My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I cannot remember a time in my life when I haven't been involved in competitive sports. Most notably I swam from the age of 6 to 18 and I competed in indoor and beach volleyball which I started at the age of 12. I played for the Lethbridge College Kodiaks men's indoor volleyball program. In Australia I played for the Griffith University men's indoor team and I competed on the QLD AA Beach Volleyball tour in 2012. I have been very lucky to have many amazing coaches throughout the years.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I was first introduced to CrossFit by my volleyball coach Ian Bennett and by watching videos of Olympic beach volleyball player Martin Reader. When I moved from Canada to Australia to finish my University degree in 2012 I joined CrossFit Broadbeach. After surprising myself with a top 5 placing at my first individual competition I decided to set my sights on AUS Regionals. The 2013 Open and Regionals were a great experience and I'm excited to continue progressing here in Canada West. Maybe show these Canucks what Straya's all about!
My Work/Rest Schedule
I train very early in the morning.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Proud member of CrossFit BroadBeach Australia from April 2012 until July 2013. That place will always be my second home. I miss my CFBB family and all the amazing times I had with Coach Drew. I am currently a member of CFOK where I continue my love of becoming ridiculously elite...
