I lost my Crossfit-cherry in 2014. I was fat, bloated, and deconditioned, I could not deadlift half my body weight, had no pull-ups, few sit-ups, and struggled to do four pushups without stopping for a snack. I was working to qualify for the US Olympic shooting team and wanted to get into shape to compete with the younger shooters. That dream died with the Rio Olympic Games. By then I had fallen into love with CrossFit. Since 2014 I have lost 80 pounds of fat and gained 30 pounds of muscle. I have competed in several local competitions. Including the state Olympic Weightlifting meet. In the 2017 CrossFit Open I ranked as the 573 fittest man in my age group (top 16%). I know I can do better! I enjoy coaching new and experienced athletes and have a keen interest in getting people my age back into shape. My greatest thrill as a coach is helping a new members learn to move better and improve their fitness so they can enjoy more of life.
