Hello, I'm Seth.
Founder | Head Coach
I’ve been throwing a Frisbee for as long as I can remember. I spent countless hours on the street in front of my house throwing with my brother and friends. In the evenings, we would head to a local business complex and play object golf around the parking lot and grounds not knowing disc golf even existed at that time.
Before my career in athletic performance, I patrolled the waters of the San Francisco Bay as a member of the U.S. Coast Guard and spent a few years running 911 calls on an ambulance and as a reserve firefighter.
After a decade of service in the military and as a first responder, I changed course and decided to help people in a new way. This lead me to California State University Fullerton graduating in 2012 Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology (Exercise Science) and a focus on strength and conditioning.
During my senior year of college, I was hired by the Anaheim Ducks NHL team as their Strength and Conditioning Coach Intern. This was an amazing opportunity to work with athletes at an elite level and help keep their bodies in peak condition during the long and physically demanding season.
After college, I traveled and taught certifications and workshops for two fitness organizations as an Instructor for Original Strength and Master Instructor for DVRT Ultimate Sandbags.
Over the last decade I have attended numeous workshops and certifications including Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), Fuctional Movement Screen (FMS), Russian Kettel Bell Chanllenge (RKC), StrongFirst (SFG), Postural Restoration Institute (PRI), Pain-Free Performance Specialist Certification (PPSC) to name a few. Part of my focus was to help train current and future health and fitness professionals.
In 2013 I opened and ran a fitness studio, Iron Republic, for four years before starting Disc Golf Strong. Our focus was on functional movemnet paterns. We used a varity of tools such as Kettle Bells were the foundation of training coupled with ultimate sand bags, battling ropes, bands and rings.
I am passionate about supporting the disc golf community in reducing injuries, optimizing performance and increasing longevity of play.
