I accidentally found CrossFit as a recreational soccer player when I signed up for personal training in February 2008 at a Gold’s Gym in York, Pa. The trainer with whom I was paired put me through CrossFit workouts and led me to CrossFit York later that year. At the time — with little athletic background to speak of — I could neither do a pull-up nor get much more than 45 lbs. over my head. Today, I have multiple Olympic-weightlifting competitions under my belt. I earned a bronze medal at the 2013 National Masters Weightlifting Championships and qualified for Pan American Masters. As well, I’ve been a coach to two 2013 National University Championships qualifiers.
As a coach, my goal is for you to have fun while learning technique so you can excel at CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting or whatever your heart desires—and, of course, for you to become fast, explosive and powerful.
