My post college career didn’t start in the fitness field, instead it started…back at college. I started working at a local college with an 8-4 office job and was on the coaching staff for the men’s basketball team. While I felt right at home coaching basketball, far too often I would wake up in the morning wishing the next 8 hours away…day after day. It was not a life full of potential and fulfilling moments. We should be excited when the alarm goes off each morning, right?
The turning point came when my best friend introduced me to CrossFit sometime in 2012. I remember asking him, “What are we going to do after we do this workout?” He laughed, knowing there wouldn’t need to be “something else” afterwards. Like most peoples’ first CrossFit workout, I was crushed. Muscles on fire, covered in sweat…and hooked. For the first time in months I felt alive. The same way that all my years of competitive sports had made me feel.
I live by idea that we are either evolving and improving or we are falling behind. The same does not exist. With this in mind, I started to study human movement, CrossFit, nutrition, mobility, aspects of physical therapy, mindset…anything I could to better myself. The only limits we have are the ones we create, right? So why not go for it? With a new passion for life after sports, I decided to take a run at coaching full time so that I could help as many people as possible who might benefit from the same new lease on life that I received.
I moved to Green Bay in the fall of 2014. I am a NASM certified personal trainer, CrossFit L2 trainer, and have certifications in Movement and Mobility and well as CrossFit Gymnastics.
I wake up excited every morning knowing that I’ll have a lot of opportunities to make someone’s day better or that if I do my job, I’ll make a lasting positive impact on everyone that I get to work with. My hope is that one day, I’ll get to work with you, too.
