What year did you start CrossFitting?

2012.

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I got into CrossFit to become a better athlete for the sports I was playing, and I loved the challenge of it. It stuck with me even after my retirement from high school sports. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to make myself better day in and day out. When I started, I didn’t realize how much a community could change the way I view fitness. It’s definitely the everyday people that make me come back again and again.

Why did you become a trainer?

I really enjoy helping people become better and more fit than they were the day before. I love watching people progress as individuals. It’s satisfying knowing you are trying to make someone’s life better by making them healthier.

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

I enjoy a lot of movements, but my favorites are squat clean, muscle-ups, toes to bar, chest to bar, and hand stand push-ups.

What is your favorite cheat food?

Pizza

What’s your favorite superhero and why?

Batman, because of the Dark Knight Trilogy.
