But, I wasn’t quite ready for the large differences in clientele I would face. In my first year of training, I was fortunate enough to work with a 15 year old severely overweight athlete, a 30 year old triathlete, a 22 year old looking to simply get stronger, a 65 year old female brand new to exercise, and a recent college baseball player looking to make it big.
Needless to say, I was overwhelmed.
But I dug in, and over the next four years I spent every single day studying the body, the mind, and how to design programs for all of the above and more.
Training became my passion, but increasing my knowledge of how to deliver the best program possible became my mission.
In four years at a commercial gym I learned a lot of lessons in training, many of which on what not to do.
You see, I not only got to train hundreds of clients, but I got to witness thousands in their missions to achieve better fitness, and yet seemed to fail in quality, adherence, attendance, and most importantly: results.
They were overwhelmed.
Overwhelmed with all of the information out there.
Overwhelmed with stress from falling short of their goals.
Overwhelmed with figuring out how to stick with a program and actually progress.
Overwhelmed with how to make working out a regular part of their life.
I wanted to help. I wanted to provide an answer to all of that without the limitations I witnessed, and give clients control of their health.
Thus, in 2011, I started Unlimited Training Systems
One squat rack. One platform. One airdyne bike. One set of weights. 484 square feet. I spent the next year helping a small amount of clientele hit their goals and do as we have always done, get stronger, fitter, healthier every week. I continued to soak up knowledge, seeking out the best of the best in this industry and learn everything I could about how to create change.
Fast forward one year, hundreds of sessions, education trips to Toronto, Charlotte, Atlanta, Louisville, and more , UTS was ready for its first move. More squat racks, more platforms, more free weights, and a 4,000 square foot facility.
It was here that my core philosophy for training became what it is today. It was here that large group strength training at UTS was born. It was here that I discovered the best way to deliver personal training in a group setting.
Hello Friend and Soon to Be Member of the UTS Family,
I’ve been there before.
I have both been a part of the struggle and helped people overcome their own.
I have not only overcome my own injuries, hit my own goals, and been put through every program you can think of, but I have helped hundreds find their own success.
Nine years ago, I found myself working in a commercial gym and ready to use my 15+ years playing multiple sports and 5+ years lifting to help people hit their goals.
Over the next two years, people hit huge personal records, dropped sizes, added muscle, and learned to love the process.
Fast forward another two years, a growing training family, added nutritional services, and a program that is second to none, and Unlimited Training Systems now finds its home in a 9,500 square foot facility that is growing into one that can suit the needs of a community.
Why do I tell you all this?
I tell you this because I understand the struggle to hit goals you have wanted for a while.
I understand the obstacles that stand in the way at every turn.
I understand that its not easy, but takes daily work to hit the goals you seek.
I tell you this because I am here to create the best program and experience possible for you to make your health a priority and join the best training family around.
So quit hesitating, quit creating excuses to delay your start, quit stressing about falling short of your goals, and come join the UTS family.
Owner, Unlimited Training Systems
