I have always been active. I loved and still love outdoor activities and anything physical. Our bodies were created to move and work not to be sedentary in front of a TV or computer monitor. I am not blessed with an abundance of athletic talent, however, I am the classic example of success through hard work and proper technique. Hard work in the gym paid for and most of my undergaduate education through a football scholarship. From there I attended the post graduate veterinary program at the University of Missori College of Veterinary medicine. My primary focus of study was equine medicine most of which pertaining to sports medicine. Today my wife Jennifer, and I established and operate White Oaks Vet Clinic in north Edmond. The clinic sees a majority of dogs and cats and I see to the horses.
My favorite physical activity is playing Racquetball and I have been doing so for over 20 years. I attend national events and have come close to winning a national championship title in the amature arena. I have already won some regional and state level championships, but the national award has evaded me thus far.
Over the years I have strayed from good eating habits and have recently gained 20 lbs from my comfortable weight of 175 lbs. In college, when I played football I tipped the scales at 205 lbs, but when I stopped the weight training and eating, my body weight equalized to 175 lbs. Over the past thirty years my weight has gradually increased to 191 lbs. Because of this extra weight, I noticed that my racquetball game has declined and I was experiencing injuries and soreness to my right shoulder. I was basically imbalanced physically with a weak core and leg strength. This imbalance caused me to "over use" my right arm and shoulder to hit the ball hard, fast and low. These are properties necessary to beat your opponent.
So, January 21st, 2013 I started P90X to create a better RB player, less prone to injury and ultimately a national champion..
