I am a proud father of a daughter (7) and son (2). I am lucky to have a great wife who, along with some colleagues, badgered me for two years to try Crossfit. I finally caved and said I would try it, maybe it would help my cycling. Turn the clock forward five years and this Crossfit has become my sport and passion. Having been a competitive athlete, football, hockey, baseball in high school and playing college hockey at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, crossfit makes me feel like a kid again playing sports. I am fortunate to train with a great coach and gym. The inspiration and support we provide each other is second to none. I am looking forward to the 2014 Games.
