about-max

Dedicated to the pursuit of Movement, Strength, & Education

Max Shank “found” exercise at age 18 without even the ability to touch his toes or do a single pull up.  Upon this discovery Max immersed himself deeply in every piece of information he could get his hands on regarding exercise, from weightlifting to gymnastics and back again. Shortly thereafter he founded Ambition Athletics, out of a desire to help make everyone better, sharing the same strategies that helped him go from “zero to hero.”

Max is a firm believer that everyone should be strong, capable, and confident to handle any situation regardless of age or gender. Apart from being very active in Martial Arts, Max competes in the Highland Games and recommends that adults spend more time in physical “play.” Max has also received an Official Commendation from the United States Marine Corps for services rendered in the course of enhancing the athletic readiness of the 1st Anglico at Camp Pendleton.
