AJ is the facility manager and head of the CrossFit program at Endeavor. He’s been intimately involved in the operations since the official opening of the facility and continues to tirelessly help to better the community. In mid-2017, AJ was presented with the opportunity to become an owner and immediately jumped at the opportunity. He holds a CFL1 and CFL2 as well as an Endurance certification through CrossFit HQ. He also holds a USAW-1 and a rank 3 in the Alexander Method of SMR. Outside of his coaching in strength and conditioning he is an active competitor in weightlifting (national level) and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and holds a teaching certification in Krav Maga. His hands on approach and continual search for knowledge help him to better care for the Endeavor family.

My personal training career began when I attended the National Personal Training Institute and earned my first personal training certification. After that, I earned a second certification through the National Strength and Condition Assocaition (NSCA). Because of my mixed passion for fitness and nutrition, I attended the Ohio State University to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics graduating magna cum laude. After graduation from Ohio State, I became a Certified Sports Nutritionist through the International Society of Sports Nutrition (CISSN), went on to finish my dietetic internship through Iowa State University, and then earn the credential of Registered Dietitian.
