I was introduced to CrossFit in January 2011, and I was hooked after my first WOD — an excruciating 7-minute Grace.
At first the philosophy of CrossFit was appealing and helpful to my outdoor-focused lifestyle. Being an avid mountain biker, snowboarder, and trail runner required constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. CrossFit was the perfect complement. Having spent some time coaching youth sports, coaching CrossFit seemed a natural progression after a few years.
I really enjoy helping people improve, especially those new to CrossFit, reach their goals, and recognize their accomplishments. I hold certifications as a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1) as well as a USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach.
