I was born and raised right here in good ole Brownsburg, IN. Attended St. Malachy for gradeschool/Jr. High and graduated from Brownsburg High School. After high school I moved to Charlotte, NC area for a couple years then in northern CA for a bit then back to NC. I met my wife Tabitha in Massachusetts (at Gilette Stadium of all places however this didn’t change my distaste for the Patriots)we moved back to the Burg in 06’ to be closer to family and friends. Not to mention enjoy the vast Indiana landscape!
I wanted to try it back in 2008 and suffered a neck injury at work that impeded me for some time. After my recovery I noticed CF317 at the first location off 267 and really wanted to check it out. It wasn’t until the big move to the current building that actually got me thru the door. Probably had a little to do with the new location being a stones throw from my home base now! Knowing what I know now I regret waiting until the move.
I don’t remember it exactly (I blame partial blackouts during first WOD jk) I know it involved way more wallball shots then I was prepared for and more running than I had done in years!
First week of July 2013 I started the kickoff course.
Sure is! Almost a full year already!
Right away!! Even before I started my first WOD Coach Kirk was taking me on the “tour” the immediate sense of community and the confidence of Coach Ashley and Coach Kirk in me to accomplish my goals was exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I am very proud to say I have achieved all of my short term goals which included losing weight (lost 60lbs. so far), being able to Rx WODs, and able to complete majority of movements. I’ll get those handstand walks one day. I’m coming for ya Matt K.!! For the long term I want to continue to get better all around especially on form and maybe just maybe get as strong as Coach James!
Convincing Tabitha to marry me!
Favorite WOD: Any team WOD I make a living in a team environment and really enjoy those workouts they seem to get the best out of me.
Least Favorite WOD: Anything with a 40 min time cap you know your in for it then!!
Favorite Movement: Split Jerk
Least Favorite Movement: Snatch
