I served as a "Cryogenics and Fuel Specialist" for a two year tour in Germany (Rhein Main AFB) during DESERT STORM and the "fall of the Berlin Wall" followed by another two year tour at Norton AFB. After serving a full four year term in the USAF, I chose to cross-train into Active Reserve Duty. Within a month, I was back into full time Active Duty at a USAF Technical School at Lowry AFB and later Sheppard AFB studying to become a Dietitian with a secondary duty as a Combat Medic. I completed my training and was stationed as a USAF Reservist at Travis AFB. About 6 months after completing my training and returning home on Active Reserve Duty I was making a name for myself in the fitness industry and was offered an amazing job to be in charge of 40 Gold's Gyms Fitness Departments in the Central US. I accepted the offer and asked to be honorably discharged from my Active REserve Duty obligations. They released me and what followed was an exciting 15 career in the fitness industry to date.
