Played sports since I was able to walk, and after culminating my baseball career at Elon University I found myself without the physical and competitive outlet I’d had my whole life. I tried the standard bodybuilding routine, but was bored within months. Then in the summer of 2008 I found CrossFit, and haven’t looked back since.
From the start, I was a knowledge whore and received my CrossFit Level 1 certification before the end of the year. I couldn’t learn enough, and CrossFit opened up my eyes to just how little I knew and how much there is to learn. I’m still a CrossFit nerd today, and there is nothing I enjoy more than geeking out on all aspects of fitness, nutrition and programming. Brandon and I have been crossfitting together since 2009, and had to learn a lot by trial and error. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in regards to CrossFit and training, but I’ve learned from every one of them and I’m still learning more and more every day. I’ve been part of a number of CrossFit gyms, and seen the fitness program as well as the sport grow immensely over these past 6 years. I think I have enough experience in CrossFit to honestly state that you won’t find a better gym anywhere else, and I hope to help keep it that way.
I’m a huge sports fan, and a fanatic when it comes to Braves baseball and UNC basketball. My wife and I are some of the original members of CF Bound. When we aren’t at work, we are almost always at the gym, along with a crazy pup, Reese. I’m one of the brave souls who you’ll find at the gym at 5:30AM almost every day. Please introduce yourself, and don’t hesitate to ask me any and all questions you may have.
