Early in my life, my fitness journey was a directionless effort in futility. I was always involved in sports in some way, shape or form, but working out was always a challenge. I tried working out at Globo Gyms, friend’s garage gyms, P90X, Insanity, T25 etc., I just couldn’t stick to anything. I started getting older, weaker and just not as healthy as I wanted to be. Finally, in 2014, I decided to contact area Crossfit gyms and get some information. Coach Leo called me back and I have been a member at NSX ever since.
I have been involved with coaching Middle School and High School Baseball for the past 14 years, so when Leo approached me about becoming a coach and leading a Teens Program, I jumped at the chance. I interned for about 3 months, acquired my Crossfit L1 Coaching Certification, passed all required tests and became a coach in November 2021.
My wife and I live in West Richland and are expecting a new puppy in the Spring of 2022. I listen to all kinds of music, but lean towards Country, Punk and Rock for the workouts that I coach. I can be persuaded to play other genres, too. Coaching at NSX is a natural fit for me. I have been a member for 7+ years and our NSX community are second to none! They are supportive, hard working and some of the best people you will ever meet. It’s an honor to coach such an amazing group of people and their trust makes me want to be a better coach, athlete and person.
