I played a lot of the kid’s sports growing up; baseball, basketball, soccer, and even rugby. At about 11ish, I had a big swing away from team sports into the “Extreme Sports”. I started riding and racing dirt bikes, I picked up skateboarding and snowboarding soon after.
In 2003, at the age of 18, I enlisted into the Air Force. In that time I was involved in continuous physical training along with an active lifestyle. In 2012, I shattered my ankle riding motocross. It took a few surgeries and a couple of years of rehabilitation to get to a point of some kind of functionality. When 2015 came around, was cleared to deploy to Afghanistan.
There, I had a couple of mishaps with my ankle that ultimately led to my medical separation in 2016. I moved back to Colorado and jumped right into college life to major in Nutrition/Dietetics (still in progress).
I found CrossFit in 2014 after physical therapy was no long needed. A close friend of mine encouraged me to see what it was all about. I had very little knowledge of CrossFit at that time. After a few weeks of workouts and Murph, I was addicted. CrossFit, as a whole, continuously makes my life better in every way. The community of CrossFit has given me so much, now I want to pay it back by coaching.
