While attending CSU in order to graduate Travis had to complete an internship in his field in Health and Exercise Science. He chose to apply for an internship at a strength and conditioning facility (Landow Performance) without much knowledge of what they actually did. Soon as he walked in the door he knew that strength and conditioning was exactly what he wanted to be doing. Being hands on with athletes and not behind a desk in the fitness and wellness world was much more appealing to him. Helping athletes reach their potential and beyond through hands on training was something he never had for himself. Being able to guide clients to reach their goals is extremely fulfilling to him. He never thought he would be considered someone’s “coach” or mentor and being someone that clients look to for advice and help is an amazing feeling.
Travis has been coaching for little over a year. Starting off at a separate facility he has coached over 40 clients from all demographics and levels of fitness. When the opportunity arose to step up his game and become a sports performance coach at Landow Performance it was a no brainer. With the chance to be part of a team of amazing knowledgeable coaches is truly a blessing and being able to “sharpen the sword” and learn from the best in the field is a true honor. Deciding to continue my education and get his CSCS (certified strength and conditioning specialist) is only the first step in a long list of certifications he hopes to acquire to become the best coach he can.
In his free time, Travis enjoys snowboarding in the winter as much as he can. Also, growing up in the country he was always outdoors camping, fishing, boating, and hunting, which he still does to this day. Living in Colorado gives him opportunities to go out and be active which helps him relate to clients and their needs. Also, he played football as defensive back in high school as well as ran track as a sprinter in the 100m and 200m. Doing as much as possible gives him an understanding of what activities entail and what areas can be touched on in the training process to better clients’ experiences while they go out and enjoy their active lifestyles as well.
