"The strongman club was a very important part of my life. I had basically lost all desire for anything fitness related in my 20's. My daughter changed all of that.
One day, playing on the playground with my daughter, I couldn't hold myself up on the monkey bars and my kid was literally running laps around me. I didn't want to be in a situation where I couldn't play with my own kid. I had visions of what would happen later on if I ever became a grandparent. If I couldn't keep up with my own kid now, there was no way it was going to get better. I started lifting and exercising to combat this.
Soon after, while looking for a hobby during the first year of Covid, I discovered Big Tommy and sent him an email asking about participating in one of the competitions. He invited me to Strongman Saturday and I instantly knew that this would be my community. The strongman club has been there since the beginning of my journey. My daughter has seen my love of the community and in return has competed alongside me.
Since then I've found my love of lifting, sports, and coaching. I took on coaching track and field and football at a local high school and can see the difference that sports can make in kids’ lives. Not everyone has the opportunity to participate in sports, where not only do they learn valuable life lessons, but learn a sense of community with an extremely diverse group of people. This is something that I not only want my own kid to experience, but all kids to experience early on in their life. If the Driven Athlete Foundation helps change even one person’s life and gives them opportunities they wouldn't have had prior, then it's done its job."

"I believe in the way it helps build community in a natural manner. Everyone is so passionate and supportive that it helps me find and feel good about my best self. Strongman has helped me get through some very hard personal struggles and understand myself better. I love that there are so many like minded, supportive people there that learn and grow together. I don't know what I would be without strongman."
