Steve was born in Denver, Colorado and spent the first eight years of his life as a mountain kid. He then first moved to Houston to spend four years here before moving to London where he learned more about the sport of proper football and Liverpool Football Club. After four years, Steve moved back to Houston to finish out High School and then attended college in Salt Lake City where he played 2 years of NAIA Soccer with Westminster College and learned about recovery after receiving a serious knee injury.
After having graduated with an International Business Major, Steve moved back to Houston and started in the financial realm but was always playing soccer and working out. Over the years Steve suffered from other sport and weightlifting injuries that introduced him to physical therapy and the importance of maintaining strength and proper form while lifting. Over the years he developed a holistic approach in his workout programs that helps clients progress and get better a little at a time that adheres to the Kaizen model.
Personally, Steve is an entrepreneur of sorts having started Project Delta a faith-based soccer program in 2009 that still continues today! He is still a massive Liverpool supporter and enjoys instructing and participating in Bootcamp classes, and taking on Spartan Races.

Candice was born in Baytown, TX as the eldest of 5 children. She is a Houston native with a special love for The Woodlands, where she now resides. She is the proud mother of four children; Allen, Codi, Joelle & shelter rescue (best dog ever!), Ella. If you ask her about them, be prepared to stay a while.
She worked as a medical insurance collector/accounts receivable with Apria Healthcare until the birth of her second child in 2004. For ten years she stayed home as a full-time mother and even ran a successful eBay store. As a mother of three and at the age of 32, she joined the Bikeland team, as an associate and eventual assistant manager, where she learned how to ride a bike and developed a love and passion for mountain biking. While her love and passion for cycling grew, so did her accomplishments within the biking scene; she raced into 4th place in the State at the TMBRA XC State Championship Series and started a successful series of sponsored (G.HO.R.B.A and Bikeland, The Woodlands) family rides where she coached families in off-road cycling.
Throughout the years, she experienced her own trials with finding answers and solutions to back pain, neck pain, and migraines. She had tried various chiropractors, doctors’ visits, and medication with very little results. She eventually went to a physical therapist where she was able to resolve her chronic pain and continue doing the things she loved to do. You can now find her at various off road cycling events, leading bike rides, volunteering with G.H.O.R.B.A, at outdoor music events, and spending time with her children.
