Sports and fitness have always been a part of my life. I grew up playing all the usual youth team sports and joined the military right after high school. I was introduced to CrossFit on a deployment, but I didn’t take my first CrossFit class until I returned home. I still remember my first class in October 2010. It was simple and humbling and I was instantly hooked.
Within a year I got my Level 1 certification and began coaching part time shortly thereafter. Coaching has been a more enjoyable and rewarding experience than I expected. I always feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when I help someone achieve a first or help them do something they didn’t think they could do. If I am not at work or at the gym, I am probably spending time with my wife, Dana, and children, Gabe and Giuls.
