Steve got his start in Powerlifting in 2013 when he was living in St. Louis, MO, and while his formal education is in Marketing, his passion and interests lies in the pursuit of strength. Between diligent studying and the constant thirst for knowledge, Steve has taken the principles and theories he has learned to develop best practices within programming and lift technique that have led to dozens of PRs on the platform for his athletes. Under the tutelage of Hani Jazaryli of The Strength Athlete and Brad Couillard of Integrated Strength, he’s been able to set personal bests of a 479lb. squat, 275lb. bench press, and 535lb. deadlift in competition.

But Steve’s achilles heel in his own performance has been injuries, as he has been plagued from the get-go. While this may have faltered his own powerlifting career, it has greatly benefited that of his athletes. Since progress didn’t come easy, he had to work that much harder in understanding the intricacies of programming and form to be able to make the progress he desired. Using that knowledge, he has not only helped healthy athletes perform to their best standards, but specializes in helping injury-ridden powerlifters get back to the platform.
