Knowledgeable, trained coaches to help you feel amazing





Because I had too much “energy” when I was 3, my parents threw me into gymnastics! I competed at a high level until the age of 14 when I focused on baseball.  During this time I was introduced to weightlifting but at the age of 16, I had 5 knee surgeries and never knew if I could play sports again.

The doctors told me I should never play high level sports again because I would continue to injure my knees. Thankfully, I learned to rehab my knees and came back stronger than ever and earned a scholarship to play shortstop at Austin Peay State University. There I met my amazing wife Katherine- and we’ve been married since 2003 right as I finished my BS in Chemistry. The next ten years I spent pretty bored in my fitness and hated going to the gyms.


That all changed when I finally joined a CrossFit Affiliate in 2012 & within four months saw incredible results.  My wife Katherine and I moved to Jordan in July 2013 and spend Crescent in October 2014.  We have three kids- Deborah 14, Isaac 12, Sammy 8. We look forward to expending their “energy” in CrossFit for years to come.  We’re excited to work with the Jordan Special Forces and the Amman community to develop courage that elite fitness brings.

As the youngest kid in a family of five members, I spent lots of time with my older sister when she used to take me with her to her Circassian Dancing practice and Kickboxing Practice sessions. She was my idol and I always wanted to be as good as she was. Sometimes the road to becoming a coach starts in weird ways!

Fortunately, when I was 9 years old I was old enough to join the kids Circassian Dancing Troup. So I started dancing and never stopped for the next 17 years. I was able to be one of the best dancers. However, being in an athletic family, my parents always tried to push me into martial arts like my sister. It was just not my thing. I would go but never committed for more than few months.
I started looking for other sports, and like any other guy, I wanted to have a sculpted muscular body, so I started going to the regular gym. But it was boring and I couldn’t commit. I kept to try to maintain a basic level of fitness.

That was my case up until I tried my first CrossFit class. I had heard about CrossFit and even read some articles about it. When I knew it had arrived in Jordan, I was anxious to try it finally. I did not even wait for my membership at the regular gym to end, I just immediately called and reserved my first session. Luckily, I had my first Essentials class in October 2014 at CrossFit Crescent.
When I first joined CrossFit, the immediate thing that I liked that it’s a community based sports. For me, coming from a group dancing atmosphere, I like the social part that comes along with the training. Only CrossFit was able to replace that atmosphere. It is a community within the box, within the rejoin, and even internationally. Whenever you bump into someone who does CrossFit, you will immediately feel the sports’ bond.


With every WOD (workout of the day) I do, I like CrossFit more & more. The WODs system and the group WODing together challenge you and push you beyond your limit every time, enabling you to learn new skills, see astonishing results, and more. I have finally found a sport that suits me perfectly, thus, I went through CF-Level 1 and now even my level 2- to learn more about CrossFit and to be able to share it with others.

I continue to proceed with my fitness experience, extended my knowledge and skill through other courses and research like, Yoga practice, personal training, human anatomy, kinesiology, and nutrition. All of this would allow me to help myself and others reaching more toward the best fitness and health parameters.

I look forward to meeting you at CrossFit Crescent! I even have my own Youtube Channel you can learn more about functional fitness from!

Since I was a kid, it was clear that I was an athlete. You could always find me climbing trees, running around the neighborhood, and riding my bicycle. I started being involved in every sports team my school had to offer, football, basketball, handball, volleyball, track & field, you name it! I was the football team captain for 4 consecutive years. Later on, I discovered that in order to stay a good athlete, I needed to work on being stronger, faster, more agile and balanced. I started joining local bodybuilding gyms, reading and learning more about sports and nutrition, and I was seeing results. In my senior year, I was named the Most Athletic.

I found passion in being fitter and healthier, and I knew I would like to influence people I know in what I’m doing. When CrossFit showed up around the globe, it hit me like a storm. I stopped going to regular gyms, and started training at CrossFit Crescent. This led to me taking the CrossFit Level 1 test, to direct my passion to a group of people that share a common goal, health and the love for the sport. Becoming a coach at CFC is a dream come true, and I look forward to helping you reach your goals, and then pushing those goals upwards.


I’ve had the opportunity to train the Special Forces of Jordan. But whether you are in Jordan’s Special Forces, or working at an insurance company- I’m excited to help! I help run an Essentials Class each month and would love to have you!

I’ve been doing sports since I was 7 years old like karate and football. I’m very passionate about everything that has to do with sports. I wanted to learn everything, so I chose physical education for my bachelor’s degree and started to work as a personal trainer at the same time, learning and teaching.

At my second year in university I tried some lesmills programs and I took GRIT for the first time giving group classes. At the end of the year, I tried CrossFit for the first time and I never felt that sore or that competitive about wanting to learn more. I quickly fell in love, and soon after, I took my L1.

I’ve been doing CrossFit for 5 years learning and teaching it. I was on and off trying to balance between work, university, and my own crossfit training.

When I graduated I started working as an EMS personal trainer but never stoped teaching CrossFit as a personal trainer. 2 years later I decided to dedicate my time and effort in coaching CrossFit at Crescent in Personal training and our group classes. I’m so excited about guiding others on their journey to feeling the best they have ever felt. Everyday is a new opportunity to learn something new to inspire and change someone’s life. Never give up!’
