CrossFit is the most life changing activity that I have ever been involved in. It has become my passion and way of life. Every day, I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with others and having the opportunity to assist our members in achieving their goals.

I’ll never forget my first CrossFit workout in 2010. It was a great workout, but even more than that, it was fun! I was hooked right from the start. It brought in all the elements of fun and adventure that I remembered from having an active, outdoor childhood. Pushing, pulling, jumping, climbing. . . it’s all in there. I’m convinced that exercise is the fountain of youth. CrossFit has had such a positive impact on my life and I love helping others experience that as well.”

I truly don’t know where I would be right now if it wasn’t for CrossFit. I am so glad that I found it at somewhat of a young age (21). It has taught me how to take the best care of myself, gotten me through two pregnancies, helped me bounce back from pregnancy, it helps keep up with a toddler and have the energy (and sanity) to get through the day. I get to be an active, hands on parent instead of sit on the sidelines. CrossFit improves my quality of life in so many different ways and coaching allows me to help others do the same!

CrossFit is so much more than a workout to me. It’s how I keep up with my two active boys. It’s how I relieve stress. It’s how I take care of my body. And coaching allows me to share my love of CrossFit with others while helping them to achieve things they never thought they could do!

I’ve been doing CrossFit since August 2014. I discovered the movement after getting bored with powerlifting by myself for a couple years. I wanted to find a more communal environment for getting in shape, similar to the camaraderie I associated with sports in high school and this is it. I am father of three and I love running the kids class showing them that fitness is about getting active and having fun. Outside of the gym, I’m a HVAC technician and I’ve done work in most of the large scale jobs around Indianapolis in the past decade. I enjoy being outside anyway I can. My kids and I like to go swimming, hiking, throw a frisbee, and anything active outdoors. My favorite movements in CrossFit are rope climbs, ring dips, and anything with a kettlebell.
