Love my family and love encouraging them to pursue athletic dreams. I am continually amazed at how God has created us to respond positively to exercise. Fitness is as essential as the air we breathe or the water we drink. The physiology of the human body is an incredible miracle of design. I did lots of sports growing up in high school and college, mostly football and track and field. My Dad especially encouraged us in sports. Later on I got into triathlons and motocross. About a year and a half ago I started trying out CrossFit but got more serious around May of 2012. It is quite an understatement to say I'm hooked. Recently we opened up Screaming Eagle CrossFit and now I'm able to share the passion of fitness every day with everyone who comes into the gym. I think Crossfit is becoming the most contagious sport on the planet, and with so many people suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure etc. it is a sport whose time has come.
