Grew up playing soccer and football as a kid. I really got into skateboarding in my teenage years. It wasn't till 1999 that I first set foot in a weight room, and really fell in love with bodybuilding and powerlifting. After high school I decided I wanted to help people set and achieve their fitness goals. I went to college in California and studied sports nutrition and sports physiology.
I remember stumbling upon the Crossfit Games on tv in 2014, watching these people running and lifting and other crazy stuff, and thinking I could do that. I sought out a Crossfit gym shortly after thinking I was going to crush the workout and blow everyone away......I didn't. It was one of the hardest workouts I'd ever done and I was the last person to finish it. I was hooked, I had to get back and find out how to get better.
At the beginning of 2017 I decided I didn't want to just train in Crossfit but to help train others. I received my CF-L1 in February of 2017 and have been actively helping people set and achieve their fitness goals since. As of April, 2018 I have officially become a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and still love every step of this journey!
