What has been your favorite CrossFit moment so far?
My favorite moments have always followed conversations with athletes, when an athlete sets a goal and allows me to be involved with the process and watching that person achieve said goals are always the best! It doesnt matter if its the CF games, local competition, losing 10lbs or doing a box jump they all are as equally enjoyable because I get to see what goes on behind the curtains.
What has been your favorite CrossFit WOD and why?
Im a sucker for ������Diane������, short sweet, deadlifts and HSPU!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully 5yrs older and being that old grey guy in class still ripping out workouts!

What is the most challenging aspect of CrossFit?
After coaching for 10yrs the most challenging part of CrossFit is comparing yourself to others! New athletes or seasoned competitors all suffer from this, I have found that when people focus back on themselves they enjoy the process more and achieve more along the way! There is always someone more fit or stronger than you just give it time yiu will find them.
What advice would you give to someone new to CrossFit?
Have fun, make friends and eat good for you food!
