Why is Brutus Holding 2 pineapples?

Why is Brutus Holding 2 pineapples?

Lifting weights and sports have been a huge part of my life, my entire life. I don’t know how long I would keep my sanity if I couldn’t lift. It’s my therapy, it’s my daily rush, my measuring stick, it’s a big part of who I am.

I like to see how far I can push myself and I want to doing this for as long as I can. I want to inspire and teach others to test themselves and to take the lessons learned from the iron and apply them into everyday life.

Certifications

  • I’m certified as a personal trainer through “NESTA” and have received other certificates from them including on sports nutrition and sports injuries.
  • In addition I’m Level 2 Certified from “CPPS” which is a sports performance certification at face but it’s so much more than it sounds. The developers of this certification have and continue to teach me a lot about how the body works and how to keep it moving.
  • I’m also Level 2 Certified in “Training For Warriors” which is a combat sports strength and condition system. It is what it sounds like, a philosophy and approach meant to train athletes that perform contact sports but can be modified and applied into training for anyone that wants to be fit for sports or an active life.

The Kru

Every year I invite 3-4 young minds to train with me and learn as much as they can. Depending on the goals we set, we work on movement patterns, strength, speed, power, correcting imbalances, preventing injuries and nutrition. Most people don’t have the discipline to be consistent with me and find their way out of this process. But if you stick around long enough and you work hard you become part of the KRU. Below are some of the people who have done just that, please have a look.

Also, having fun is MANDATORY. For example, you may look at my pic and wonder, “why is he holding two pineapples? Why isn’t he happy with one?” And I can only say, one pineapple, is NEVER enough.
