My life has always been full of competition, whether it be trying to best one of my three brothers, beat my friends in a bear crawl race, or participating in a variety of different sports. At one point in high school, I was involved in powerlifting, track, baseball, and the golf team. We only had 25 or so athletes in the school. So we did it all. I went on to The Ohio State and stopped competing allowing the “college life” to take over. I ended up with a B.S. in Health Sciences and a severe case of “I don’t move enough”. After college, I moved to New Orleans and worked as a personal trainer at a local fitness club. In 2010, I stumbled into a CrossFit gym in Nola and knew this was it – I was home. The CrossFit community is amazing and makes me want to be a better person, brother, friend and ultimately help others in any way I can. I love this community and am thrilled every day to be a part of it!
