A retired high school P.E./welding teacher, coached high school wrestling for 33 years and in the last 3, I became acquainted with CrossFit. Wow, was it an effective training method for my wrestlers. Having coached my entire adult life it was natural to move into the CrossFit world when I retired from coaching and teaching. My wife, Tami, and I opened and own Stand Firm CrossFit in Granby, Colorado where we are privileged to work with many incredible people from every walk of life. For me everyday in the CrossFit gym is like a great day in the wrestling room. Athletes working really hard, leaving everything they have on the floor everyday. I really enjoy the competitive side of CrossFit as well. What a great way to stoke those competitive fires. I was fortunate to compete in the 2017 and 2018 CrossFit Games, placing 3rd in 2018. What a fantastic experience, meeting many amazing and inspirational people along the way. Despite the fact that I am now a bit too old to realistically qualify for the Games, I do look forward to seeing how I stack up against the many 60+ CrossFit Athletes around the world. The 2020 CrossFit OPEN should be a lot of fun. Tami and I also help on the family ranch where we raise cattle and hay. We have four awesome grand-kids who we like to chase around. Needless to say we are very busy 365 days a year.
