What do you love about CrossFit and Fitness?
I love that CrossFit and fitness in general brings out and develops the character of every person who steps foot in the gym. The determination, mentality, and focus required to achieve one’s goals is put to the test with every rep, every set, and every day you choose to give it your all.
What do you love about being and ECF Coach?
I love the community that ECF has built and the dedication that the members have to improve themselves in fitness and all areas of their lives. My goal and focus as a coach is to see the potential in every lifter that takes my classes. By focusing on technique, improving weaknesses, and building strengths, it is my hope to be able to see many weightlifters grow and compete in this sport and take it as far as they are willing to work for it.
What makes your coaching style unique? What specialties and expertise do you bring to ECF?
My background as a competitive weightlifter allows me the unique privilege of coaching with an awareness of the mentality and drive it takes to approach a tough training program and the ferocity that athletes need to step foot onto a platform and lift heavy.
Words of encouragement for new members?
My encouragement to all new members and lifters is to learn to struggle WELL. It’s going to be tough, it’s going to be tempting to quit, no one is denying that this is a struggle - but it’s how you handle that struggle, that difficult movement, that heavy barbell, that builds the character necessary to reach your goals.
