Show Notes

Background Information

I've always had a bit of an eclectic lifestyle. I am just as likely to be be eyeballs deep reading about business, astronomy, workout programming, or studies on nutrition. I have always been fairly natural when it comes to athletics. I got into Martial Arts at a young age since I was always the smallest kid in my class and kept getting beaten up. From there I ended up competing in Taekwondo, Kickboxing, and eventually Mixed Martial Arts. I earned my Kru in Muay Thai, Black Belt in Taekwondo, and Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Once I stopped competing in combat sports I sold the gymnastics gym I owned and found CrossFit, opened a gym/box and grew it. Through CrossFit I discovered Strongman and Powerlifting. After realizing I was more naturally gifted in those pursuits, I sold the gym and focused on training and working a corporate gig. I was very successful in my sales career, but in the end decided corporate life was not for me. I moved to North Carolina to train with Travis Mash at his gym. He was a world record holding powerlifter in the early 2000's and currently boasts sending 20+ athletes to world's level competitions and teams in various strength sports. After 2016 World's I moved back to Indiana worked in the corporate world again until I found online and in person training were avenues I could earn a decent living doing, not have to cover up my tattoos, and help people improve their lives. Always seeking multiple streams of income I started an apparel company and used my sales/marketing background to get it rolling. Currently I am a trainer at Fearless Fitness in Lafayette, IN, I do online coaching through Instagram and TheJackedGinger.com, and sell fun lifting themed apparel (Jacked Merch) from Jacked-Merch.myshopify.com (Marketed through Instagram of course)
