  • RCrossFit Level 1

Started CrossFit: June 2011

How long have you been a coach: Since September 2014

Favorite WOD: Possibly Grace although they’re all good depending on the day.

Least Favorite WOD: Possibly Grace although they all suck depending on the day.

What is your fitness background: Recreational sports in my teens. Adult life had been void of fitness until CrossFit.

What is your training like: I typically train just as I started, 3 times per week. I stick with the gym programming and sometimes come up with my own.

What is your diet/nutrition: I don’t follow a specific diet, although Zone would be a logical step for me. I try to eat clean. That has a big effect on my workout results. I take omega 3 supplements and that is all.

What are your goals: Lose some more weight, get stronger, become a better instructor. Take the CrossFit weightlifting trainer course.

What do you do outside the gym: I am a computer consultant. I specialize in TC/PIP networking and firewalls.

What do you like most about CrossFit: I like the fact that it scales and can be applied to anyone. The model just makes sense.

What drew you to CrossFit: My Chiropractor recommended it as a means to long term wellness.

How has CrossFit changed you: I have lost weight, gained muscle mass and strength. I am more confident

Why did you become a coach: It seemed like the right thing to do. Crossfit is more about learning rather than just doing. By becoming an instructor I help myself and hopefully I can pass on what I learn to others.
