In the fall of 2009 I was introduced to CrossFit by a good friend, Chris Truelsen. I remember how passionate he was about this "new" workout routine that was producing results the local "health club" couldn't. I knew he was on to something. I enrolled shortly thereafter at a CrossFit gym, and proceeded to see results much as Chris had. Scheduled classes, friends/members, and the CrossFit community held me accountable. CrossFit has become a favorite passion of mine. I have seen friend after friend achieve fitness levels they had never had before.
As a former competitive athlete, who spent his 20's working, raising a family and eating everything in site I woke up one morning as a 6'3", 364 lb. tired man. The combination of diet, exercise/CrossFit, and hard work, has saved and given me new life! I'm a better husband, father, and friend.
