I got into CrossFit back in 2012 with the main goals of getting jacked and growing a beard. As I began this journey, I quickly became obsessed. After five years of CrossFit, first as a casual gym goer progressing slowly to an amateur competitive athlete, I started my coaching career. Originally at CrossFit Humanity in San Diego, I began coaching large group classes full time, personal training individuals one on one, and running a free class for veterans. Since moving back to Redding, I have launched my own personal training business and have continued growing my skill set as a coach at Northstate CrossFit. I am also currently in massage therapy school learning anatomy and kinesiology which will ultimately improve my abilities as a coach. Crossfit has allowed me to realize the importance of self discipline and the benefit of putting yourself through intense struggle. I hope to continue sharing these life changing benefits with others.
