I jumped into the world of CrossFit late in life in an effort to get healthy and change my stars… At 49 years of age, I was a father of 4, step father of 3 (yes, that’s seven in total) and a grandfather of 3.  I flew all over the world for work and had your typical stress filled life.  Well, it caught up with me and I suffered an MI (Heart Attack).  My Doctors recommended I lose the stress and regain my physical fitness.  I have always been active in some kind of way, whether it was hiking, playing softball, coaching football or training batting practice.  Athletics had always had a place in my life but I let work take that away from me.   I knew i needed to reprioritized my life and realized fitness had to be a top priority.  CrossFit saved me and got me back on the right path.  Now, 4 years later I have taken that next step and decided to start training and coaching CrossFit.

I am a 53 years old, a 17 year Navy Veteran.  Growing up, I played Football and Baseball… but in my neighborhood there were 11 boys so we played just about any sport you can imagine.  Athletics is in my blood.  I played team based sports for about 10 years giving me a well-rounded understanding of sport movements and fundamentals.  I assisted with batting (swing, stance and contact) fundamentals for 2 years, at the college level, while Stationed at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where I taught Thermodynamics for 3 years.  I suffer from Osteoarthritis, so I understand the importance of proper body movement and how to work through and around limitations brought on by the condition.  I grew up in the Dickinson/Clear Lake/Pasa-get-down-dena area and Have traveled around the world 3 times.  An avid chef, I am a lover of  food, so keeping active is even that much more important.
