I have been CrossFitting for 2 ½ years and I specialize in gymnastics skills, strength training, and proper mindset practices. My passion is helping people realize their full potential. Inside and outside the gym. I love seeing the excitement of progress no matter how big or small. Their first pull up, muscle up, bench press PR, squat PR, handstand push up, run 1 mile ect.
My athletic background consists of basketball, track and cross country in high school. One of my notable accomplishments was a 4th place finish in the state (Alabama) at the decathlon meet my senior year. I was first exposed to Crossfit back in 2012 when my older sister invited me to check it out. I would come back from time to time but never fully committed.
In late 2016 after being extremely bored with the typical bodybuilding routine I needed a change and something that involved some competition so I took the plunge and started doing nothing but Crossfit. After about a year and a half of being a member and making really fast progress I was approached by the owners of the box about being a coach. I already had 10 years of experience personal training at various gyms so I liked the idea. I signed up for my Level 1 course and got certified in October of 2018.
One of my favorite quotes is ‘Do or do not, there is no try’
