I was an active kid, playing sports in middle school and high school and spending my school vacations hiking the Appalachian Trail, but it wasn’t until college that I really became interested in fitness. We were required to take a physical education credit and I just couldn’t bring myself to take aerobics or horseback riding (I’m actually kind of scared of horses). So I signed up for a weightlifting class. It was really just a circuit of machines and we did the same ones every class. But it was enough to peak my interest and I soon realized that I was pretty strong. I continued lifting weights after the semester class ended and I started running to and from the gym. While everyone else was sleeping in, I was usually the first one at the gym in the morning. I really loved working out and sharing it with other people so I pursued certification as a personal trainer.
I worked in different gyms for a couple of years and frequently heard of CrossFit. It was generally something the other trainers did for their own workouts, but I thought it was too hard for me. It wasn’t until I became totally burned out programming for and coaching other people that I really became interested in CrossFit. I spent so much time and energy on my clients that I myself had stopped working out. I needed motivation! That’s when I remembered CrossFit. Like most people, once I experienced it, I was hooked. I loved working out in a fun group and I needed the motivation of striving to improve with every workout.
Once I committed to CrossFit on a regular basis I became leaner and stronger, and at that point it only made sense to become a CrossFit instructor and share what had worked best for me. I love teaching people new things and watching them progress and succeed. CrossFit empowers you to do things that once seemed impossible. I feel privileged that I get to witness people turning the impossible into the possible everyday!
CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer
CrossFit Strongman Certified Trainer
Garage Games 2011 New England Finals – 37th out of 109 Male competitors (Rx’d Division)
“As an athlete in high school and college, I have seen the levels individuals can rise to in the spirit of both competition and camaraderie above and beyond their normal capabilities. I had never thought to integrate these elements into my own training program, until I discovered CrossFit. Going to the gym is no longer something I need to drag myself to when I am not in the mood, it is something I really look forward to. This is owed to the proven results CrossFit provides and to the exceptional community and environment surrounding it, specifically at Forever Crossfit. If you want to work hard, test your limits, and be a better athlete, CrossFit is the avenue, end of story.”
