  • CrossFit Level 1


I have always loved playing sports and challenging myself physically. I grew up in Aurora, playing baseball, basketball, and football. After competing in all three sports throughout high school, I was able to continue playing baseball in college.

After college, I was getting bored doing the same workouts at the gym everyday, and I was looking for my next challenge. I wasn’t sure what to do—until my wife, Erica, starting doing CrossFit. I started copying her workouts, and realized I found something unlike anything else I’d ever done before.

CrossFit allows me to push myself to a different level and whether I am in a class or doing a workout on my own, I always learn a lot mentally and physically. We moved to Bartlett in 2017 and joined CrossFit Arioch. It’s been such an amazing experience! I love being a part of a gym with such a strong sense of community and commitment to helping each of its members achieve their goals. Coaching has been my lastest step in my CrossFit journey and I am excited to help members continue to fall in love with the sport!
