- When did you start CrossFit?  Jun 2011

- When did you start coaching?  May 2012 

- What is your job (outside CFO)? Father, Husband, Youth Sports Coach and maybe Therapist, Educator, Hype Man could be added along side Gym Owner

- What has CrossFit done for you? It has changed the way I look at fitness and wellness for myself and my family.  I didn’t know that something that looks so hard can be adapted to literally any persons goals.  I was searching for something to replace my desire to compete in sports because I always felt broken playing hoops 4-5 days a week.  The result was I became a healthier, stronger athlete in my late 30s than I was in my 20s in college.  I can jump just as high, run just as fast and now continue to PR on strength work into my early 40s so let’s just say IT WORKS!

- What is your favorite thing about CrossFit?  The easy answer for me is the community because I don’t think you will find any fitness or wellness group in the world that are passionate about and celebrate others successes equally to their own.  “CrossFit never gets easy, you just get better” so having the push and support of our Box family will push us all past what we thought was possible.

- When did you start CrossFit?  Sept 2011

- When did you start coaching?  July 2017

- What is your job (outside CFO)? Coaching is my secondary job at CFO. My first job is Business Management including Community Development 

- What has CrossFit done for you? It instantly filled a void left by participating in team sports my whole life. I’ve never been the type to exercise on my own. I tried all the normal things (running, classes, personal trainers, etc) but nothing gave me that sense of competition and belonging like CrossFit. I was never the best athlete but I was always the on-field captain because I gave 100% to the team. Rarely do I give myself 100%, this environment brought back a side of me I had lost and once found it carried over into so many aspects of my life and I felt like myself again. 

- What is your favorite thing about CrossFit?  Two things stand out far above all the others 1. The sense of challenge and empowerment you see in the athletes and feel for yourself that comes from doing something you didn’t think you could. 2. The loyalty and support of the CrossFit Oswego community year after year.

- What has CrossFit done for you? Over the years, my reasons for crossfitting have remained fluid, ranging from a desire to compete in a physically and mentally challenging sport, to being necessary for my mental and emotional health, to career injury prevention, to keeping my body strong and capable through pregnancy and birth...and I'm sure they will keep evolving!

- What is your favorite thing about CrossFit?  My favorite aspects of CrossFit are the global community and the way in which the workouts can be adapted for athletes of all ages and abilities. I have taken classes, clinics and workshops at boxes around the world, and what I love is how the movements, technique, supportive people, and fist bumps are the same in every country, in every language.
