Bachelor's degree from Kent State University School of Business - 1987


Dual Major in Administrative Science and Marketing


South Florida resident for over 30 years


With 31 years in the fitness industry working for national equipment brands, I called on the largest club chains in our industry, including Planet Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness, and Lifetime Fitness, just to name a few.  Extensive nationwide travel and annual attendance of all industry trade-shows has given me expert insight into newest exercise trends, equipment offerings, and progressive facility designs.   Additionally, it has allowed me to develop personal relationships with many of the top commercial equipment manufacturers in the world, some of which we have chosen to partner with at Xcel Fitness Products.


I have built my career on honesty and integrity and those characteristics will be the backbone of our company.

Bachelor's of Science degree in marketing from  Florida State University - 1985


South Florida resident for 58 years

After winning my first body building contest in 1989, I decided to pursue my passion for fitness through my career. In that same year, I began working for 'Carolina Fitness Equipment' as a sales representative. A decade later, I took on more responsibility working for Gym Source, eventually managing sales in the state of Florida between 2006 and 2010. Throughout my 30 years of experience I have sold over $80,000,000 in fitness equipment, and have designed and equipped hundreds of facilities.

In 2011 I was awarded the Excellence in Achievement award by the Boardroom Magazine for excellence in fitness design- specifically for Aberdeen Golf and Country Club.
