Jefferson City, Missouri


Currently in between jobs,  I’d love to talk to anyone willing to help out. 

What do you like to do in your free time?    
Mostly get in the mountains and do everything involving the  outdoors.  I grew up in the middle of Missouri and was always running around in the woods, hanging out on friends farms or going to the Lake of the Ozarks.  I was never inside.  When I was young I was lucky enough to go on a family trip to Durango, which is where I first fell in love with the mountains.  I’m not sure how many years after that trip I ended up going on a ski trip to Keystone and knew this is where I wanted to be.  I moved to Vail after college and stayed for about a decade before moving down to the city.  I still try to ski every once in a while, but mainly focus all my free time and energy on mountain biking, fishing, and hunting during the fall. 

How long have you been a member at CrossFit Verve? 
A little over 3 years 

What is your background in sports and fitness?  
I grew up playing soccer and baseball. 

What changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit?  
Physically I have definitely gotten leaner and more muscular.   I also have noticed a big difference in strength and endurance with everything I do outside of the gym. 

Has CrossFit influenced your life outside of the gym?  If so how?    
I’ve always been a tall skinny guy that  wanted to be bigger.  Since starting at Verve I’ve put wanting to gain weight behind me and focused on all around health so I can continue to do the things I love outside of the gym.   I’ve also learned how much diet affects how I feel on a day to day basis.  My whole purpose for going to workout consistently is so that I can enjoy doing the things I love in the mountains. 

Whats favorite benchmark work out? 
I’m not too good with workout names.  I really like the long chipper style workouts. 

Any advice for someone just starting? 
Listen to the coaching, they are there to help.  Also, try to keep your goals in mind when you walk in the door.
