I have always been into sports and somewhat into fitness. I spent eight years in the Marine Corps, where fitness was a necessity. After learning about Crossfit while on a deployment to Afghanistan. It just made sense. It was fast, effective, and kept me hooked. I first got certified in hopes of becoming a better athlete. After I began to coach, I fell in love with it. I cant explain how satisfying it is to watch someone succeed at something they never though possible. Its amazing to see the look on a persons face when they lift a heavy weight for the first time or get their first pull up. Coaches help athletes unlock the things they were already capable of.

Your success is my success

  • I am originally from Oregon where I grew up playing all sports so I have a love for fitness and competition. I served 9 years in the US Navy which is where I discovered Crossfit. While on recruiting duty in 2010 I realized I had become out of shape from sitting at a desk all day and decided I had to do something. I started Crossfit and lost 70 pounds and have not looked back since. After getting fit again I realized this was my calling, to help as many people as I can get into shape and help athletes improve their fitness level. I love crossfit and have a strong passion for fitness, healthy living and Olympic lifting. The best day at the gym for me is coaching someone to reach a goal they have been striving for or when a member hits a new PR.

  • I grew up playing baseball, which instilled a sense of competitiveness in me. When I quit baseball, I began working out the “traditional” way. The question of how fit I was lingered in my mind until CrossFit came into my life. I found CrossFit in August of 2010 and graduated The University of Southern Mississippi in 2011. Since then, I have not looked back. I began training athletes in July of 2014. I love to teach and pass on the knowledge that has been given to me by others. CrossFit has changed the way I live my life and has placed me in a supportive community. To help someone achieve their goals and do something they once thought they couldn’t is a feeling words cannot express. It’s my goal to help you reach your goals and to be better than you were yesterday.
