Guest Bio:
A doctor, CEO, author, world-class bodybuilder, and multi-millionaire entrepreneur.

I run a fitness franchising business, The Camp Transformation Center, with 110 locations and two different supplement and nutrition companies.

With a Bachelor’s degree from Pennsylvania State University in sports science and life science and a doctorate from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, I have helped over one hundred thousand people transform physically and mentally.

I specialize in helping people get to the top 1% in any and every aspect of their life.

I apply my business acumen and coaching to The 1% Club, helping others to become a 1%er by rising above.

I am also the author of the popular books The Total Body Transformation Secrets and Becoming a One Percenter.

My passion for transformations began by transforming my own physique from a scrawny, awkward kid to a Champion bodybuilder with 23 major bodybuilding titles including Mr. Orange County, Mr. Pittsburgh, Mr. California, Emerald Cup, Tournament of Champions, as well as placing runner up in Mr. USA.

I have over 18 years experience in coaching professional, collegiate, and recreational athletes from all sports. Today, I am a proud husband. I am also the father of two beautiful girls and a handsome baby boy.

I'm a devoted family and businessman because “Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.”
