My essay to get into The Ohio State University was "Bodybuilding as a Way of Life"

At seventeen I wrote passionately about bodybuilding being the only sport where you have to consistently fail to get better. You need to consistently go through bouts of uncomfortable times to grow and get better.

As I got older, this applied to other aspects of life. At this point, my goal is to keep pushing to be a better human in every aspect of life and not live by excuses or accept the status quo. I'm always looking for a better solution for the challenges life brings us and push myself and others around me toward the same.


Fitness, nutrition and education have always played a key role in my life and when starting ESSENTIAL SPORTS NUTRITION, I wanted to push the envelope to be more than just another supplement store.

The name and motto came to me naturally, without debate or consultation. Fitness, Nutrition and Education are ESSENTIAL to the overall well-being. How individuals attack these pillars is part of their unique journey.

With this in mind, I wanted to expand these concepts further to include Lifestyle and Community.


While Fitness, Nutrition and Education are core pillars for one's self, Lifestyle and Community bring a larger impact. Lifestyle for ESSENTIAL SPORTS NUTRITION is extending the platform to include FIT TOOLS and Music, but will expand to include recommended reading, selected partners, events and activities beyond the gym.

Community efforts will be handled though our non-profit, 501(c)(3) - ESSENTIAL CARES - that supports youth sports. Youth sports are paramount for the socialization, physical health and well-being of the next generation. Every purchase at ESSENTIAL SPORTS NUTRITION contributes to ESSENTIAL CARES, while customers also have the option to round-up for charity at every checkout.


It's my goal to build a company that is inclusive - for everyBODY - regardless of their sport, goals, mindset, age or experience.

In today's social world, people are flooded with incredible images of the fittest people - but those bodies are not realistic for 99% of the world. While some images may be motivational, most people I meet say the images create a negative self-image.

Let's flip the script and work on becoming better every day - in ourselves. If we can challenge ourselves to do one thing a little better each day, then we are making progress. Progress over perfection is a key attribute to overall well-being. While we may never be those pictures we see, we can be better than yesterday and that's awesome.

Be the best YOU that you can be. And at the end, Live Optimally.
