Athletics played a major role in my life from early on. Starting when I was 3 years old, my mom signed me up for wrestling. Even though I only wrestled up until 3rd grade, it taught me many great life lessons that I have carried on. From that point on hard work and dedication would play an integral role in my life. I also grew up playing baseball until high school where I transitioned over to track and field. I didn’t start playing football until 8th grade where I eventually developed my passion for strength and conditioning. Finally, I ended my athletic career competing in track and field at UW Oshkosh for 1 year and qualifying for Nationals in the 4x100m. My hobbies have always been based around sporting events and being in the outdoors. Relaxing in the country and working on my Grandpa’s farm is my ideal vacation that I love to enjoy whenever I get the time.
What brought you to CrossFit:
When my college athletic career ended, I went into bodybuilding type training. After only lifting weights in this fashion I became very deconditioned. Seeing the crossfit games on TV sparked my interest and made me pursue trying crossfit.
What is your favorite aspect to CrossFit:
