Going to the gym didn’t motivate me anymore, so I started CrossFit in January 2012 in search of something that was more challenging. My initial experience was not a good one. In fact, due to my lack of flexibility I almost fell through the window trying to lift 65lbs over my head. Initially, I was embarrassed, but tired of feeling defeated and frustrated; as I had been for the last few years. So I stuck it out and with each workout, I became more and more motivated and energized. I began to see results, like improved flexibility, more strength, and weight loss. CrossFit helped me make a lifestyle change that has affected so may aspects of my life – in a good way.
For most of my career, I worked in the corporate world in management, sales, operations, retail and distribution. But after years of running myself into the ground, I made a decision that would affect the well-being of my life and my family. I decided to transfer my skills and do what I love most – help people. That’s basically what it comes down to.
I’m a simple guy with simple values. Family and friends, that is what is important to me. And I pride myself on being a good listener, so as a coach I try to find ways to motivate and encourage athletes to do better. As an owner, I want to create a community where people can feel supported and welcomed. Where no matter your level of fitness, you come to CWS to be challenged!
