Hi I’m EJ and since day one of walking into CrossFit VU I knew that CrossFit was for me and haven’t looked back. My favorite part of CrossFit is definitely the old fashioned grinder type of metcons and AMRAPs. I started CrossFit because I looked in the mirror one day and saw a 29 year dad who was 50 pounds overweight and had zero energy or motivation.

I knew from that moment I did not want to be that person anymore. 2.5 years later that person no longer exists, my physical and mental well- being have increased ten- fold and that is what I wanted to give back to the members when I started coaching. If I can do it, anybody can! You can bet it won’t be easy but with Passion, Hard work, and Dedication, anyone can change their life for the better!

One of my favorite quotes is, “IT WILL HURT. It will take time. It will require dedication. It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions. It requires sacrifice. You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But, I promise you, when you reach your goal,it’s WORTH IT.”
