Meet the Staff – AJ | Tree to Tree Adventure Park

Meet AJ!  AJ is a guide here at T2T in his second season. You might be surprised to learn that AJ loves to cook: dessert is his specialty!  He’s an avid runner, racing in anything from a 5K to over 100 miles.  In fact, if he wrote an autobiography, he would title it “The Trials, Tribulations and Adventures of a Wanna Be Ultra Runner.”  If you’re looking for someone to help you along in a journey to become physically fit, AJ is your man!  He loves to help, whether it be helping someone to lose weight or compete in their first running race! 

What’s your favorite part of your day at T2T? Why?  Helping customers conquer the course! It’s just great to have see a customer who is a little intimidated by the course and succeed and make it through and celebrate at the end. I helped guide a young customer complete the last element on the Teal course; “the leap of faith.” She initially refused and wanted to come down but when she finally jumped and landed she celebrated like she won the lottery.


What’s your Favorite Element on the Courses?  The Tarzan Swing. Probably because I was a little bit hesitant when I first had to do it while training.


What are some things that are on your bucket list?  As an ultra runner, I am waiting to get into the Western States 100 Miler. You are selected via a lottery. I’ve been applying for that race for 9 years and haven’t had my number picked yet. This year is the year!!


If you could have any superpower, what would you choose?  My favorite super hero growing up was Spiderman. The ability to jump and climb like Spiderman would be awesome and come in real handy at T2T when a customer needs some one on one assistance.
