As young as Luke can remember, he would follow his father, a police officer, to the gym up above the police station in Shakopee and watch him lift weights (and oh man his reps were too fast). Luke’s passion only increased through middle school and high school as he lifted weights in order to prepare for football. His love for strength training has only grown with every passing year. As Howard Shultz says, “knowledge breeds passion.” The more Luke learns the more passion he has for intelligent strength training.
