I am a former Marine with over 25 years experience in Martial Arts, Personal Training & Massage Therapy. My wife Susan is also a Crossfitter & we are sharing the love of the sport with my 3 sons, grandsons & most recently parents, sisters & brother in-laws! Where most men my age say "I can't do that anymore," I find I am getting stronger & doing more than ever before! With my wife & CrossFit Vero Beach Coaches by my side I am looking forward to returning for a second year of competing at the CrossFit Games, seeing new and fellow Masters & most of all the Crossfit camaraderie!
