My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I started playing soccer when I was 4 and I played college soccer at the U.S. Air Force Academy. I fell in love with CrossFit for the same reason many ex-athletes have...it feeds my competitive side and challenges me in entirely new ways.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I train other people
I first tried/dabbled in CrossFit on my own by figuring out WODs/exercises on the main site. I became addicted when I joined my box CrossFit LAX last spring. When I was deployed to Afghanistan Oct '12 - April '13 I had the chance to work out with some incredibly motivated athletes at two different FOBs and Boxes - Kandahar CrossFit and CrossFit Leatherneck. My time there brought me to many firsts - bar muscle up, ring muscle up and countless PRs. It was truly a unique experience to work out there and I will never forget the vibe and people that made it the best box in the worst place!!
