Born and raised in Idaho I played a lot of sports growing up. Tennis, football, basketball were the tradition throughout the year, skiing and snowboarding kept the winters entertained. I graduated from the University of Idaho in 2006 and promptly relocated to Southern California with my wife shortly after to go to work for a motorsports facility in Monterey, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. One day I came across an article in Men's Health about internet training resources and found a reference to CrossFit. The "Toughest Workout Ever!" tagline was catchy, so I started checking the website daily. After a full year of checking the website and reading each WOD would I scrounge up the courage to actually try one. "How hard could 8 rounds of air squats really be?" I thought. The rest is history. Now I run the day-to-day of Alec Hanson's gym CrossFit Costa Mesa. My whole life is now invested in CrossFit. It's a career change I was reticent to make but couldn't be happier with the decision. Looking forward to the Open and the 2012 Games.
