Let's Talk TrainingKnowledgeable CrossFit Trainers Are The Difference
I was born and raised in the Midwest, Indiana to be specific, like most young adults do, I decided I needed a change of scenery so in 2002 I picked up and moved out to AZ. I made the decision to start doing CrossFit in 2011 after a back injury forced me to seek chiropractic treatment in order to deal with some ongoing and pretty painful sciatic pain.
Soon after I started going to the chiropractor I saw a flyer for a local CrossFit gym and decided to give it a try; I knew that getting stronger, namely in my core, I would hopefully never have as much pain as I did that day walking into the chiropractor.
At the time I didn’t have very good gym habits. I worked out at a typical bro type gym with no solid goal in sight. Needless to say, I wasn’t seeing much in the way of progress or results. After starting CrossFit I immediately saw a drop in weight and added muscle mass and the best, most convenient part was all I had to do was just show up and put in the work, the rest was pretty much taken care of for me. The more involved I became in the CrossFit community, the more addicting it became. I really enjoyed how the workouts challenged me, and how the community was always there to push me, encourage me and hold me accountable.
Crossfit as a whole has had a huge impact on my life as it has not only affected the way I workout, but it has also taught me better ways to manage my diet, my stress level and my sleeping habits just to name a few. After 2 years of CrossFit training, I decided that I wanted to give back and help others find the benefits of Crossfit and just how impactful it could be. After getting certified for my Level 1, I went on to get certified in CrossFit Football as well in hopes to learn more about training sports specific athletes. I put that cert to work in right away in training my younger cousin Dylan who at the time was just starting high school football.
Soon after working with Dylan, I bought a hand full of equipment and twice a week I would train him and a few friends out of his home garage. One thing led to another and before I knew it I was running garage gym workouts three times a week for his friends, their parents, and some additional family members. After a year and a half of working out of his garage, sweating from the summer heat and freezing in the winter I decided to take the next step and open CrossFit North Phoenix where I could build my own community and the rest is history!
