Bio

Been CrossFitting since 2008. Qualified and competed as an individual in every Northeast Regional with 9th as my best finish and 23rd in 2014. I opened CrossFit Syracuse in 2012 with my Wife and it’s the only box I have ever worked out at. I am coached by James Fitzgerald.

I started CrossFitting alone and learned how to perform the movements through videos on the Journal, other videos on the web, and the coaching I received during various certifications from CrossFit to USAW. Today I am the co-owner and head coach at CrossFit Syracuse. My days are filled with 1on1 clients ranging from 14 to 96 years old, group classes (love my members), and lots of mopping. My wife and I are blessed to have found CrossFit and our community...thanks guys.

I typically rest 4 or more days per month
