Tell us about your sports & fitness background.

I played football in high school, I also ran track in high school and in college for 2 years. Then I would workout at gyms and at home.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD… what was it, and how did it feel? 

Just turning on the tv and watching the CrossFit games I think 2016 it really caught my eye and made me very interested. The first workout I tried was Murph and it was very very tough. I thought I knew all of those movements and I thought I was “fit”, but putting those movements together was a real reality check.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF? (before / after)

It’s ridiculous, I am currently in the best shape of my life. I am the fittest I’ve ever been in my life. 

My body fat is low, higher muscle mass. 

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected? 

The forefront of doing CrossFit is the mental capacity that I am getting better at. That is something I didn’t think was hard since I thought I was physically fit, but doing CrossFit its also a mental thing that you have to accomplish.

Please share with us any favorite CrossFit / CFS moments. 

My favorite moments would be the parties! Connors going away party was super fun. Also the Christmas party was fun! Just hanging out and being in a fun environment with everyone outside of working out. 

Also the 1k row was very memorable for me. 

It was the most painful workout I’ve done in this gym. 

Any advice for people just getting started? 

Take advantage of the beginners stage. Do what you can and be comfortable with it, relax your mind and just try your best!

What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?

Everything I do outside of CrossFit is Engineering, all things engineering, I can sit and watch YouTube videos on engineering all day! Another thing I like to do is watch Iron Man, I’ll watch and Avengers movie just because I like Iron Man. I also enjoy shooting I actually go shooting very often.
