WHAT IS 90REV?
90Rev is a resource and online training for those who aspire to compete in their first triathlon, bike race, or running race. In the Spring of 2017, we are launching a web app designed for the "everyday" athlete. Lot's more information to come about the coolness of the app.
When I first started to compete in endurance sports, it was overwhelming. I had no clue on how to train, what equipment to get, and where to start. Early in my career as a physical therapist, a fellow co-worker, and a close friend guided me into the world of endurance sports. I have never looked back since I made the choice to accept the endurance lifestyle.
Who is Steve?
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO HIM?
Once I got bit by the endurance bug, I was hooked. I used to run and bike for fun, but it wasn’t structured. I became so interested in how to become a better athlete and how to safely train. I furthered my physical therapist training and began to specialize in the biomechanics and sports science specific to endurance training since 2010. The endurance world was a big part of who I was becoming. It became my lifestyle.
TRAINING IS MUCH MORE THAN COMPETING.
In the early 2000s, my wife and I had gone through some tough times. Jody had been diagnosed with melanoma and growing our family was not the smoothest journey. Fortunately, Jody’s cancer was caught early and we now have an energetic and fun-loving little boy. Mentally and emotionally, these times were challenging, but getting out there cycling and running was the perfect medicine to keep my mind straight. It made me realize how important it was for me to train. Training is much more than competing. It is not just something to check something off my bucket list, but to keep me grounded.
WHAT'S UP WITH THE SUPERHERO THING?
My son, Elijah, and I were watching Marvel’s The Civil War movie. I’m a sucker for superhero movies. I love the action and special effects. At the end of the movie, Elijah looked up at me and said that he wants me to become like Caption America. Strong and brave. Hence our superhero and Nerf Battle photo shoot. How could I turn down that request? 90Rev is one of my super powers so I can be strong and present for my family.
Why I Do What I Do
HINT: IT'S NOT TO RULE THE WORLD
I live and practice the endurance lifestyle, but my motivation is my family. Every day I wake up, I get a reminder of why I created 90Rev. Seeing Jody and Elijah each day fuels me to keep pushing. I believe in working hard, but being present for my family. I want to be that Papa that makes time to play Legos with my son. I want to be that husband that is a solid support and a good listener for my wife. I want my life to be structured around living life, helping others, and being with my family. The cool thing about my job in 90Rev is that it allows me to plan my day around my family, not around my work.
