Pat became involved in fitness through sports, martial arts and military service. He studied Exercise Science in college and spent much of his early life training the same way: a mix of traditional body-building exercises, Olympic lifting and running. By a certain age he noticed his joints hurt frequently and he felt less mobile. He only felt strong in specific positions and sprang for the ice pack whenever he challenged his range of motion. After he began training with Greg and Sarah and discovered there was more to life than bicep curls (although he still does these from time to time). Pat enjoys functional movement, tumbling, high intensity interval training, working with heavy maces and clubs and rucking local trails. His day job involves many hours in front of a computer so he enjoys the close-knit sense of community found at the Chapel Hill Movement Gym.
