After achieving his result, he knew he wanted to do the same for others. Over the next few years, he dedicated himself to learning as much as he could about health and fitness earning him an Associates in Personal Training, a bachelor’s degree in Public Health and a Master's Degree in Sports in Health Science and worked his way up to one of V Shred’s lead trainers!
