I didn’t start my fitness journey until my early 20’s when I went to college and gained the freshman “40”. I started running which led me to running half and full marathons before discovering Martial Arts. In my 30’s I started competing in amateur kickboxing and USA Boxing. To help improve my conditioning, a friend suggested CrossFit in 2008 and I was hooked. I love all types of fitness and continue to cross train in martial arts, adventure races, or competing in local CrossFit competitions.

At the age of 39, I was a husband, father of two young boys and working a full time management position. It was noticeable the past few years of failing to prioritize exercise took their toll. This was very difficult for me both mentally and physically, as I was always active in sports. I wanted to get in the best shape of my life by age 40, but had no idea how. Then my wife suggested I should try CrossFit. I joined a local affiliate soon thereafter and it has been a passion of mine ever since. It was amazing how the CrossFit workout methodology yielded the physical results I was looking for. What I didn’t expect was how motivating mentally it would be. To walk out of class each day with a sense of accomplishment provided my soul such an uplift. The best part was being able to share it with multiple people. The positive community vibe you get to experience is unlike anything else. I recently became a coach to make a difference in people’s lives. I want to see other individuals achieve their fitness goals and experience the other positive benefits.
I came to CrossFit after having “tried it all”. I played sports growing up and the need to be active continued into adulthood. I’ve played on adult women’s and co-ed basketball, soccer, volleyball and softball teams. I’ve also taken about any class that’s been offered, from trapeze to hot yoga to boxing to zumba. When I decided to try CrossFit in 2010, I found my home. I have never once gotten bored or felt the urge to move on. In fact, I feel more invigorated and dedicated to the sport than ever! The constant variety and ability to see real progress towards personal goals motivates me every day. I recently decided to become a coach and am so happy to share my love of CrossFit with members of all ages and fitness levels.
