What's up! Yes..., it's me, coach Teddy! I once weighed in at over 260lb..., it's crazy for me to picture it every time I say it out loud.
In 2008 I decided to change my life one step at a time starting with my health. I happened to stumbled into a local CrossFit gym looking for guidance and within 6 months of clean eating and hard work at the I had lost over 60lbs..., I was hooked and wanted to learn more!
I knew I wanted to help others reach their nutrition and fitness goal, after years of training and working for other gyms, I decided to open my own gym and continue the journey on my own terms.
So on August 6th 2014 I got the keys to a 600 square foot building and started to build. My thought behind the name Artillery Outlaws Strength & Condition is simple..., I will arm you with the proper fitness "Artillery" to win the war and reach your goals.
So you ask..., Outlaws? What's that about?
Easy, I am an outlaw! I believe we all have a little outlaw inside of us.
While on my journey of learning and trying to be the best me I can be, I have become a certified nutrition coach, certified CrossFit Level 1& 2 coach, Spartan SGX coach, Spartan obstacle training specialist, Ironman in finisher and finisher of multiple Spartan endurance events.
Since my first spartan race in 2014 I have been working hard to become a competitor in the Spartan Elite category.
I am still on the journey..., working hard in my age group category I was able to earn a 1st place finish in 2019 at the San Louis Obispo Spartan Ultra and a 3rd place finish in Hawaii at the Spartan Ultra at Kualoa Ranch.
Spartan Elite division I am coming for you! LOL!
I know me and my team would love to hear about your goals and guide you as you navigate and accomplish them.
