As a tech guy and efficiency nerd, Ray is always looking for the best way to accomplish a goal. In an effort to improve his athleticism in preparation for an amateur Muay Thai fight, Ray started by pursuing the most broadly applicable physical adaptation: strength. He then found Starting Strength as the most effective way to get strong.
Ray put on over 30 pounds of lean muscular body mass before starting training camp and went on to win his amateur Muay Thai debut - crossing a lifelong dream off of his bucket list.
After experiencing how profoundly Starting Strength changed his own life, Ray began attending Starting Strength seminars and started coaching friends and family to help them become stronger, healthier versions of themselves.
