I don’t like to talk about myself in third person because it makes me feel silly….like I’m trying to be a professional athlete, or Kanye West. So I’ll just tell you my CrossFit story, if you have a moment. A friend turned me on to crossfit.com back in the early/mid aughts. I’ve always been active in general, with both working out and sports, and I was always on the lookout for new, interesting things to add to my routine. I started adding a few CF exercises to my garage-gym routine, but wasn’t able to join a box at the time because there was only 1 in Central Florida and it was nowhere near me.

CFO opened in November 2009. It took me a couple of months to get around to checking it out but once I did (early 2010), I was hooked. I did the Free Intro Class one evening and started coming to classes the next morning. I jumped right in with 5 or 6 days a week and never looked back. I immersed myself in CrossFit (as many will), going back and reading the first 150 or so CrossFit Journal articles, mostly by Glassman himself, and trying to wrap my head around what I had discovered. In August 2011, I got my L1 and immediately started coaching. In November 2013, Lou and I took over CrossFit Orlando. The rest is history, as they say.

My goal is to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be. Let me know how I can help.
