My family and I are relatively new to the Charlotte area. My wife and kids moved here in the summer of 2019 and I joined them in the fall after finishing up 20 years of active duty service in the Air Force. We are extremely fortunate to have found an awesome community with the CrossFit Harrisburg family. My journey with CrossFit started in 2012 shortly after my wife and I started our family. I was looking for a way to stay physically active and challenge myself without spending hours at a local gym everyday. CrossFit has not only met those needs but far exceeded them.
I have a deep passion for fitness and truly believe it is never to late to start your journey and make positive life changes. I have been physically active my whole life and began resistance training when I was 15 years old. In 2017 I received my CrossFit level 1 certification. I received my Bachelors degree in Exercise Science in 2020 and recently completed a Massage and Body work Certification. Pairing these qualifications will allow me to better guide our athletes towards reaching their personal best and ultimately achieving any goal they set for themselves. I like to focus on the little things while coaching in an effort to increase our overall level of fitness. Strengthening the core, mobility, joint stability, rest and nutrition are all aspects of fitness that are just as important if not more than lifting big weights and performing lots of reps.
I'm a proud father of two boys that love CrossFit and are multi-sport athletes.
I look forward to working with the CrossFit Harrisburg community and helping all of you reach your very best!
