Introduction / Athletic Background:
I’ve been an athlete my entire life. I grew up around all sports, but was more driven towards the high intensity contact sports such as Football, Wrestling, and Lacrosse. I tried CrossFit in 2010 to get ready for a Wrestling camp and felt right at home with the similar fast paced, high intensity training. After High School, I played Lacrosse for the University of Oregon until I found CrossFit again in 2013.
CrossFit Experience / My Why:
When I stopped playing Lacrosse in college I needed something to keep me going so I found a CrossFit gym in my area. I didn't enjoy the “Globo” gym style of lifting and I wanted to stay physically competitive. At that time I was the most consistent I’d ever been with CrossFit and even managed to win two CrossFit competitions in the scaled team category. After college I found CrossFit T9000. I started coaching and became twice as consistent, and driven to compete. I’ve competed now in many CrossFit competitions and continue to do so. CrossFit has kept me the healthiest I’ve ever been, especially when I needed that after college, and allowed me to be the best version of me possible.
