As a Physical Therapy Assistant, Endurance athlete and coach, Aaron has been a member of the Adams team since 2019. Prior to completing the two-year Physical Therapist Assistant program at Macomb Community College, Aaron competed throughout the U.S. and Canada as an elite triathlete from 2005-2013 and has coached youth and adult athletes and competitive teams for fifteen years.
While studying exercise physiology at Michigan State University, Aaron ran one year for the Spartans before turning his full attention back to triathlon, where, as a coach and athlete, he helped lead the MSU triathlon team to a pair of top-5 team finishes at the Collegiate National Championship.
Since 2006, Aaron's athletes have represented at the Ironman World Championship, Boston Marathon, numerous high school track and cross country state championships, and qualified for ITU triathlon and duathlon world championships of all distances.
Over the past several months, Aaron completed his remaining prerequisite courses for PT school and will be applying this spring to the 2022 cohort of the University of Findlay’s PTA to DPT bridge program, a nearly three year doctoral program that will allow Aaron to continue to work at Adams throughout the majority of his academic journey toward becoming a PT.
Aaron has a particular knack for soft tissue mobilization and biomechanics and offers sports massage, gait analysis, and coaching consultation in addition to physical therapy care.
Look for Aaron to return to the local endurance racing scene in the near future!
