indyMUSCLE was created by me and my wife, Chelsea, to document our healthy lifestyle journey. It is also a blog of workouts, rehab, recipes, and activities to keep our family happy and healthy as we live in the moment. Fitness. Coaching. Rehab. Motivation. Change.
I started my fitness journey in high school like most teenagers, trying to impress peers with my muscles. This transitioned into becoming health conscious early on, and then in college competing in Bodybuilding, ultimately winning the 2008 Mr. Ball State Bodybuilding Championships Overall. After this I received my Bachelor’s in Exercise Science, got my NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification (CSCS), and then went on to grad school to get my Master’s in Sport Science and Rehabilitation, and Doctorate in Chiropractic. I have since created a successful rehab clinic and went on to win 2015 Mr. Indianapolis Novice Middleweight Champion and continue to compete.
My wife has always been an athlete. She was always a three-sport athlete through school and has always had an active lifestyle approach. After college she went on to become a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist and has practiced since 2008. During her first pregnancy she continued lifting weights and focused on Yoga, with great success. Then recently during her second pregnancy, she focused almost exclusively on weightlifting, and had an even easier labor experience. Since then, she continues to strive to be in the best shape of her life every day, all while managing two amazing kids and sometimes an overly enthusiastic husband. She is currently completing her coursework to become a Certified Personal Trainer.
