Environmental Influences on DNA and Performance Outcomes
How your personal and performance environments alter genetic expression.
As a former NCAA DII track and XC athlete I have personally experienced what it takes to achieve performance driven results. I supplemented that experience with rigorous academic work in pre-medicine (B.Sc. minor in chemistry) and Kinesiology (M.Sc.) studies and am a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS). Over the last decade I have worked as speed and strength and conditioning coach for various sports teams and continue to teach as adjunct faculty in exercise science at Scottsdale Community College.
Most notably I served as the Head SC for men's football from 2012 - 2015 helping see the team to the 2013 Conference and Bowl Championships. In 2019, I was hired as the assistant strength coach for the Arizona Hotshots of the former AAF. I currently own and operate a training studio, Engard Athletics, in Tempe, AZ.
