Aaron is a lifelong athlete and a competitor to the core. Aaron played 4 years of NCAA D1 soccer at Xavier and Wright State University, before eventually earning a contract to play professionally with the Cincinnati Kings, where he played for a little over 2 seasons. Although injuries shortened his soccer career, it opened the door for his current competitive endeavors in Olympic Weightlifting. Most recently Aaron competed at and won the Florida State Weightlifting Championships in the 81k Men's Senior division.
Aaron also started developing as a coach at a young age. While playing in college and professionally, Aaron was also heavily involved as a coach at the youth and high school levels in central Ohio. During that time he developed a passion for watching his athletes mature and grow as people through their experience in the sport.
After starting to compete in Olympic Weightlifting 4 years ago, Aaron immediately dove into the sport, which included him getting his USAW L1 Coaching Certification. He recognized the unique potential weightlifting has to develop stronger, more explosive athletes. He currently coaches athletes in a number of sports including MMA, Boxing, Soccer, Basketball, Crossfit, and Olympic Weightlifting.
