PATRIARCH – A Tribute To Alpha Fathers. My father is a tough man. He was born and raised in Belize, a shit-hole country in Central America where many men are murdered by "machete chop" each day. His home had dirt floors, and he shared a bedroom with his 10 siblings. He had no shoes; he hunted, fished, or picked his food. If there was no food to be had, he'd go to sleep hungry and wake up glad. My father loved his childhood. I'm the son of a hard man, but I was raised in a soft world. Unlike my father, who learned to read on his own, I was educated in America. American schools, American media, American cheese. I love America, but it created something very different in me.

Born in 1979 in New York City, Elliott Hulse was introduced to physical exercise by his uncle, a gymnast and martial artist. Together with his three siblings, Elliott spent a lot of time in the basement of their house, where they had improvised a gym, learning how to do push ups and chin ups. His parents, Debbie and Edmund Hulse, approved of this and encouraged their children to be more physically active.
Elliott continued with active spars life in high school but in a form of football. He managed to get an athletic scholarship from St. John’s University. During his playing days for St. John, he played a defensive lineman and was a team captain. He was also named MVP of his division. However, disappointed with the curriculum, Elliot left college. While still attending, he opened his first gym, called Way Over. Unfortunately, he was forced to close it down in 2008, during the financial crisis. As an alternative source of income, he turned to YouTube and started making videos.
In 2002, just after leaving college, Elliott married Colleen, his long-time girlfriend. They have two daughters.
His YouTube followers quickly increased in numbers and people were eager to try his approach to fitness and started attending his Strength Camp seminars in droves. Soon, the number of his subscribers on his channel reached one million and he was making some serious money out of it.
During one of his trainings, he suffered an injury. Elliott tore his biceps, which forced him to reduce the number of videos he was making. As time progressed, he almost completely stopped updating his channel and found solace in meditation, which, according to him, immensely helped his recovery. His time away to gym allowed him to focus on his philosophy and he developed four levels of strength, physical, physiological, psychological and presentable strength. His book on the subject, KING: The Four Layer Approach to Becoming the Strongest Version of Yourself, was hugely successful among his followers.
All of these activities have Earned him a handy income and his net worth in 2019 is estimated at $2 million.
