Biography

Favorite WOD and why?

Without a doubt Harper. It is an official Hero WOD that I wrote for CrossFit HQ in honor of a friend that passed way to early.

Least Favorite WOD and why?

I truly love every CrossFit workout I have done but I would say Fight Gone Bad. The last time I did that WOD, the fight went very bad.

Time CrossFitting?

I started CrossFitting back in 2007 alone in a high school weight room. I was 2 years out of being a college athlete and it reminded me of what it was like to train when I was an athlete. The following year I had a few high school athletes CrossFit with me and the unofficial start of CrossFit Uprising began.

What does CrossFit mean to you?

CrossFit has literally changed my life. I love every one of my members, they are not just members to me they are all friends. I opened back in 2010 because I wanted to have an impact on peoples lives. I had too many jobs that left me feeling empty. I wanted to help train young athletes so they could play at the next level, I wanted to train adults so they could live healthier better lives, I wanted to train seniors so they could remember what it was like to be a bad ass. Owing and operating a gym has been great for my family. Although it can be challenging to get home late every night with young kids I would not trade that in for them to grow up around so many great, fit people that they can look up to as role models. I could write 10 pages on this topic but I will stop there.

Fitness/Athletic background?

I played baseball at Glendale Community College for 2 years then continued onto play D1 collegiate baseball at Coastal Carolina University. #tealnation

Workout Music of choice?

Everyone that knows me would think Taylor Swift would be the answer. Although it doesn’t get better than “Shake it Off” T-Swift Radio has too many slow songs. Black Eyed Peas Radio is my go to.
