I have been working in the fitness and wellness industry for over 12 years. My first experience started off in a hospital setting utilizing more physical therapy and rehab with patients and clients. I then adjusted my focus on strength and conditioning/personal training. Currently I have been co-owner of 11athletics for almost 5 years.
My love of sports and fitness started in high school. I was a multiple sport athlete in track and soccer. I can remember loving the camaraderie of being part of a team and working together to become stronger as a unit. Once we starting hitting the weight room I was addicted and knew this was something I was always going to be passionate about. I constantly wanted to learn more about the body and how to maximize results. This led me to double major in exercise physiology and sports management at MVNU. Upon graduation I gained a lot of experience at Dunlap Community Hospital in Orville. I worked with physical and occupational therapists along with athletic trainers gaining knowledge for multiple facets of rehabilitation. Wanting to focus more on helping people with their fitness goals I moved to Columbus to become a personal trainer with aspirations of eventually opening my own gym. Fast forward 5 years and thanks to business partner and friend Brian Saunders we both were able to make this a reality and so began 11athletics.Email Todd
