William opened our gym in 2010 because he wants people to have the chance to live their fullest life and not have their health and fitness keep them from doing that … and he wanted some fun people to workout with.
His mission as a coach and business owner is to guide individuals to be a healthy, fit person that enjoys an active life.
“We’ve created a culture at Iron Boot that’s completely opposite of so much negativity in the world. We’ve got the kindest people here. Members encourage others inside and outside of the gym. There’s people you look up to and there’s others that want your mentoring. It makes us all want to be better family members, friends, bosses, employees and team members.”
William has been involved in numerous other fitness ventures. He was a partner in opening My Fit Food restaurants throughout Los Angeles and Phoenix. He provides consulting for leaders in the fitness industry including gym owners throughout the US, Europe and Australia.
Prior to delving full-time into strength, conditioning, and nutrition, William practiced as a professional engineer for nearly 10 years. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from LSU and an MBA from Tulane.
William enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and their two dogs, his family, friends, and church.
He used to be an adventure and endurance junkie. He has run 12 marathons including New York, Chicago, Marine Corps and Pike’s Peak – deemed by many as the most difficult in the world. He has swum across the Mississippi River, run a couple of ultras, held a 1,000-day running streak and rode a bull named The Hurricane for 2.7 seconds.
