Earning my way to an occupation as a fighter for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on live TV in front of millions is great to say the least, but it’s not who I am. Who I am, is a humble person that puts my integrity, family and friends before anything.
Coming from humble beginnings, I’m proud of my journey and who I am today. I was sheltered in a small Iowa town (Jefferson, IA) with a big family full of compassion, love, loyalty and received the things money can’t buy, raised into a person that puts morals and values first. A quarter century with nothing but the basics isn’t anything to complain about, it makes you appreciate everything and grateful for each day. Continue reading

Hello Team Fury, Myles “Fury” Jury supporters and everyone else reading this article! I am the Head Coach at CrossFit Merle Hay in Des Moines, IA. As a friend of Myles Jury and his manager, I am humbled to be a part of the blog series that has been an inspiration and encouragement to me for the past few months.
Reflecting on how I’ve arrived to the point I’m at today, the blueprint for success varies, and success itself looks different based on each individual’s goals. I will share a few things that have worked for me, with the hopes that one or more will encourage you to continue to strive for your version of success.
I have had the pleasure of working with Myles for the past three years and I am continually impressed with his growth as a fighter and as a person so I am honored to be asked to contribute to his blog.
Most fight bouts are structured in three rounds and measure the fighter’s aggression, striking, grappling and cage control. The task for a coach is to assess the rounds and offer advice to help his fighter adjust and compete to his maximum capabilities. Since 99.9% of the population will never get in an actual MMA match in a cage, that doesn’t preclude you from self-coaching your own three rounds.

I have never been the biggest, fastest or strongest. I most definitely know that, but you don’t have to tell me.
There were always athletes that were better than me on the field, but my dad always told me “never walk off the field, hustle all the time. You never know who’s watching”. Isn’t that the truth.
