About Coach

I am a native of Edmond, OK, and from a very early age sports became an obsession. I grew up playing football, baseball, and basketball. Throughout high school, I continued to play football but during my sophomore year, I started wrestling and moved away from the other two sports. Some of my accomplishments include all-state in football and placing 3rd at state in wrestling. I went on to play football at SWOSU, was a 4-year starter, and finished in the top 5 all-time in tackles. One thing that really helped me on my fitness journey was the quality of coaches I had for strength and conditioning in high school and college. At each level, I had coaches that were detail orientated, motivational, and had a master plan for our programming. Even though the focus of that programming was football-specific, that attention to detail and coaching style is why I was initially attracted to CrossFit. Through sports I have grown to love exercise and leaving college I knew I had to find something that scratched the itch of competition, a team environment, and accomplishing new goals. I committed to trying CrossFit while going to grad school in St. Louis and haven’t looked back since. Six years later I am still loving every bit of it and I am more bought in than ever to the methodology and the power behind it. CrossFit is the only thing I have seen that, when done right, approaches the person holistically through nutrition, a sense of community, improving mobility and stability, and pushing yourself with new goals and fitness aspirations. I am proud to have gotten my L1 certification and hope to continue to grow as a coach.

Turning Point

Motivation & Passion

Simply put, my purpose for coaching is you. I want to give back to people and I think that coaching CrossFit is a wonderful way to do that. CrossFit’s methodology has the power to completely change someone’s life and I want to be a part of that. I coach for the personal bests that you achieve, from seeing people’s faces light up when they finally accomplish a movement they have been working on, and seeing the group come together after a brutal workout and laugh about it. The growth that happens in CrossFit is why I coach.
