After spending 10 years in federal prison, I came home with a passion for fitness, in shape, and hungry for work.  I also came home to a lot of closed doors, and people not wanting to give me a chance, but I persevered and built a successful personal training business. I decided to help people that came from the same situation as myself, who needed an opportunity. Our entire program is based exactly on how I became successful on my own.


A Second U Foundation works to make sure that people coming home are not defined by their sentence, but given the tools need to be successful. We offer skills and guidance, while providing a community to support them, as they create careers and rebuild their lives. We are proud to be a part of their process.
