  • Finally... I was able to break my old record of 12 hours and 33 min. to completing my 7th Rim2Rim under 10 hours! I usually treat my Rim2Rim's like a training ground. It helps me keep my legs and endurance in check. It also allows me to learn more about the Grand Canyon and to experiment with different snacks, meals, and equipment. I always want to improve my knowledge of the canyon. This place is very dynamic and being able to be ready with whatever the canyon throws at you, I find it to be a very important skill set to have. When I take my clients down the canyon, I want them to feel as comfortable and safe as possible. I want them to truly enjoy the experience and that's why I started the 20/20 Grand Canyon Experience company! I have over 10 years of experience going down and up the canyon. I have safely taken over 60 people into the canyon for either a multiday backpacking trip or rim2rim. I've also been a certified personal trainer for 25 years. That allows me to create programs that my clients can follow that gets them ready to experience all the physical demand that the canyon brings. I've completed multiple Wilderness Workshop and I'm Wilderness Safety certified. I'm in love with the Grand Canyon and I will never stop learning about it and how to conquer it!

  • It's only when you truly get out of your comfort zone that you start living life to the fullest. You will be surprised on what the human body can accomplish if you can get the "mind" to get it started! There's a lot of beautiful places in the world and the Grand Canyon happen to be one of them! Yes, many have visited but only a few have descended 7 miles to the bottom. The experience is out of this world but it does take preparation, training, and guidance to do it right. And that's why I created The 20/20 Grand Canyon Experience. I have over 10 years of experience preparing, training, and guiding people down and up the canyon safety. @ We take everyone through "3 Phases" Phase 1: Preparation: It's all about knowledge! And that's what we do. We have 2 group meetings where I present the team with all the do's and don'ts, education on snacks and meals, training for emergency, clothing, etc... Phase 2: Training: As a group (if you are located in AZ) we do 3 simulation hikes to train the group on pace, equipment, and snacks. Everyone also gets a fitness program to follow to prepare the body for the physical demand that the Grand Canyon brings. If you are out of state, we send you all the work that needs to be accomplished. Phase 3: Guidance: There's nothing more reassuring than having the trainer that's been helping you the last 3 month bring you down the canyon. The trust and relationship has been established and every works as a team. Visit our site for more!
  • The Park comes in at a massive 1,904 square miles, while Rhode Island is around 1,212 square miles. In some places, the canyon itself is over a mile deep and ten miles across.
