MEMORABLE CROSSFIT EVENT:
I’ve had some unique opportunities and grown a lot since starting CrossFit,  both as an athlete and as a coach and in my perspective towards almost everything. The best and most memorable events have honestly been the daily training sessions with likeminded individuals who help push you further that you would alone. Small victories, setting personal bests, working on weaknesses and constantly improving- you can always be better.

MORE ABOUT ME:
I was introduced to CrossFit by a coworker in 2009, jumped into it, not really knowing what I was getting myself into. The plan was to compete in a local CrossFit competition in 3 months. I competed, got stomped all over the place and have been trying to improve since then.
