About Coach

I grew up playing Football and Wrestling. Even went on to play for 4 years at a small Division III school. After college, I kept in shape by competing in Powerlifting. Then, before I knew it, I was 260 lbs. While I was strong, I could not move well and weight gain had crept up on me. In 2013 I found Crossfit and fell in love with the fitness model and the competitiveness of it all. I am happy to say I am down to my college playing weight, 205lbs, and have been for the past 5 years. Faith, Family, and Fitness are the 3 most important things in my life. About a year and a half ago, I was writing in my journal trying to figure out what to do next after closing my business due to the pandemic. I wrote those three words down in my journal and it hit me across the face. Why don't you use the skills you have gained in your career/business and use them to run a Crossfit box? That way, you get to use your skills and do something you love. All the while helping others be successful through fitness. Currently a CF-L1 Trainer, I am excited to share with you what I have learned and to help you on your fitness journey.

Turning Point

The turning point for me was when; I gained weight, stopped squatting due to pain, and could not run from here to there. Then, I found Crossfit and a coach that could help me and keep me accountable for my actions. I had to check my ego a bit and relearn everything. However, what I found was a new lease on life when the fruits of my labor started to pay off.

Motivation & Passion

One of the greatest parts about coaching is; when a member sees the fruits of all the work and training. They get that big smile and achieve what they have been working towards. I welcome the opportunity to help guide others to see what they are capable of.
