3, 2, 1 GO! … In my early years I played Hockey during the winter and kept busy in the summer with Softball. Prior to joining CrossFit I was training in Thai Boxing and used jogging, cycling, and traditional weight training as auxiliary components of my work out routine. I severely injured my knee in a motor vehicle accident (compound fracture) which side lined any and all training, it was a hard pill to swallow but I had to put training on the back burner. Hello rehab. During my rehabilitation I began educating myself on my injury and wanted to ensure I was back at or close to 100% (really hoping to be at 110%+). During rehab, my wife Erin thought it would be a good idea to look into “CrossFit” as she knew I would eventually need something that fulfilled my adrenaline rush. I slowly removed myself from conventional rehab and used CrossFit as my new method of rehabilitation. In November of 2010 I was introduced to this thing called a WOD, and have not turned back since. Every day being a new challenge and new experience made me gravitate towards this method of training and it soon became habitual. CrossFit has encouraged me to reach a level of fitness I did not know existed, which has expanded my character and determination to push and succeed in all areas of life. Witnessing that this system is highly effective lead me to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 Training Certificate. I did not only want to gain a deeper understanding of the methodologies, I wanted the opportunity to help others experience what I have experienced. I continue to absorb as much info as possible, constantly learning, as this journey is never ending. In my classes I offer a non-judgmental environment where participants know they will be guided into proper form and technique, while challenging them so that they can meet and exceed their fitness goals. … TIME!
