About Coach

I have been involved in organized sports and athletics since I could walk. My first passions were soccer, basketball, and track and field. In my adult life, I found endurance sports. I spent years running half-marathons and all the shorter distances and competing in all distances of triathlons culminating in a full distance Ironman (140.6) and a 4.4 mile swim across the Chesapeake Bay to end my time in that sport.

Turning Point

I found CrossFit in 2017, and am both a fitness coach and personal trainer. I believe fitness boils down to a mindset, and that mindset will lead to not only improved fitness and health, but also to success in all aspects of everyday life. A positive mindset that is free from barriers will help you become the best and happiest version of yourself.

Motivation & Passion

I am under no illusion that I am some sort of magician and will wave a wand and all your troubles will disappear, and you’ll become a CrossFit Games competitor and crush life, but I can assure you that I will listen to your goals, help you find a path to achieve those goals, and be your biggest cheerleader…there’s also a good chance I’ll push you out of your comfort zone a little along the way.
