About Me

After suffering tragic injuries to his legs in 2011 as a result of a roof fall, Brian battled back from a potential lifetime in a wheelchair to become an awarded competitive powerlifter. Over the years he has been contacted by people worldwide who were inspired by his story. As a result of the support and help he received during his recovery, Brian has dedicated himself to helping others improve in both mind and body through barbell training.

Brian lives with his wife Summer and their 6 children in Kentucky. When not chasing storms, falling off roofs or lifting heavy things, Brian enjoys moments on the porch appreciating every additional day he has been given since his accident.
