Elevate Athletes are Full of Surprises!
One of the things that happens in a traditional gym setting is that casual bonds are formed with other people that use the facility at the same time or that take the same class. This same thing, and more, happens at Elevate. We form bonds with other athletes in our team training sessions. One thing that makes Elevate different is that the bonds formed within the walls of Elevate grow to extend outside of training time. We become friends. We become family. We discover some pretty cool things about the people we train with. Our team members have amazing stories. Troy Moser is one of those team members with an amazing story.
Troy is well known in the Elevate training environment as a strong talented athlete. No one can dispute that fact! His tradition of athletic excellence started as a teenager growing up in Rock Port, Mo playing football all 4 years of high school as well as wrestling and throwing the shot put. Did you know that Troy is also married, has 2 kids, and owns an architecture studio? Read on!
He has been a consistent member of the Elevate family for 5 years a, joining us when his daughter Heidi was being coached by Brad in our Junior Golf Performance program. Shortly after that, Troy’s son William joined our Junior Athlete program. Heidi has since gone on to play collegiate golf and William is a strong player for the Coronado high school golf team. (Coronado’s golf team trains in our facility, so we get to see William a couple of times a week!)
Troy met his wife Jill at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln where Troy earned both a bachelors degree and a masters degree in architecture. Fast forward to 1996 when he and Jill moved to Las Vegas. Troys architecture skills really started to shine with the re-design of the MGM entrance (the infamous huge gold lion? Yep. That’s Troys!) and Las Vegas’s first mega night club, Studio 54. He later worked for Wynn Design and Development as the lead architect for many of the shops, restaurants and features at Wynn properties.
Take another fast forward to 2005. Troy opened his own architecture firm, Moser Architecture Studio. MAS is responsible for the design of MJ One Theater at Mandalay Bay, the remodel of the Bellagio Casino, and an endless list of restaurants within several casinos.
Second to his family, Troy is deeply committed to investing in his community. He and Jill received the “Great Friend to Kids” award for their involvement with the Children’s Discovery Museum. The Moser family is very active in their church, Green Valley United Methodist Church, where they teach Sunday School. (If you want to see just how cool Troy’s work is, check out GVUMC on the NW corner of Green Valley parkway and Robindale. Prepare to be impressed!) Troy and MAS are also committed to doing pro bono work for local organizations such as the Salvation Army, and Veteran’s Village, having just signed on to assist in the development of a new multi-family complex that will provide housing for women and their families as they transition from homeless situations. So far it sounds like Troy is all about work. Not true!
His off the clock, and out of the gym addiction (his words not mine!) includes multiple DIY projects around his home. Being somewhat of a perfectionist, he would rather see a project sit briefly unfinished until he’s sure of it’s perfect design, than rush to complete it. His current project is a new home bar that includes a built in, 3 keg beer tap, so there will always be at least 2 beers on tap in the Moser home at all times! This will come in handy because of Troy’s love of all things sports, including Nebraska Husker sports, LV Golden Knights, UNLV Rebels, and the list goes on.
So, now you know a little more about Troy, his family and his outside-of-Elevate life. (And maybe, just maybe, we can convince Troy to invite us over for a beer when he finishes the bar!)
Cheers Troy, and thanks for being such a great addition to the Elevate family.
