How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
I started CrossFit in June 2012.
So I have battled weight my whole life, Back in 2010 I topped the scales at 350#. I lost my dad to a heart attack just before in 2009 so I decided I needed to make some serious life changes. I tried personal trainers, p90x, globo gym, but nothing stuck… Until my buddy and I decided to just give crossfit a free trial week, and I loved the community.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. Family? Job? Hobbies?
Have been married for 14 years to Kelly and have 2 chocolate labs (Marley and Parker). I love to golf, travel, eat, and have the occasional drink… ok, well I need to cut back on some of that again!
Favorite WOD and Favorite Movement?
Grace. Clean and Jerk.
Least favorite WOD and Least Favorite Movement?
Your Favorite junk food?
I could go on for days here… Probably pizza if I had to pick one. I don’t like to call it junk food though… if I think junk food, I think of Kale or Broccoli, that seems more like junk to me than pizza.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want with you?
Titos, iPhone, Sand wedge (need to work on my bunker game).
Describe yourself in one word?
Overcommited or Passionate. I like to commit to just about anything someone asks me to do. Travel, CF, golf, marathon, work, Harley…
If you could create a WOD, what would it look like?
Partner WOD for sure. Without naming names (Chris) my partner would make sure we set the pace slow and steady…
