Born & raised in San Antonio, Texas, Holden developed a fervor for fitness at an early age. As a 2nd grader, his mother, Debby, became a group fitness instructor and would soon become the most influential figure on his fitness journey.

An avid basketball player in his youth, Holden discovered he enjoyed the strength and conditioning aspect of team training much more than his teammates. This interest in maximizing athletic performance would only grow over the years. As a freshman Kinesiology major at the University of Texas at San Antonio, he became a personal trainer at a local athletic club. This afforded Holden the opportunity to apply his studies to the real world daily, experimenting with a variety of different training disciplines when programming workouts for clients and himself alike. It was at this time he decided bodybuilding was his favorite sect of the fitness world and in November ‘08, competed in his 1st show at age 20.

In May of ‘11, he graduated from UTSA with a B.S. in Kinesiology/Exercise Science. In 2015, life lead him to Austin, TX, where he is elated to be a part of the best gym anywhere in the world: Efficient Exercise. When he’s not training his stellar clients, Holden enjoys dabbling into a little bit of everything: DJing, drawing, biking, yoga, reading, traveling, meditating…just to name a few. You can also find him frequently hanging with the EE crew, eating otherworldly amounts BBQ and partaking in legendary conversations about every topic under the Texas sun.
