Tim majored in Kinesiology and finished with a degree in Applied Learning and Development. He is now the founder and owner of Nuclear Athletes. Throughout Tim's sports career he trained under some dynamic strength and conditioning coaches. So he was exposed to many different philosophies and methods. During his playing days he always knew that the strength & conditioning field would be his calling. During his NFL playing days he would work out with and train other NFL athletes. He create a strength program that is considered unconventional since the base exercises are not your traditional lifts. But all he wanted was for athletes to train like they were meant to be trained, which involved getting strong but staying nimble and fluid.
