How did you get into CrossFit?
I received a gift card with 8 classes to try it out. After one class I was hooked. CrossFit provides a great variety of exercises challenging every part of the body, and some friendly competition. Something routine weight training didn’t provide. I enjoy the atmosphere on the turf, and the mild muscle soreness the day after a good workout reminding me how affective it was.
What sports have you played?
Football, baseball, basketball, soccer, softball and volleyball.
What’s a fun fact about you?
I flew an F-15 fighter jet over Alaska.
What are your hobbies?
Working out, spending time with my daughters and poker.
What are your goals (professional/athletic/life)?
Short-term is to continue to grow as an athlete and stay healthy, sharing my love for fitness with anyone coming out to the turf. Long-term is transition from my career in finance to a personal trainer in health and fitness.
