I grew up in a family that encouraged competition and sport. Most of my childhood was spent playing ice hockey but as I matured, my interests broadened and I began participating in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, rock climbing, cycling and weightlifting.
I was initially talked into CrossFit by a friend and I’ve never looked back. I immediately fell in love with the way a WOD would make me feel. One hour of CrossFit made every other hour of the day seem easy. Voluntarily facing adversity on a daily basis made me mentally and physically stronger than I had ever been.
At the time, I worked on an ambulance responding to 911 calls. I frequently witnessed disease and injury directly caused by a lack of health and fitness. I then realized the best treatment for many diseases is prevention, not reaction. This ignited a passion to share and contribute to others health and fitness.
I began coaching CrossFit in late 2014 and as the years tick by, I have only become more convinced that CrossFit is much more than a fitness program. It’s a community that provides people the opportunity to develop the mindset and physical ability to accomplish anything. It’s a training methodology that can be used to compete, recover from injury or contribute to longevity. CrossFit has changed my life in so many ways, and I’m excited to share my knowledge and passion to help others achieve their goals.
