Bio

I grew up in Canada, and moved to the US in 2000. That year I started working out at a typical gym with typical machine-centered workout routines. Over the years I added more variety and complexity. A co-worker told me about CrossFit in 2009, and I was hooked. I started following mainsite on my own, then joined Crossfit Northwest in Bellevue in 2010. I competed in the 2011 open, and then for the following year I worked on my weaknesses. I moved to Zurich, Switzerland in 2011 and joined Crossfit Zurich. I follow mainsite WODs but add my own programming, mostly short extra workouts focused on weaknesses.
