I was was initially introduced to CrossFit through Kelly Starrett who runs San Francisco CrossFit and the Mobility WoD. At the time I was recovering from a series of very complicated knee procedures (3 surgeries in this case for a biological knee replacement), he was my physical therapists and said in more than a few of our many sessions “Hey once you get back on your feet you should try CrossFit.” I mulled it over for a few months during our therapy sessions and when I finally was able to walk I tried my first class. It was a humbling experience and I wanted more.
Now I am a firm believer the physical skill sets CrossFit trains combined with solid programming will get anyone into incredible shape (that includes YOU), have a lot of fun getting there, improve performance in other sports and achieve milestones you never thought possible, while preventing health disorders and surgeries so you can keep active and playing through age. I would like to thank the coaches that helped me develop my foundation. I feel I am a perpetual student to this incredible sport and will do my best to impart knowledge and motivate.
In my earlier days I played competitive basketball and volleyball, ran track with a PR in the mile at 4:10, taught Phys Ed, coached basketball, tennis and volleyball and worked sales for various Internet companies. I graduated from Virginia Tech and MBA from Thunderbird.
I love CrossFit. It’s changed my life and hope it can change yours. I will do my best to work with you closely and attentively. But also be patient in your training. It's my philosophy to start slowly and learn the foundations of movements thoroughly. Even if the workouts will be scaled or those around you are doing more this is your fitness and your path. Focus on solid form and correct movement. Now lets begin your fitness journey together and have some fun getting in shape!
