Brian Wilson

I was a Division I baseball player in college who transitioned into a triathlete, marathoner, and adventure racer. As the time and expense continued to grow with those hobbies, it butted up against my career as a Marine Corps Officer. I needed to shift gears and I started training with the more traditional body building approach that is pretty common in the military. The longer I stuck with this, the further out of shape I became and it wasn’t dependent on the time commitment (or supplement dollars) I threw at it. After several years of frustration with this routine, I was introduced to CrossFit. Thus, the addiction began. I’ve been CrossFitting fairly religiously since 2006 and after I got my Level I Certification was completely committed to opening a box. So here we are, Patriot and Potomac CrossFit (PCF).

In addition to coaching at PCF, I’m the Co-Founder and Director of Training at CrossFit Walter Reed, which trains amputees and wounded service personnel at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
