I am currently an Exercise Physiologist (and strength and conditioning specialist) with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Additionally, I train clients through Pinnacle Personal & Performance Training in Chesterfield, MO. For 23 years I was at the collegiate level, serving as the Head Coach for Strength and Conditioning at Saint Louis University (2004-2008), the University of Illinois at Chicago (2001-2004), Southeast Missouri State University (1991-2001), and the University of Florida (1988-1990). I got my start in the strength and conditioning field as an Assistant Strength Coach at Florida in 1984, where I was also a weight training instructor for the Department of Physical Education from 1985 to 1988. In 2006, I was named Master Strength and Conditioning Coach by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association for my years of service in the field. In 1999, I was named NSCA Ohio Valley Conference Strength and Conditioning Professional of the Year. In 2001, I received an honorary certification from the International Association of Resistance Trainers (IART). I have worked with athletes at the Olympic and professional levels, presented at various clinics/seminars, and worked several athletic-related camps. I am a strong advocate of safe, practical, and time-efficient training and have published a collection of periodical articles, book chapters, complete books, and user-friendly downloads promoting such. My five solo projects—The Ultimate Interval and Circuit Training Manual, The Strength Training Workout Encyclopedia, 100 Old-School Strength Training Workouts, 25 Kick-Butt Workouts, and 85 Workouts of the Week—are one-of-a-kind references for anyone seeking guidelines to improve fitness and strength and lose body fat. I write weekly news articles for the website breakingmuscle.com and also write their mature athlete training program. I received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Iowa in 1981 (It's Great to be a Hawkeye!) and a Master's Degree in Physical Education from Western Illinois University in 1984. I was a member of the Track and Field team at Iowa and served as a Graduate Assistant Track & Field Coach while at Western Illinois. I possess CSCS and SCCC certifications with the National Strength and Conditioning Association and Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association, respectively.
