How long have you been doing Crossfit and why?

7 years. I started back when I was a state fire instructor as a way to expand my knowledge when it came to teaching rookie firefighter classes.

What is your favorite part about coaching?

My favorite part of coaching is finding that one step that was missing in an athlete’s process. That one joint that isn’t flexible enough, and showing them why it’s the root of their problem. Or the mental cue/phrase that makes sense to them. It can be pretty rewarding when you find that one thing for someone and watch it make all the difference.

Favorite cheat meal?

Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food, Oreos, Wings, Hot Dogs, and Sour Patch Kids.

Life outside of the gym:

I spent about a decade as a Fireman/ Paramedic, followed by a brief stint as a Police Officer before leaving that life behind me. Now I work for myself building furniture and renovating homes. Never been happier! Married the beautiful Kaycee Hines (featured above), and love spending time with her in this beautiful city.
