What year did you start CrossFitting?

February 2012, started coaching in August 2012.

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

After college basketball I was looking for something to fill the competitive void, and CrossFit was a great fit. I started out recreationally but soon became more and more competitive. I actually met my wife doing CrossFit, and we have competed together several times.

Why did you become a trainer?

I am very passionate about CrossFit and the impact it can have on your life. Having the opportunity to help people move better, live healthier and have more fulfilling lives is something I truly enjoy.

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

Favorite movement is muscle-ups, favorite workout would be Amanda or Murph.

What is your favorite cheat food?

Ice cream, or anything with chocolate and peanut butter.

What’s your favorite superhero and why?

Probably Batman, since he is somewhat self-made and has some awesome gadgets.
