How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
I started doing Crossfit in fall of 2014. I had been interested in starting Crossfit for a couple years
before that but being a broke college student I never committed to joining until I moved back home
after college. Back at home there was a box that just opened a few blocks away from my house and
my dad (who never worked out) brought it up to me and asked if I was interested in joining with him. I
said of course and was hooked immediately.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Family? Job? Hobbies?
I am 25 years old and live in Wauconda with my beautiful wife Meghan. I have been teaching
Physical/ Health education for 3 years and currently teach at Gavin Central School. In my free time
besides working out, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and being outdoors.
Favorite WOD and Favorite Movement?

I love any partner WOD. The more people the better.
My favorite movement is push jerk.

Least favorite WOD and Least Favorite Movement?

Open workout 16.1 is my least favorite workout. Those overhead walking lunges were brutal.
Therefore, my least favorite movement is overhead walking lunges.

Your Favorite junk food?
Goldfish
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you
want with you?
Phone, fishing pole, sunscreen

Describe yourself in one word?
Passionate
If you could create a WOD, what would it look like?

It would definitely be a partner WOD. Something around 15 minutes with a barbell going overhead in
it.
