Bio

In December of 2010, at 275 pounds, I suffered a major stroke. I was completely paralyzed on my left side but by the grace of God I had a full recovery. During my down time from the stroke I gained another 25 pounds. I had a wake up call and decided I needed to do something about my weight. I started working out in my basement but didn't have a program to follow and felt I was missing something. While searching online I found crossfit and decided to try it. I have been hooked ever since. I went from a 42 inch waist to a 34 and making strides everyday. I still enjoy all aspects of crossfit and look forward to the Open every year.
