Recipe of the Week

Cauliflower “Potato” Salad


Ingredients: 1 head of Cauliflower (organic preferred), 2 green scallions, 2 stalks celery, handful of  Cilantro, 2 boiled eggs,  Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, Avocado Mayonnaise. 

Separate the Cauliflower into small pieces and steam  to tender about 5 minutes. I like to steam mine. Remove and add chopped boiled eggs. Cut green scallions, celery and cilantro into small size and add to bowl.  Add seasonings and avocado Mayo. You can vary this, it’s pretty much like potato salad except you use Cauliflower and Avocado Mayo.

Learn More About Coach Pain By Reading His Bio Below:

I am honored to share my story with you so that you can see the path that brought me to where I am today.  You see, I believe that it is through difficult situations and great pain that the human spirit grows and character is developed. And my story is a testament to this.

I started in the fitness industry when I was only 18 years old, and I knew that it was where I belonged.  I had always been into fitness and enjoyed being active throughout  my whole childhood. I was involved in Martial Arts, Wrestling and Football throughout high school and was generally a very physical person.

I have been in the field for 26+ years and plan to stay here for many more.  While I always enjoyed my work and was successful with it, I was not as passionate then as I am now.  The passion didn’t come until much later.  The passion came through the most painful loss I have ever experienced…the death of my mother.

It was my mother’s life: her sacrifices, support and guidance that made me the man I am today.  It was her death that birthed a passion in me.  After I lost my mother, I had a renewed sense of purpose; I vowed that I would make her proud.  It was during this painful season that I realized that I was put here to help others, to guide others to be their best selves, and to continue striving to be my best too.

My parents were always an anchor for me.  They raised my siblings and I to be the best we could be, instilling  a deep faith and the principles of Respect, Love and Discipline; principles that I apply to everything I do even to this day.  After my mother’s death, my father became a beacon for me.  He demonstrated a great strength even through great tragedy.  He inspires me to push through the pain and grow stronger through difficult situations.

Since then, I redefined my purpose.  I became more passionate about helping others to reach their goals, but even more I longed to help them evolve into their best selves.  I work with clients to help them move forward towards their future instead of dwelling on the past.  One of my favorite analogies of this evolution is when a caterpillar becomes a butterfly.  After the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, he never goes back to being a caterpillar.  Once you start living as your true self and growing into your best self, you don’t go back to who you used to be.

Since this awakening, my path has led me towards many great career opportunities.  I have worked as a Spartan SGX trainer and had the incredible honor of giving motivational speeches at Spartan and Battlefrog events along with at the OCR World Championships.   I have spoken to groups of first responders and to youth at schools.  When I speak, I do not write a script, I speak from the heart and in the moment.  My hope with each motivational speech is that I connect to the hearts of the audience, that they will be able to feel my energy and passion and that it will ignite something inside of them too!  I view every speaking opportunity as an honor and an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.

As far as training goes, I have developed my own unique style that represents who I am as a fitness coach.  I have built the foundation for my training on my years of experience with various approaches.  My training sessions are all about functional movement, but I am constantly changing things up to keep my clients interested and challenged.  This style is not for everyone, but those who want to be pushed and who want to become mentally t…
