My first interaction with CrossFit was in 2003 while aboard an aircraft carrier in the United States Navy. A few of my friends were doing it and made me participate in their miserable fun. I would love to tell you that right there and then I dove right into CrossFit and never looked back, but I hated it and never did it again while I served. I was more interested in lifting weights and taking 5 minutes of rest to talk to friends. It wasn’t until I got out of the Navy that I started working for a national cookie cutter gym as a personal trainer where CrossFit showed up once again. I wanted to better myself through fitness so why not try this CrossFit thing, it looked tough enough. Of course my first workout was “Fran” and it forever changed my life, i was enduringly hooked!
My goal as a coach is to pass on passion and knowledge, get people moving more efficiently, and make the impossible possible.
