve, but simply needed the tools and instruction to do so. As a result, Peerless Athletics evolved into world-wide programming service that provides athletes of all walks of life with a personalized training solution to fit their every need.
