Biography

I found CrossFit after two friends convinced me to come with them to a 101 class after I had told them all the reasons why I thought CrossFit was bad news. The only part of the workout I remember was the box jumps, and how Shane joked with me about how stiff my hip flexors were because of the way I had to bring my feet around the box to jump on it!
My favorite movements to each are all Olympic lifts because they are so elegant. I really enjoy coaching Shatter’s Barbell sessions and watching members make movement connections that have huge pay offs.
