Topeka, KS

31 yrs old

Systems & Development Engineer at Red Robin International, Inc.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Ski/Snowboard & Golf

How long have you been a member at CrossFit Verve?
2 years

What is your background in sports and fitness?
Played golf in college, played high school soccer & basketball

What changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit?
A dramatic increase in lower body strength after spending most of my 20’s at 24 hour fitness gyms with barbell curls, incline bench and cable flys. I never really knew what my max lifts were due to working out by myself all the time.

Has CrossFit influenced your life outside of the gym? If so, how?
It definitely gives me something to look forward to after work and has allowed me to hit the ski season at 100% instead of a struggling through the initial conditioning most mountaineers encounter.

What’s your favorite benchmark workout?

Any advice for someone just starting?
CrossFit can be intimidating in the beginning, but is worth the struggle. Outside of back squatting and bench press I had never attempted an olympic lift before CrossFit.
