How did you get into fitness and or CrossFit?
 Eight years ago I worked at Athletico as a personal trainer. One day they hired a new employee, a marine veteran back from duty, to implement a “Crossfit” program. I had heard a little about it at the time but it was nowhere near the popularity it is now. He built the program at the gym and introduced me to all things Crossfit. I still remember doing my first “WOD” Morrison and how long it took me. It definitely was an instant high after the workout and was like nothing I had ever done before. The shared suffering and the bonds created from doing the same workout together is what make Crossfit so special. And also the reason we can’t stop talking about it! 😛

How long have you been doing CrossFit for?  8 years

What made you want to become a CrossFit Trainer?
I was working out at Crossfit Warehouse and was just obsessed with Crossfit. I had a background in personal and group training and was studying to become a P.E. teacher at the time. I thought adding a Crossfit Certification fit perfectly and was right up my alley. I love every minute of coaching and watching the members push themselves as hard as they can.

What are some of the things you are most proud of accomplishing in and outside the gym?
It sounds cliché but being a father and husband are my proudest accomplishments outside of the gym. Inside the gym it has to be memories of competing with Warehouse Members in competitions, completing Tough Mudders with members, and any time I’m able to throw down with other members and just be a part of the class. I am also extremely proud of the close-knit relationships/friendships created at the 5:00 a.m. class that I coach. They are a great group of individuals and are super unique. Proud to be able to coach them and call them my friends.

What are some of your goals you have yet to accomplish but hope to someday?
I’d like to do another Crossfit Competition in the future. I am also trying to be more mindful of the things I eat on a day-to-day basis. And overall, just staying as consistent as possible with a 1 year old and 3 year old at home… 😛

What CrossFit movements would make up your favorite WOD?
I love ascending rep schemes and smaller numbers. A favorite WOD would probably look something like the one below… I’ll have to try it…

200 M Row
2 Muscle Ups
2 Thrusters (115lb)
2 Lateral Barbell Burpees
Starting at 2 then increasing to 4…6…8…10

 What is your favorite music or favorite song to listen to while doing a WOD?
 Current Favorite Power Songs:
Illusion – Bassnectar
MegaMan – Lil Wayne
The Search – NF
Purple Lamborghini – Rick Ross
Bodies – Drowining Pool
 And a million others…
