I started CrossFit back in 2009, ready to make a life change for my health’s sake. I had become very out of shape and overweight and it was beginning to give me health problems. After some research, I chose CrossFit. I was looking for a challenging training program that I would also look forward to coming to everyday. Jenn and I had done the globo gym routine and had become quite bored with it. I was excited to see what “Forging Elite Fitness” was all about and I have to say almost 10 years later I have not been disappointed as their are new challenges everyday!

I got into coaching because I had a desire to help others regardless of age achieve their fitness goals. In particular with two young sons when I started, my wife Jenn and I really wanted to make an impact with CrossFit Kids /Teens. I still get genuinely happy as a Coach to see an athlete hit a new PR especially when it was a hard skill or movement they didn’t think they could accomplish.
