He has worked with a variety of clients including both males and females, children and senior adults, sedentary obese clients & fit athletes.

Buck regularly does bootcamp and crossfit workouts and recently competed in both the Marine Mud Run and Crossfit Regionals (2 years).

Besides fitness and helping others develop and reach their potential, Buck works for Elevation Church overseeing their Facilities, Security and Fitness and Wellness Program. He regularly leads bootcamps and health/fitness challenges for the staff. He loves Elevation and is thankful to be a part of what God is doing there. For fun, he is a die hard college football fan (Go UGA Dawgs & UM Wolverines).  And most importantly, he’s blessed with his beautiful wife, Rachel, Hannah Beth (5), Beau (3) and Levi (1)!  He looks forward to helping you change your life.
