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 former collegiate athletes feeds my competitive side and challenges me in new ways. I never get bored.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I train other people

I started crossfit when I joined LAX Crossfit in spring of '12. When I was deployed to Afghanistan Oct '12 - April '13 I worked out with some incredibly motivated athletes at two different FOBs and Boxes - Kandahar CrossFit and CrossFit Leatherneck. I had the opportunity to compete in Regionals as an individual in the Asia region in 2013 and SoCal Region in 2014. In 2015 I moved to Texas for work and had a blast competing as a Team Athlete in the South Region. I train hard while not losing sight of why I started crossfit - to HAVE FUN and push myself to new levels every week!

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
