Tavin was born in Glendora, CA, but has been a Las Vegas Valley local for most of his life. He grew up in Henderson and attended Foothill High School. After high school he spent two years living in Brazil doing volunteer work while serving a mission for his church. He enjoys being outside and doing activities like camping, hiking, rock climbing, and surfing. He always has loved sports and grew up playing football, baseball and basketball, and then in high school he began to compete in track and cross country which developed his love for running. At UNLV he began playing for their rugby team and was UNLV’s starting outside center. In June 2016 Tavin married the love of his life and they currently live in Henderson.

Tavin is a kinesiology major at UNLV and is studying to become a physical therapist. He has taken many classes focusing on athletics and exercise and loves that area of study and more so the real world application of it all. He has worked in a physical therapy clinic for close to 4 years and has gained experience through work and school for his emphasis in injury prevention and rehabilitation. From a young age fitness and athletics have been an important part to his life and he has a true passion for it, which is what motivated him to study that field in university. His knowledge and passion for training and the joy he has in doing it are what drive him as a personal trainer and he loves helping others achieve their goals.
