What are your interests, hobbies, and talents outside of MCAC? 

I’ve been a golfer since I was 8yrs old (with little to show for it!); I enjoy motorcycling, reading, doing things with my wife and three grown boys, and trying to get my lazy Coonhound to take a walk.  

When you're not at MCAC, where would we find you?

Most often at my office in Marstons Mills. 

What days/times are you normally at MCAC?

Thursday night tennis for 26 years!  Sunday morning and Monday night tennis with a workout or two the rest of the week. 

Tell us about your sports and fitness background.

I started playing tennis when I was 30, played mostly hockey as a kid, and rugby in college. 

When did you start at MCAC? How did you first get exposed to MCAC? How did your first couple of workouts go?  I was invited to sub in the Lobotomy Tennis group in 1997, joined the club in 1998, and didn’t go upstairs until my first injury lay-off ten years later. 
What is your favorite movement/workout?

All of the 24 sessions I just completed with Sarah. She’s awesome, and makes different muscles hurt every time!

What impact has MCAC had on your life?

Tremendous impact. I’ve made so many good friends through the club who I socialize, travel, and do business with that I know my life would be very different if I never joined Midcape. 

Do you have a favorite MCAC moment?

 A tennis tournament in 2008.  Jed Hazard and I were in a Friday night match against Adam Pearl & Jake Bear. We lost the first set 6-2, and were down 5-1 in the second.  We won that set 7-5, and took the third 6-2.  It was on court 3 before the largest crowd I’ve ever seen at the club; people were banging on the glass on both levels; it was electric!  

What is your advice for people just getting started or thinking about starting MCAC?

Try it out, they have beginner pickle ball and tennis classes where you would feel comfortable, or more competitive leagues if you want. There are many workout classes to choose from, and lots of the equipment has been updated if just want to workout. The staff is super friendly, it is a very comfortable environment.  

What is your advice for people just getting started or thinking about starting MCAC? 

Do it!  Keep doing it! Your only regret will be if you stop. 

What is keeping you at MCAC?  

In addition to all of the above, the staff is always attentive, the facility is clean and well-kept, Bob has become one of the good friends I mentioned, his kids are all great, and, of course, Joyce!
