How did you get into Crossfit? I heard about it from a coach at a strength and conditioning gym I was going to. Someone asked the coach how many box jumps we were doing in the workout and he said, "Just 20, nothing crazy like CrossFit." And I was like what's CrossFit? 

  •  

 From where does your passion for fitness and  healthy living stem? I believe that the gym is the most pure litmus test for how a person does everything in their life and if I can make progress in the gym, that progress sends ripples across my entire modus operandi. 

  •  

What are some of the benefits you have seen from doing CrossFit? I am a more capable and better moving athlete than I was in high school. Just a whole lot more careful. 

  •  

 Why do you coach, what motivates you to teach? I love helping people engrain proper functional movement patterns into their lives and know these patterns will prolong their ability to pursue the enjoyable exploration of this world.
