Training & Experience: Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Cameron will be bringing an eager to learn attitude accompanied with a great sense of humor. Football and powerlifting were a staple for Cameron until an accidental shoulder injury sidelined him for the remainder of high school. Though sports ended soon for Cameron, he quickly learned the dedication, focus, and consistency needed to improve not only physically but mentally as well. Once college began, it was clear that improving the physical and mental ability of an athlete was a passion for Cameron. Taking an internship in his final semester with the University’s strength and conditioning coach, Cameron was able to get his first dose of hands on training with the college softball, volleyball, soccer, and track teams. After graduating college and moving back to Fort Worth, Cameron applied for several internships and was accepted at a nearby facility, who’s focus was baseball development. Though an area that he did not have a lot of experience in, it was quickly learned that movements are always more important than the sports and a lot of sports share similar movements.
