ABOUT HJ

My passion began through personal hard work, dedication and physical training as a collegiate athlete in both football and track. It is at the University of Louisiana at Monroe that I earned a two-time title as the Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year as well as, remaining record holder of the 40-yard dash. I majored in Kinesiology with a minor in Business, graduating in 2003. Born from my personal successes, I decided to dedicate my life to assisting others in achieving their goals and a healthy lifestyle change.

My professional training career began at the Tom Shaw Sports Performance Center located in Kenner, Louisiana where I trained high school, collegiate and professional athletes. When a once in a lifetime opportunity arose in 2004, I became a Speed and Conditioning Strength Coach for the New Orleans Saints. During my three years of training professional athletes such as Reggie Bush, Deuce McAllister, and Drew Brees, I had many great learning experiences assisting NFL athletes to achieve their goals.

After the NFL, I became the Director of the Performance Institute assisting Tom Shaw at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Florida. It was here I trained world-class soccer, tennis and golf athletes. During that same time, I instructed at Wide World of Sports in Orlando where combine athletes such as Jacob Hester, Chris Johnson, Matt Flynn and others as they trained for their NFL career.

In 2008, I was given an opportunity to come back home as a Physical Trainer, working with everyday individuals looking to achieve a healthier lifestyle in Lafayette. From this opportunity, I formed H.I.T., LLC, the fastest growing high-intensity class in Acadiana.

In October 2012, I opened my own facility located at 2100 Verot School Road. This facility will enable me to take my clients to a whole new level in their fitness endeavors.
