MEET THE COACHES
I have been doing CrossFit since 2010 and started doing it to train in the offseason for football. I love to compete in CrossFit and dedicate a lot of time to improve myself for competition. I finished the CrossFit open in 2013 in 12th place and finished 19th at CrossFit regionals. In 2014, I finished 11th and regionals and in 2015, with the changes to the formatting, I finished 33rd. I hope to eventually make it to the CrossFit games and compete with the best in the world. I love coaching CrossFit to see the changes in people physical and emotional lives. I hope to keep coaching for the rest of my life and be able to have an impact on people’s lives daily.
Certification: CrossFit Level 1
I started Crossfit in 2012 and have been training consistently ever since. Before Crossfit I was active by moderately running, biking and other typical gym activities. By no means did I consider myself an athlete since my days of middle school sports. I am now a level 1 coach and have competed in 4 competitions and 2 open seasons. My goal is to make it to regionals in the future. I eat mainly real foods consisting of lean meats, vegetables, fruits and some grains. I feel and train my best when I eat and sleep well. I encourage anyone and everyone to try Crossfit. Not only is the community amazing but I guarantee you will walk away with your head held a little higher after your first wod. My advice for people coming into Crossfit is to remember where you started and how far you’ve come. It’s your journey!

My motivation in CrossFit not only comes from wanting to maintain my health but also from my daughter. I want to see her grow up as part of the CrossFit community to understand the importance of health and fitness. In the gym, I put as much into every WOD as possible so that it motivates others to continue to push themselves and work harder. I enjoy helping people get better at the gym and seeing our members hit a PR and the smile on their face is enough to push anyone to continue to do their best.
Outside of CrossFit, I try to continue to be as active as possible. I have run 5K’s, the Warrior Dash, the Metro Dash and I plan on doing the Valpo Triathalon in 2014. When I eat clean, it makes me feel lighter, faster, stronger and more energetic, but I incorporate a plan to increase size and performance by getting slots of cards before bed to load up for my morning session at the gym. I want to tell the Top Fuel Community that while your at the box put everything you have into the programming. Warmup, strength, and Wod. Tighten up your diet and I guarantee you’ll get results.
