HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH CROSSFIT?

My early career as a Police Officer is what led me to find CrossFit. I loved the way my new found “functional” fitness program helped me to perform better as a Police Officer and handle the rigors that the job entails.

Why you love CrossFit or choose to CrossFit?

I earned my Level 1 CrossFit certificate in the summer of 2014 and my USAW Level 1 certificate in 2016 and started training others. I have always had a passion for helping people and had plenty of opportunity as a Police Officer. I have coached high school soccer and baseball and was fortunate to play both sports in college. Being a CrossFit coach has given me a new opportunity to improve the lives of others everyday.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PHYSICAL ACCOMPLISHMENT?

My biggest physical accomplishment since joining the Crossfit Community has to be pushing myself to improve everyday and the mental rigors of recovering from shoulder surgery.
