The turning point in my life was June 5, 2004 when my Dad died. He was truly my hero and taught me pretty much everything I know today. But most important he taught me how to be a man. After traveling and working all over the country, in 2003 I finally settled down and built a house next to him on his farm. My first child (his first grandchild) was born in November 2003 and we named her after my Dad’s mom. It seemed like life was pretty much perfect until he passed away suddenly when she was only 5 months old. I’ve never been the same since that day, but it taught me that nothing is guaranteed and we have to live life to it’s fullest.
Motivation & Passion
I started doing CrossFit in 2008 and immediately knew it was for me. In 2013 I took my L-1 certification but did not begin coaching till I moved to Georgia and joined CrossFit Shakerag in 2017. My passion is to stay active and to show my family a positive and healthy example. CrossFit has evolved for me from being a competitive outlet to now being a coach and helping others attain their goals.
