He trained to the elite level in high school then was offered a full scholarship for his gymnastics abilities at Springfield College. Tim left school to join the United States Marine Corps and serve his country. His motivation was his father who spent six years on the USS Enterprise in WWII. After completing his USMC tour of duty, he brought his knowledge of gymnastics and combined it with the discipline from the USMC, found Anne Loureiro and the rest is history. OSSG was born!
