A COACH IS BORN

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.

A COACH FOR LIFE

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!
