For as long as I can remember I have been interested in every sport and physical activity imaginable. As soon as i started football, at age 13, i immediately began working out. I became interested in how the body works and ways to improve human performance. The more I worked out, the more i ate and the bigger i became – That’s how it works right? At my largest I was 6’3”, weighing in at 270 lbs. When football ended though, I realized walking around so big and eating everything in sight was not exactly the healthiest situation. Within the next 10-12 months I dropped down to around 200 pounds by changing my diet. It was not until 2010 that I found CrossFit. As soon as I tried it I realized this was exactly what I was looking for in terms of my next athletic experience. Before CrossFit I had been exercising with coaches who had a more specific focus on agility, powerlifting, and strength. I was excited to find a new activity with day-to-day challenges and the competitiveness of team sports. The camaraderie and support everyone continually shows for each other was very inspiring. After doing my research, working under great mentors, and experiencing myself, I realized this was my purpose-along with making it to the CrossFit games (LOL). Ultimately, I want to share my knowledge and help others succeed in reaching their physical and mental health goals.
